There really weren't that many policies, just don't talk bad about others and don't cause any behavior distractions. But those happened everyday.

I really had a tough time trying to forget my experience at this school. I really hated my experience with befriending others. I mean, the situations would come and go, but other than that, I was bullied, and other times I just felt like an outsider.
They varied in extracurricular, which is pretty great considering they just opened back then recently.
