When it comes to the health and safety of the students on the district's priorities, its easy to say that they are not anywhere near the top. While the school has efficient security measures (although there is always room for improvement) I've heard many students say that in case of an emergency or threat they did not think that security would be able to handle said threat. In defense of the school, there are cameras at every corner and and guards near the main entrance of the school, however, its been addressed by many people that once a threat got past the few unarmed security guards, there would be no other defenses for the students other then locked doors. Even worse then then the safety measures are the health measures of the school. Physically, the school is a fit environment for adolescents. But mentally, the school is a battleground for students where some fall and other conquer. But what is the war? Bullying. LGBT slurs thrown left and right, students blocking the halls for other students, and snide comments in class that teachers ignore daily. This is a day in the life of a middle school student here. While some might say that the school takes top measures about bullying, the only measures that seem to be present are those that involve not taking care of the harassment at hand.

My overall educational experience was alright but not as good as the educational experience I received after attending the school. Personally, the majority of my teachers didn't understand that the way they were teaching didn't agree with the way I learned and it led to difficult relationships on my part with some of them. It made it difficult to ask for help out of lack of respect. Socially, my experience was horrible. I was surrounded by students who didn't care about how what they said affected others, and were completely ignorant of other people's beliefs and ways of expressing themselves.
In the school and district there is a strong lack of diversity, however for those that are of a racial minority there is very little discrimination in the school when it comes to bullying. Over race is the only thing that is overall socially accepted. Students are judges daily because of their looks, how they act, and how the present/ express themselves, making the school not a fun environment for those that are not considered to be whatever is the present way to look (aka popular).
