Bully Prevention

Our Social Vision
Bessemer Academy shows PRIDE by being a caring, safe, and respectful community. 

  • Differs from bullying
  • When students, of roughly equal power, perceive the other as getting in the way of their needs or goals. 
  • Can be influenced by varying aspects, such as: race, privilege, ethnicity, and body image
    • Solution: Help students resolve the issue using conflict resolution skills

  • Repeated dominance and intimidation (physical/verbal/relational/cyber) by a student with more power (real or perceived) than the other student.
