COPING WITH VIOLENCE and BULLYING

Throughout their teenage years, our students will be interacting with a wide variety of people, situations, and emotions. In many situations, personal conflict between different individuals may potentially result in violence and/or injury. 

It is important to listen to our youth, and help them learn how to deal with their emotions without using violence.
