Drugs are available worldwide to countless people, but are they available to students in high school as well?
For students at Liberty High School, it’s not that easy to get them. School resource officer Dave Montalvo is Liberty’s most important measure against unsafe drug usage among students.
Montalvo patrols school parking lots and helps students through an online Q & A found on Liberty’s homepage. Montalvo’s mission is “to develop a partnership between law enforcement and the school community that provides a safe environment in which teachers, students, parents and the community can fulfill the mission and goals of the school district.”

Eastside Catholic High School administrators view drug abuse prevention as of the utmost importance, evident from the school’s policies regarding drug use and abuse.
These policies include drug-detection tests, reliance on law enforcement and the use of drug dogs.
