  1. I think cell phones are most beneficial because you can do anything on them you can communicate, go on the internet and do what ever you need to get done. I think computers because we wont have to use so much paper, and it is easier to organize things.

  2. I don’t think there is much bullying at HHS, and the bullying that is present is usually more name calling and rumors instead of physical bullying. Any bullying is a problem though and it does need to be prevented. I think that the teachers and staff have to act on bullying more often and the students also have to step up and do whats right.

  3. I honestly don’t think there is a very big problem of bullying in our school. But that’s just my opinion and i’m sure there is bullying going on i just can;t see it. I think teachers and or bystanders need to watch out for these kind of things and report it to someone that really can do something about it. Because some teachers (that iv’e heard of) say they will do something, then they never did.

  4. I don’t think that Howell has that big of a bullying problem. i never saw anything bad here and i never saw any physical abuse but i have seen people get into a fight.

  5. i don’t think that Howell dose not have a very big problem with bulling will not that i see it but their could be bully’s what people need to do it take care of one on other cause they go to go to school ever time and it need to be save for people not be scared of people and kids need to tall some one no matter if your scared if you don’t tall someone they will bully you more what teachers need to do is see if someone is sad and talk to them and if they don’t tall them call their parents and get them in to it

  6. I think that there is a bullying problem in Howell high school. Though I think it is a problem I don’t think it is a huge one. People are being bullied and stop coming to school to avoid bullying, but it’s not so bad that Howell is on the news all the time for it. I think the only way to help stop bullying in Howell is to teach people to stand up for their self because getting yelled at by a teacher doesn’t stop a bully. Standing up for your self shows that you are willing to fight back and won’t back down. This is not what a bully wants and is the best chance people have at getting them to stop. Ignoring them never works no matter what any adult says, but when you stand up for your self it should be in an appropriate manner.

  7. I think that there is not a problem of dangerous bullying, but a smaller problem is still there. I think that our school should have something we can do to all get to know each other better. In elementary school, we would have activities, even things like camp helped us all get along and closer through experience. After those activities I noticed that people were more excepting of others. I know that things like that are for little kids, but we can think of something more age appropriate, and still fun(:

  8. I really don’t think that there is that much of a big bullying problem in HHS. Pretty much the people that bully just have a problem with themselves such as family issues and they just try to calm down by bullying. All I have to say to people who get bullied is that they should try to find an adult or a parent to try to help them get rid of the problem

  9. I am against bullying 100%. And having a big problem about it in Howell, all depends on who you are. Since how I am bullied, I am going to say yes, there is a lot of bullying in Howell. I see a lot and I hear a lot of it. But there is no way you can stop bullying completely. You can watch the hallways, classrooms, cafeterias, libraries, etc. You can punish those who bully but, as long as there is so much hatred in the world, we will never be able to end it. We can possibly lower the rates.

  10. At howell to help the problem with bullying we should do a week. Like anti bulling week and just do all these things like activities for acts of bulling and make videos and share everyday and share stories to people to talk about it. Just an idea.

  11. I haven’t seen bullying at Howell High School but there probably is cause it happens at every school. Some ways they could stop it would probably be to have more people watching in the halls. If it gets really worse they could set up cameras.

  12. Well first I’d like to say that we can stop this horrendous practice by perfecting it our tactics on stopping it. I don’t see a whole lot of bullying at school. However I don’t really pay attention that much. I think that some of the name calling considered bullying is the “bully” calling the kids names but not realizing how serious they take it because it might just seem like a joke to the bully. I think the main thing that teachers can do to help prevent the bullying is to just pay attention to what the students are actually saying. I also think that the way students can help is by questioning if they think what was said was really funny for the victim of it too. If it wasn’t then it was probably bullying. So these bystanders just shouldn’t be afraid to tell a staff member or even a parent.

