Bullying is a range of behaviors both verbal and physical that intimidate others and often lead to antisocial and unlawful acts. Staff, students, and parents/guardians need to understand that bullying is a pervasive problem that leads to violence. Bullying should neither be thought of as a "kids will be kids" occurrence nor accepted as a way of life. Programs to aid in the prevention of bullying type actions by students are included below under programs. Twin Towers Middle School and Middletown High School have begun student clubs based on a program called “Rachel’s Challenge”. These clubs utilize a variety of techniques and resources to help promote an environment of tolerance, acceptance and caring for fellow students and the community.
