There has been a decent amount of fights that have been happening on the school campus and everyone has their own mixed opinions and feelings towards them. Most teenagers in high school always want to see someone fight and instigate the kids fighting into doing just so.
During the week of March 19th-23rd, there were six fights on school grounds. The school had five police officers stay in the downstairs hallways to try and prevent any more fights from happening.
“I think that the fights on campus are funny but useless because nobody knows how to fight anymore. Teachers try to get too involved with them and end up getting hurt and this causes bigger problems,” Jakob Villareal (9) said.
Also, ninth grader Kayden Kelly said “Teenagers beef and talk on social media which causes tension between people and then that’s how most fights happen. It's either over relationships, gangs, someone talking about someone , and he said she said accusations”. All of the admins, vice principals, and Ms. Sosa are trying to prevent anymore fights happening by showing the students that they can get in some serious trouble by being in the fight or encouraging students to fight.
Students get sent to alternative school / DEAP for 30 days or get sent to ISS for three to five days if the fight didn't cause much harm to anyone.
“All the reasons for fighting in school are useless,” Kelly said. “Fights are always going to be a normal thing in schools, and with growing up there's going to be more and more that occur because the older you get the more you try and “prove” yourself to others.”
