Teachers were awesome. Never felt like a teacher favored one student more than another. However, some teachers did not sympathize as much as they could for students who were struggling.

I am not really sure I saw the school nurse much during my time at NJHS. I remember one time in the lunch line someone's nose was bleeding and instead of contacting the school nurse, a teacher came to help the student? I did not feel really safe at NJHS. There were a lot of threats at school and bullying was evident.
Newark Junior High is very diverse. Some evidence of students in gangs. Students were very "clique-y".
