Art comes in many forms but is graffiti considered one of them? Many people think of graffiti as a nuisance or vandalism, or that it’s a bother to clean up and erase from city walls. But there is a fine line defining what is art and what is vandalism. Sometimes graffiti can be non-attractive when it's...

The dress code is effective here at Broomfield High, as it is effective everywhere. It keeps students “focused on their learning”.