  13. As far as i know, Howell High School does not have a bullying problem. If there is bullying its not like people are getting physically bullied if anything its verbal bullying, but then again bullying is bullying and is a terrible thing. If there is bullying at Howell students should become more aware that everybody is a person and has a family and you have no idea what there life is like so watch yourself. A lot of times people my be joking but some people honestly take things people say to them to heart and keep in mind that if a person has a rough life and you bully them it could lead to them killing themselves and you would be part of the reason… ANYWAYS I don’t think bullying is bad at Howell High School.

  14. Bullying is bad. In our school, bullying doesn’t happen a lot but I’m sure it happens. So it is a small problem in our school these days. It could be worse at the 1012 building but I’m not sure. Students can make bullying end by being nice to everyone. It is almost impossible to stop bullying anywhere because everyone has their differences and there is always one person who doesn’t like someones difference. Most teachers actually don’t know if bullying is present in their classroom.

  15. I think that people in Howell need to be more aware of what they are doing when they make fun of another person. People in this School do bully others and it’s ridiculous. There have been numerous amounts of fights and people talk behind each others backs. Bullying can cause someones mind to go crazy and many people who are bullied commit suicide.

  16. I think we don’t have a huge problem with bullying. I think there is some, but that’s just like any other high school in America. I think we just need to be more aware of what is going on and not sit back and allow it to happen when we see it.

  17. Bullying is a HUGE problem in the school and it’s ridiculous that for all the anti-bullying policies that the school has no one seems to do anything against bullying. I see verbal abuse a lot and even some physical abuse. Also, bullies are not always (but almost) student’s peers. I know some of my teammates bullied by one of my coaches, and even after telling the athletic director she is still coming back next season. Maybe the staff at Howell could actually listen to victims of bullying when they cry out for help. I find that most peer-to-peer bullying occurs in the hallways and more teachers should be out in the halls during passing time.

  18. i don’t think that Howell have a very big problem with bulling. because i don’t hear about it happening in are school and if it was they should go get help to help them out.also people should not just stand there if they see they should go help him/her.

  19. I think that the bullying in HHS isn’t that big of a problem here as much as other places. There might be the name calling or teasing in HHS but its not like anyone has been threatened to the point of where they’re scared of going to school. I think that the staff could be more vigilant when it comes to noticing these things in the halls, but if the students who are the bullies stop then there isn’t really a need for people getting in trouble or teachers watching.

  20. Howell does have kind of a problem with bullying, such as the cross that was burned on that new student’s lawn. Even calling someone a name in a joking tone can be considered bullying. I see bullying everyday, but Howell seems to be kind of light on such a thing. Some of the bullying that goes on does step a lot of boundaries, even for bullies. There is a lot of talking behind people’s backs that goes on though, if you can even consider it bullying. I see a lot of homophobia and a lot of bigots, but they’re usually online or are toned down enough that they’re hard to notice. Shunning occurs every once and a while. Howell can prevent bullying by having teacher’s listen to the students more, having more staff on patrol for bullying, and people stepping in more.

  21. Howell high is not much of a bullying school to me, Where i came from is a place where bullying is always a big problem. Howell doesn’t have any bullying reports ever since i first came here. But if someone try attempting something that can hurt someone, it is the duty for students to make sure the news reaches the teachers ASAP.

  22. I don’t see a lot of bullying in school anymore, though I did used to in middle and elementary school. I don’t know if I’m just missing it or if there’s some going on around me. I think the best way to stop it is to have good friends that would stick up for you no matter what.

  23. As i have been bullied myself, i do not see much bullying at HHS. Obviously, there is some. You would be hard-pressed to find a school where there ISNT. However, this may be due to the level at which i was bullied at my old school, and the amount. To give you an idea of that school, here is a scenario. Someone got punched in the gut at recess. They went up, told the aid, and they “shooed” them away, almost like, “Go away and shut up, i am busy talking.” Lovely school, eh? Overall, HHS doesnt have much bullying, in my eyes.

  24. I don’t think there is a huge problem with bullying at Howell. But it is a problem nation wide. It happens every where and it is basically impossible to stop. No matter where you go there will be mean kids. If you are bullied it actually is hard to tell someone because you don’t want to admit to it. A lot of kids are bullied and no one knows about it. If you do see someone get bullied at least help them out, and be a friend to them.

