Our Commitment to Bullying Prevention
Nearly one in five students report being bullied in school1, an experience that can profoundly impact their well-being and long-term goals. Bullying can take many forms, including physical altercations, spreading rumors, or online cruelty.
Knowing the signs and preventing bullying are crucial to creating an environment where students feel safe to learn and grow. K12 is committed to preventing bullying, and we have a zero-tolerance policy. Teachers at K12-powered schools are trained to recognize signs of bullying and take immediate action.

“No student should ever be worried about going to school or logging into class because they’re afraid of being abused or mistreated.”

K12 Chief Executive Officer
Student Mental Health Matters
A student’s mental health can affect their academic performance, and their educational environment can impact their mental health. It’s closely intertwined, meaning supporting students from all angles is important to creating a safe space for productive and effective learning.
For some students and their families, transitioning to online learning can be a great option for dealing with mental health challenges.

K12 Strives to Make All Students Feel Safe
For students to learn effectively, they must feel safe enough to open their minds, try new things, and push themselves past their comfort zones. K12-powered schools offer safe learning environments so every student can reach their full potential.
