Students are very diverse. Not much bullying occurs and people like students that stand out and are different. That's one of my favorite things about our school. When I meet other students from different schools they seem to be almost immature compared to BDHS students. Others may disagree, but since we have people from poor households to very wealthy ones of many different cultures it's almost hard to find someone exactly like yourself. This provides excellent preparation for adult social life since you experience different people all the time then.

Beaver Dam High School is pretty good at stopping an issue if one occurs. For instance, when it comes to social media they are great. There have been previous school threats made on Facebook that were immediately taken care of. As far as bullying goes there isn't too much of that going on. Our student body is pretty mature as a whole and our faculty always addresses an issue if noticed. Our school nurse is a hit or miss. One time a student had a broken ankle and she told him it was fine and to go back to class for the day, but she also told my friend he had a heart condition when he had some complications at school and handled that situation well. I think they try to reach out to students that have issues at home, but students don't really take advantage of many of the opportunities out there due to lack of knowledge of the programs.
The most frustrating thing about BDHS is there tutoring programs. I see many students go to the resource room to get help on tests that are very capable of doing it on their own. When I asked a student why he goes to the resource room for help he replied that he goes because the teacher there often times just provides the answers of the tests to the students there. This is so frustrating to me because it encourages the students that may need to work harder to not work hard at all. On the other hand though, I think they provide a lot of help to the students actually in need of it and do a great job doing so.
