Very good, they support mental health.

I'm currently a student at this school and the staff is incompetent and they neglect to address issues such as harassment and bullying in a timely or effective manner for example I was harassed for months by a group and despite going to the staff multiple times it took 2 months for the office staff to address it and when they did, it was in the form of a restoration circle which had no effect on the harassment and the people harassing me walked away with no punishment. The staff is incompetent and ineffective at their jobs I would like to see them held accountable for their lake of respect towards their students. This has happened to multiple other people at this school. No one should half to deal with the behavior that the staff allows at a big picture.
