I think that with our school, a lot of rules are enforced mainly on the problem children but then again that could be just because they cause the most problems anyway. The guidance counselor is somewhat helpful but for me personally, I have been burned by her with her telling me to apply for something I couldn't.
The teachers are amazing and they know what they are talking about.
