Many of the underclassmen teachers don't seem to care about their students and even detest their students in some cases. Some teachers double as coaches, and they ignore their teaching duties in favor of their extracurriculars. However, many of the teachers for junior and senior classes are invested in their students and are some of the best teachers in the area. The science and math departments are particularly good here.
The school places a heavy focus on anti-drug. When it comes to the random drug testing sessions, this is very inconvenient, since kids get called out of class when they could be learning. In regards to intruders, the school has made multiple measures to boost security, and recently adopted the ALICE training.
