Fewer high school students reported being in physical fights, being victimized, or carrying weapons in school in 2013, according to the latest edition of a federal report that annually tracks student safety on school campuses.

Produced by the National Center for Education Statistics and the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the report also found that the percentage of students who reported being "afraid of attack or harm at school or on the way to and from school" dropped from 12 percent in 1995 to 3 percent in 2013. The report also covers indicators on issues like bullying, drugs, and school safety measures.