  25. I think that the bulling level is okay but there is still a little and I believe that a little is better then a lot but it’s not good enough. when their is no bulling in the school then we are set. But that isn’t to likely.

  26. I don’t personally see a lot of bullying, but that doesn’t mean its not a problem. If you turn down a hallway, you will most likely here or see at least one form of bullying. I think the problem with bullying is that people interpret what is perfect from society. But the truth is nothing is perfect, no matter where you go.

  27. I don’t think that Howell has a very big bullying problem. I don’t see any bullying going on at all so I don’t know if anyone is being bullied. Students could help get rid of this problem by telling someone older that can actually do something about it. Staff members could help by punishing the people that are committing the bullying.

  28. I think that we have a small problem of bullying at our school. I mostly just hear gossip and people being called names. The staff can just be more aware of the situation by standing out in the hallway and stuff.

  29. Howell has a big problem with bullying. People don’t realize what hurts people. its upsetting when people get bullied. Many teachers don’t do anything about it. But there is many more bullies in the middle school.

  30. Howell doesn’t have that big of a problem with bullying, but it still goes on. I feel that no matter what there will at least be a little bit of bullying. Other schools have a bigger problem that defiantly need to narrow down the bullying. The way people could narrow it down is stand up to the bullies and other people will too.

  31. I don’t really see any problems with bullying at Howell. if someone else sees it they should help out the student that is getting bullied. If the students don’t want to get involved they should go to a teacher.

  32. I don’t think that Howell has a very big bullying problem. Bullying is a problem and does happen everywhere I don’t think it’s that big of a problem here. To get rid of bullying here people can try to be nicer to each other and not bully others. Teachers could also be watching more for students bullying each other.

  33. It is hard for a person like me who is not bullied to see any bulling problems. however the bulling problem is there in Howell schools. The best way to get get rid of this problem is for kids to learn how to be defensive in speech and reporting the problem to staff. The staff needs to follow up in an manner to make sure conflict does not occur again.

  34. I think bullying is a problem at Howell High School. You can always walk down the hallways and here someone talking about someone or calling them mean names. Teachers and staff care more about the dress code and lunch rules than they do about bullying. When someone tries to report bullying or if they see it, they usually do not do much about it. In Howell, I see more verbal bullying rather than physical bullying.

  35. I think that bulling is not a big problem in Howell. i think that their is more that the faculty could be doing. Bulling is not as big as a problem as it once was.

  36. For me bullying is not a problem because i took up MMA . Anyone that need help with bullying take up MMA that will make people fear you. One fight may happen but after that you will not be in another one. Fighting isn’t always the answer but sometimes it is in some cases.

  37. I don’t think that the problem of bullying is not that bad unlike other schools. I Think that teachers should keep an eye out for students that are victims or they could listen more to some kids conversations to make sure they don’t talk about anyone getting bullied.

  38. I dont think we have a big problem with bullying. I think that everyone needs to help to get rid of bullying. Bullying is a bigger problem in other schools but not so much at howell.

  39. I don’t think that bulling is a big problem at Howell High School. Some people do get picked on, but they have a chance to get help.

  40. I think there is a good amount of bullying at Howell High School, because of all the different groups. The schools could offer money for having people tell whats going on and teachers could watch better in the halls. They need to get the bullying to end.

  41. I don’t think there is really a big problem with bullying here, but there is a little bit obviously. I think that to get rid of it, the victim and the bully need help. It will help everyone feel better and make there be less bullying.

  42. I think bullying is a problem at Howell High School.It may not seem like it because its probably quiet like involving one or two people.It also might happen on social media like facebook or twitter.People can stop it by reporting bullying so staff can take care of it.

  43. Bullying is a thing that I don’t see happen often at all at Howell. It kind of bugs me when teachers talk about it like it’s an awful thing that happens everywhere. I don’t see it. IT is an over exaggeration.

