Approach to addressing and preventing bullying Our teachers present a community of students in classrooms where all students feel safe and appreciated. Our students attend guidance classes every other week where our counselor addresses various character traits that promote kindness, tolerance, and appreciation for individuality and diversity of our student body. Although not often, school administrators are available to offer assistance to teachers and parents related to this issue.
