Fishers is a great school that cultivates student growth and provides a lot of opportunities for success in college. I would not recommend this school for unmotivated students or students not planning on attending college. If you do attend college, you might be able to graduate early or skip general classes due to the multitude of options and opportunities at Fishers!
In the middle of a home basketball game, I've actually witnessed the principal along with a police officer walking into the men's bathroom and catching a student smoking weed. At least there was a police officer there. These things do happen at the school, but not often at all. The school nurses tend to tell you to "suck it up" if you're complaining about something like a migraine or PMS, even if you're about to faint. Bullying does happen, but rarely. However, nobody really catches the bullying, so it is often extreme forms of bullying. I've never seen or heard of a problem with intruders, but the problems lie *inside* the building. There should really be some contraband/drug sweeps here. However, traffic control by the police is outstanding!