  44. I don’t think that Howell has a very big problem with bullying, but there are some people who talk bad about others and it eventually does go back to that person and makes them feel bad about themselves. Bullying is very unnoticed. If a student or teacher sees, hopefully they will say something and not just stand there and watch it happen.

  45. I know bullying is a problem at Howell High School because, it happens at every school. I have not seen someone get bullied yet but i know it’s happening. To help with the problem of bullying people just need to keep an eye out for it and stop it right then and there. Also students need to not be nervous about reporting bullying. If it is a serious issue they need to report it right away.

  46. bulling is a problem but its not as big as when people give you nasty looks in the hall way that makes me mad.

  47. I don’t really know if Howell has a bullying problem. Most groups of guys mess with each other but don’t bully one another. But I don’t really pay any attention to other people and their problems.

  48. Bullying at Howell High schools is not a big problem but lots of other kids in other schools are constantly being bullied. And people need to try and stop this because it is bad and can lead to lots of violent crime rates or deaths from being pressured.

  49. I know bullying is present here at Howell High School but I don’t hear very much about it. That’s what I think should change. We need to hear more about it so other students and teachers can help out those kids. I think that we also need some signs around the school made by students stating how horrible it is.

  50. I don’t hear of a lot of bullying here at Howell schools. But I know it is a big problem in other areas. The staff should seriously not just say, stop this is wrong. The staff isn’t that serious about this situation. All they do is pull you out in the hall and give you a lunch detention. Which is just sitting against a wall which isn’t doing much to have a life changing impact on the person.

  51. I don’t think it is a big deal at the high school. I think that it could be a problem if we don’t do anything about what is going on.

  52. Bullying is not that big of a problem at Howell High School. I think it does go on, but not too bad. A way to prevent it is if someone sees someone getting bullying, then people have to do something about it. You can’t just let it go. Teachers can help too by promoting a no bullying policy.

  53. Howell High School doesn’t seem to have that big of a bullying problem. The only people that have a bullying problem is the people who don’t have friends. But the way we can fix this is to tell the teachers or just tell the kid to stop.

  54. I do think howell has some bullys. I dont know what we are going to do about this, but we got to do something.

  55. I think that bullying is a problem at Howell High School. Some people may not notice as much as others do. Teachers could help by giving more punishments to the bullies.

  56. i think bullying is a bad problem everywhere just because not everyone sees it does not mean it does not exist. i think teachers should focus more one bullying then all the other things like stacking your chairs at lunch. like if you dont do that you have to sit on the wall but kids get bullied every day and nothing happens……

  57. I think Howell does ‘somewhat’ have a bullying problem. It’s not serious enough that it’s publicize on the news or newspapers all the time, but it’s enough to allow people not to want to come to school, or to allow people to talk in despite of being bullied. I think a way to solve the bullying problems, is to teach students to fight back and engage in a appropriate manner, enough to make a bully to stop their harmful acts.

  58. I don’t think that Howell High School has a very big problem with bullying. Every school is going to get bullies, so i know there is bullying going on at Howell i just don’t see it. I think that students and staff should try and stop it as much as possible when they see it. Make the bully feel stupid. There is nothing wrong with trying to help.

  59. I rarely see bullying at Howell High school. There are just a couple kids who are really mean and big bullies. I don’t think bullying is right at all. I think teachers think it happens way more than it does. I never really see it. I have been bullied and its not fun. The bullies are the people you don’t want to be around.

  60. Howell doesn’t really have a bully problem but there are those times where there is a kid who doesn’t have much friends and a social outcast. those kids get pushed around and called horrible names. the many things that kids and teachers can do do (this is excluding Mr.Moore) the teachers need to stop being lazy and realize that if you tell a kid, “oh don’t worry tell him to not do it again.” like really you do that you will get hit even harder or called even more horrible names than before.

  61. I don’t see many kids get bullied here at school. But i do think bullying is a big problem in our society. It seems sad to see someone make others feel bad, sometimes bullies take it to far then eventually the bully victims commit suicide. The reason i think people bully is because they are hiding something and use hate to get over it.

