It's quite easy to skip a class without getting caught - all you have to do is hang out in the new wing where there are less guards (if any at all). If you're a short person, your chances of getting squashed or "stepped on" in the halls are very high since they tend to get very crowded. This also causes problems during fire drills. If there were really a serious fire in the school, a lot of the kids wouldn't make it out in time due to the amount of time it takes to get over 3,000 kids out of a three-story building.
Some students find it funny to squirt ketchup and mustard on the railings in the stairways and stand by and watch as people get it all over their hands. A day without at least one fight breaking out is a great accomplishment for NBHS, and so is a month without any lock-downs or bomb threats. When there is a food fight, more police cars show up at the school than when there's a bomb threat.
