The school is so small that you cannot choose your friends. You end up knowing your classmates a lot better than you could ever want to. There is the same amount of peer pressure and other social issues as anywhere else. However they are more easily addressed because of the low number of students. This makes it easier to speak to the individual on a more personal level. Rather than speaking to an a huge group of students who aren't paying any attention.

Indus is definitely not a school for everyone. In the past it used to be somewhat glorious, however, in the next few years I would be surprised to see it stay open. The student population is very low and unstable. But the one on one time you get with the teachers is unbeatable.
I attended Indus from K-12 and have felt safe the entire time. There will be some questionable students come around every now and then, but we have done frequent drills and taken good precaution.