  62. Howell doesn’t have a huge bullying issue, but there are small incidents. Every school has a bully, and when we see someone getting bullied, we shouldn’t just watch it happen. We should tell a teacher and stand up for the little guy that can’t defend himself or herself. So if there is any bullying going on, others can help and make our school a better place.

  63. I don’t think that Howell has a big bully problem. I do think it happens, but I just don’t always see it. I think that we have a lot of things hear that help prevent bullying, because he have teachers in the hallway all the time.

  64. I think bullying is a huge deal, everywhere. No matter what anyone says. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Until it has happened to you, you have no idea how hard it is to just “ask someone for help”. Those who say it isn’t a big deal, have no clue on how it feels to actually be bullied. To be in a school of hundreds of students, and feel completely alone. When someone trusts you enough to tell you how they’ve been bullied, it is now in your hands to help. They didn’t tell you for no reason. Sticking up for someone whether you know them or not is far better than just watching. Not knowing someone is not an acceptable excuse for not sticking up for them. Bullying is never okay, no matter what race, religion, sexuality, or where you’re from. We come to school to learn and create a better future, it should not be something students fear.

  65. I honestly don’t see much bullying in our school. There might be bullying but I never see any. If someone bullied me, I would take action on my own, wether it be violently , physicaly or verbally.

  66. I don’t think that bullying is a big problem at Howell High School. I never really see anyone bullying another person. But if staff or students do see bullying they should stand up for the kid getting picked on and make sure that it never happens again.

  67. I don’t think that there is a huge problem with bullying, but it still happens. If you see someone getting bullied i think that you should say something to stop it instead of watching someone get bullied. I don’t think that the staff pays any attention to students who are getting bullied, but they should.

  68. I don’t really see bullying at all in Howell some kids might say stuff to each other one time but I don’t see it consistently. If we did have a lot of bulling I would tell someone and the staff would crack down and stop it. I hope this continues and I see no bullying at Howell.

  69. Howell doesn’t really have that much of a bullying problem at all. I’ve only seen people laughing at somebody else. I never saw anybody physically harming anybody else. If there was a bullying problem, I think they should do shows/programs like mtv did.

  70. I don’t think bullying is a big problem at Howell High School. Although, people do bully others. I don’t think it is very noticed around school. Teachers and staff should make it a bigger issue top stop it.

  71. I honestly think that howell dosent have that big of a bullying problem like i never really seen any thing that bad at howell and not any physical abuse i have not ever seen any body get into a fight with the other person not wanting to once at howell

  72. you cant really get read of it. but you can get people to stand up for the kids and help. they should not get into fights with them. it dos not work out in your fever.

  73. Howell High School doesn’t have that big of a problem with bullying. Trust me, I went to Byron and I got bullied for being to short. Still, we should tell someone if someone is bullying you or someone else.

  74. I do not think bullying is a big problem is Howell. I think there is a lot of other problems in Howell, but I wouldn’t say bullying is one. There are defiantly people who get bullied, and there are probably more then we think, but we just don’t notice.

  75. I don’t think that there is a big problem with bullying here at Howell high school. I do see some bullying going around, but its not so much of physical abuse, its more of verbal abuse. I really don’t think that staff can do much to stop bullying, there will always be some bullying

  76. I feel bullying is a pretty big problem even if its just calling names it can really hurt people. If one of your friends are getting bullied you should try to break it up or stop it. If it gets serious get and adult to help. If a teacher sees it they should intervene and not just leave the victim to fend for themselves.

  77. I think bullying isn’t very big in Howell because we were taught at a very young age to not make fun of people. I think that parents should talk to their kids about bullying and how it can be very hurtful. I also think that people who are being bullied should speak up.

  78. I think that there isn’t much of a bullying problem at Howell high school. But if you are being bullied report it and it will stop. Something aren’t acully bullying that is the assumption by staff because they don’t know the circumstance but that is a sing to show they are looking for bully’s and it wont take place here.

