Other answer is incorrect. There are live cows on screen, and one gets tipped, but that particular cow looks quite fake, you don’t really see it fall, and it’s implied it isn’t harmed.

JD lies to Veronica about the bullets in their guns being tranquilizers so that she'll go along with killing the jocks. He also doesn't tell her that she is giving drain cleaner to Heather C.

JD's dad is almost certainly abusive, though nothing gruesome is depicted. He speaks toward his son with extreme contempt. He has a lot of rage boiling below the surface, and it feels as though he might explode at any moment.

Heather C. (a high schooler) is coerced into performing oral sex on a college student who says he "can't control himself." A college student puts his hand on Veronica's thigh and insists she have sex with him, but she walks away from the situation. Ram is seen in the background pinning down and forcing himself on Heather M. JD forcibly kisses Veronica numerous times, even pinning her down to a couch until she breaks free.

It's in the background of a scene so not shown in graphic detail and not the focus of the scene, but you can see it from a distance and you can clearly tell what's happening.

The movie mostly revolves around high school students.
In this case, it's mostly showing teenagers sexualizing other teenagers.

However, there is a college party that the Heathers and Veronica go to. The college students there are not aware that they are high school students.
