"Every student will attend a school that is safe and secure, one that is free of fear and conducive to learning" (Center for the Prevention of School Violence, 2002) Definitions of the term "school violence" range, for example, from relating only to the use of guns in school to very extensive, including all youth misconduct and the many community and societal influences on such behavior. The Center for the Prevention of School Violence defines school violence as "any behavior that violates a school's educational mission or climate of respect or jeopardizes the intent of the school to be free of aggression against persons or property, drugs, weapons, disruptions, and disorder.” Many Struggling teens don’t know how to overcome the problems that they are faced with.

In each school year, troubled teens were at least 70 times more likely to be murdered away from school than at school. School-based violence prevention efforts can take many forms. They may work to protect struggling teenagers from danger or victimization and may also seek to prevent troubled teens from developing or relying on aggressive behavior as a way to solve conflicts. Such efforts include adopting zero tolerance policies, requiring students to wear uniforms, employing surveillance cameras and metal detectors, and stationing law enforcement and mental health personnel in the schools. Recently, the U.S. Department of Education identified the fundamental qualities of a safe and responsible school: The school has strong leadership, caring faculty, family and community involvement that includes law enforcement officials and representatives of community-based organizations, and student participation in the design of programs and policies. The physical environment of the school is safe and school wide policies are in place to promote and support responsible behaviors.

Staff are provided with training and support to help them implement programs and approaches.