  79. i don’t think that there is that much bullying in Howell high school but im sure that some people do get bullied though.

  80. Howell doesn’t have that big a problem with bulling, there is some but not as much as there was a year ago. All that i see is fighting and arguing with people. But i don’t see any bulling.

  81. Bullying is a small problem at Howell High School. A lot of people get bullied and keep it to themselves and i can build up. I think the best way to stop bullying is to act out against it. If you are being bullied you should tell and adult you trust. Teachers can also make an impact on stopping bullying by paying closer attention or just talking to their students.

  82. bullying isn’t a big problem in Howell, maybe in other places it is but not are schools. so yeah..lol

  83. I don’t really see any problems with bullying at Howell High, but i’m sure there is some bullying going on. But students and staff can control it by if they see it to do something and also teach how bullying can have a big affect on someones life.

  84. I do not think that bullying is a big problem in Howell. Teachers can just pay attention, and students can just respect each other. Bullying is wrong.

  85. Although bullying isn’t a huge problem here at Howell High School, you do see it every so often even though most of it is just verbal bullying. Once every so often you see a fight or hear of a fight that is about to happen but usually the word gets out so it is prevented. Students and staff can just look out for this kind of behavior so if they do see it try and stop it.

  86. There are plenty of things students and teachers can do to get rid of bullying. Students can tell their teachers and parents that they are being bullied for one thing. Also the school can have more anti-bullying assemblies.

  87. Bullying is not a problem in Howell high school. When ever friends are fighting its not to hurt the other person they are just playing around like friends do.

  88. I don’t think its too big of a problem but its definately there. But it’s high school and what high school doesn’t have bullying.

  89. I feel that Howell High school has bullying just like every other school. I just don’t think that its as serious here as in other schools. I may be wrong though because some people just don’t tell anybody or show that there is something wrong.

  90. I think that Howell high school has some bulling. Most people just watch this go on, and many teachers try to help but sometimes it doesn’t work.

  91. bulling is not really a problem at the high school but there probably is some people that are being bullied.

  92. here is not very big but in other places i would say a big problem.to the victims i would say befriend the bully s say what they want to hear even if you don’t want to only pretend to. but please don’t commit suicide you can never run away like a cowered always .

  93. There is a problem with bullying in our school, people just don’t notice. Students can act upon bullying as soon as they see it and report it to someone. Teachers can have monitors watching students or they could make rules about bullying. If the rule is broken, the students should face consequences for their actions.

  94. I don’t think that bullying is that big of a deal here at Howell High School. I have never really noticed it so I guess that we’re fine.

  95. Bullying is a big problem hear, but there is really nothing we can do about. Only because that there are to many people who get picked on each day and then they have the feeling that they need to pick on someone and on and on. This is the way the world works it’s not just high schools and jobs its every where. People should feel bad for others and help them but we can’t help everyone in the whole world.

  96. Howell doesn’t have a very big problem with bulling. I think in the freshman campus there is less because most people know each other because it’s all just freshman. I also think no one feels less than one another. If there is bullying going on I think the teachers need to be able to pick it out and keep an eye on those people and the bullies should have to be escorted to and from classes so it won’t happen in school and most likely not out of school because the bully generally doesn’t hang out with the person they bully.

  97. I think that every school has a bullying problem, it’s just that in some schools it is more evident than others. At Howell High School, bullying is a problem but most people don’t see it. Most of the bullying isn’t physical, there are a few fights once in a while, but for the most part, it’s verbal bullying. High school kids always make fun of each other, which is a form of bullying.

  98. I think bulling is a problem at Howell. Most of the people being bullied don’t report the bullies. Most of the time it is people making fun of others and calling them names. A lot of people wont do anything about it and just laugh. I you see someone being bullied you need to tell a teacher right away so it can stop.

