I think that my school, Berlin High School, is overall a pretty positive environment. I think that there is an adequate amount of support given to anyone who is willing to come forward and ask for help. Of course, having supportive/positive friends always helps, but there are lots of adults who are willing to step in and help as well. Most of the time, teachers are very respectful of us and our opinions, but they are also not afraid to challenge our ideas as a way to educate us further. I think many of them want to ensure that we have a good and bright future ahead of us. Our school has also recently increased the number of guest speakers in order to raise our awareness about very important topics. Berlin has done a much better job, recently, in being a positive environment.
