There's a scene at the beginning where the Blonde (Julia Jennings) is in bed: part of her breasts are shown.

Implied sex in a couple of scenes.

Lisa Hammond (JoBeth Williams) pulls her top off and runs topless in the hall wearing only panties and then takes those off too.

A bunch of fights.

There's one scene where a kid pulls a gun on some cops and the cops shoot him dead. Some blood is visible.

A kid bites a teacher. Lots of blood.

A kid has a bleeding arm although it is quite unclear how it happened.

Lots of yelling and arguments.

It's a high school film so there is plenty of strong language. Although not extreme as it is set in 1984.

There are probably about 25 uses of "fuck", 25 more of "shit", same amount of hell and damn with god. The language really comes in spurts rather than being evenly scattered throughout the film.

A fair amount of drinking and smoking is present throughout. There's one scene where police find a stash of various drugs in a student's locker.

The scene where a girl is very scared that her parents will disown because she is pregnant. One of the teachers lets her get an abortion.

A father slaps his son for yelling and using profanity.

The fight scenes and other violence is pretty upsetting.

OTHER NOTE: A student falsely pulls the fire alarm twice (which is very wrong and a criminal offense).

MESSAGE: Teachers are really an important role model. They need to set an example for their students.
