The community is full of wonderful, caring people, and the faculty really does care about the students. The teaching methods through each class vary to fit many students, but some find certain curriculums still troubling. The food is extremely poor, though the kitchen staff are super nice and welcoming. The sports teams and small, yet strong and specialized.

Equipped with an anonymous reporting system (for bullying or other tell-tales) and almost every drill imaginable for this part of the state, the school is decently safe.

There are plenty of outlets in each room to allow technological educated learning, and many desks/tables to accommodate students.

The teachers really care about you and your education. They’re always willing to help you and if you need any more help they’ll schedule times to sit down and work through your work with you. Everyone knows everyone at the school so you always have someone to talk to. Our principal always shows he cares and always tries to get involved with the students including teaching a class and being the teacher for a club so that we can have someone to supervise.
Before school even starts, the buses drop off kids to a locked door that takes five minutes to get the attention of the secretary to open. It's very annoying for EVERYONE. I guess it is safe, though...

The amount of drills we hold is fair and our procedures in case of an emergency are pretty spot on, though some rooms may be safer than others. Our team of faculty to treat emergencies and students are qualified and very trustworthy people who are noted by their degrees and impeccable ability to communicate.

However, there are a lot of blind spots in what could be a much stronger defense to keep everyone safe...
