Do you feel safe in the school you're in? Feel free to share why?

I'm not currently in school, but I felt safeish in my High School, even though it was full of idiots.

It did seem pretty safe... once had a lock-down because someone spotted a garden hose nozzle in a truck thinking it was a gun. It was stupidly secure.

This topic did make me remember firing rifles (blanks) and that hilariously made the coca-cola delivery driver immediately dive to the ground. It seems he was used to gunfire since he reacted so quickly.

We just need a Shiba Tatsuya at every school, then I'd feel safer 100%

Yes?

In high school I was bullied a lot, and the school didn't do anything about it so that made me feel less than safe but I still trusted myself to be able to survive.

I went to high school during the peak of school shooting era, and to be honest my friends and I had a few kids we knew who we really thought were weirdly suspicious and we talked about how we felt they were going to be the next or something equally tragic. Our way of ensuring our survival was we befriended them, ate lunch with them, talked to them. We figured if we were friends they wouldn't blow our heads off our shoulders when they decided to massacre everyone else. Thankfully, none of them ever did, but I think we were pretty clever in how we tried to make sure we didn't die if they did.

For the most part my High School was safe. I think we had 3 bomb threats and 1 gun scare, though that was just some idiot that brought a gun to school with the intentions of selling it to someone... yeah he wasn't very bright. We had plenty of other minor incidents, but nothing else that I can think of that made me question my safety.

Not really, my Highschool is full of shifty characters that are more likely to try and sell you drugs or threaten to beat you up rather than be friendly.

Yes I do. The Principle is a very cool dude who risks his life to make sure our safety isn't at risk.

we had a few lockdowns and drugs/alcohol were found occasionally... but i never worried that much for whatever reason. But this was before all the shootings we hear about now. The one at Virginia Tech happened when i was in 11th grade.

what was more disturbing were the sports teams. One kid died in (American) football practice from a heat stroke... yet it didn't stop the team/school from practicing in those crazy hours in such a hot/humid part of the country... after that happened i never felt our sports teams were safe.

Never. My school is littered with drugs/sex/violence. And filled with shitty people. Fun.

Let's see, last year the high school I went to; students refused to to to class because their favorite teacher got fired. Some members of a gang came into the school and a huge fight broke out, which resulted a whole hallway filled with pepper spray. There was a shooting in front of the school and it was put on lockdown. Finally, used condoms found in the basement...I didn't felt safe.

The private school I go to now though I do feel safe in.

I went to college in the middle of the 3rd ward (Houston, Texas) and still felt safe. Just be aware of your surroundings and don't try to put yourself in harms way.

What is school? LOL JK, I felt safe in my high school back then because we had two huge buff policemen in the campus and they were very friendly to me whenever I see them in the hallways or the cafeteria, plus there isn't much trouble or fights in my school anyway.
