We may not have everything for our safety policies like metal detectors or like actual police officers, but if one of our students are on probation, their probation officer meets up with them frequently. We haven't had any issues with anything serious with weapons and stuff. Our school nurse comes once or twice a week shes from kaiser we don't have bullying at our school everyone gets along. I would say i feel a lot more safe at this school this i did at my other one.

My first two years in highschool weren't the best at all, i got bullied pushed around i struggled with school work no one wanted to help me. Then i transferred to John Finney Highschool for my last two years, It was nothing like i imagined everyone there was so helpful they cared about how you feel and how your doing in your class. Best teachers there would be Mrs. Gabler, Mrs. Izze then you have Mrs. V, Mrs. Alishia and Mr. Santos.
My experience at this school was great the classes were good, the teachers were more intimate with the students. I would say this school is unique for all the resources it has so you succeed and have help, they also have a lot of options for those who want to further their education. I would do this school from my freshman year if i could do it over because ik i would have been an A student for those four years not just the las two.
