Our school is run be a democratic student government where students and adults work together to develop policies and procedures that run the school. Students have as much say as adults on most topics, which is helpful for when students disagree with policies and want to change them.
Bullying is not a prevalent issue at Hanover. The dress code was controversial during my time at Hanover because students were wearing "distracting clothing" but this seemed to be aimed at the girls' attire only and seemed to blame girls for distracting boys.
In my opinion, the guidance office is very helpful in changing course schedules and planning for college, but not so much for social/emotional support.