  99. I don’t think Howell High School has a huge problem with bullying, but its evidently there. I’m sure we’ve all witnessed it at one point, and what do we all do, just look past it. Which isn’t right, and of course we all say we’d help someone if they were being bullied in front of us, but when the time has come, most of us don’t do the right thing. Bullying will always be there, it’s going to be a problem at every school, people have different takes on it. Its up to us to see it.

  100. at our school we truley have silent bully victums. Most people don’t reconize it they do bullying in the form of excluding, rumors, and constant name calling. Name calling is the worst, most people in our genration are blind to it. Its horrible that people get judged based on how they look. I’ve never been bullied but i do have friends that have been

  101. Bullying is not bad here at Howell. I think its more that kids like to joke around and they go to far sometimes.

  102. Howell doesn’t have to big of a bulling problem, as far as I see it. I haven’t really seen any bulling lately, the last time I saw it was in middle school. But there may be cyber bulling that people don’t see. So maybe that is a problem but I don’t really know.I think that if a student or a teacher sees someone being bullied than they should stop it or tell someone.

  103. I don’t really see much of a bulling problem at our school but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t bulling going on. I will be very surprised if there is a high school out there that doesn’t have bullies. I think that there will always be bullies and we just need to learn to not let them bother us.

  104. Bullying is everywhere and people just do not want to hear it or see it. People call others names and others talk behind people’s backs. Things like this happen all the time and usually it is between friends who think it is a joke when the person who is being insulted thinks that it is funny as well. I do not like bullying at all. MAKE IT STOP!

  105. Howell has a problem with bullies. It’s a normal-sized problem, because there are, and always will be some bullies everywhere. Many people would claim Howell doesn’t have a problem. The problem is always there, but many people turn their heads and pretend it isn’t happening

  106. We don’t have the biggest bullying but I have seen it. I think that the type of bullying in our school is more of calling people names. There hasn’t been that many fights and I haven’t seen people get pushed our tripped. And I don’t think that there’s been much cyber bullying.

  107. Howell has a bullying problem, its just people don’t see it anymore because it is all online. Thy make fun of people online because they wont get caught. Also they need that little bit of power over those people because if someone bully’s you that usually means that they are intimidated by you or how you act. If bully’s could see what they do to the people they bully, i think that they would never do it again because it gives you the worst feeling in the entire world. i would know because i get bullied a lot.

  108. I don’t think that bullying is a big problem in our school. Bullying in our school really isnt like hurting the person and threatening them its just little things like names and mostly joking around.

  109. I think bullying is a problem in HHS but I think its more of hurting people emotionally and embarrassing them. Its not always physical so people don’t notice or don’t know about it. There are many ways of bullying, but its how someone sees it

  110. Howell doesn’t have as big of a bullying problem as other schools but occasionally I will see people picking on someone else. You are prone to bullying if you are annoying. Some students don’t do anything because they think they deserve it. Teachers and students can help stop bullying by taking action. Teachers might look at it as two friends teasing each other. Students look at it as something to add excitement to a boring day.

  111. I think that the bullying problem at Howell High School is bad because people are afraid to take a stand for someone else that’s being picked on because of how they look, dress, act, etc. Kids that go to this school can be very cruel and not care for anyone’s feelings except for there own. Now, not all kids that go here are like that but most of them don’t take a stand for others. We could take a stand by sticking up for the kids that get picked on and the teachers could be on the look out more often. Kids that get bullied could come forward and say that their being bullied regardless of what other kids say about them for being a snitch or something like that, they would be taking a stand for themselves and might even convince others to come forward too.

  112. well i think that if the students did more for there fend and there problems there would be none at all but at Howell i don’t think that there is a big problem here as o there schools

  113. I don’t think bullying at Howell is a bug problem, that people notice anyways. There are defiantly people who get bullied. The thing is those kids don’t say anything about it. They’re most likely scared to tell someone. I think teachers should look for it more, and notice the little things that are happening around. But bullying will always be a problem, everywhere. But I think when teachers find out and stuff, the kids aren’t getting the right punishment.

  114. I think bullying is a problem but i have never been bullied. It could be happening but i never see it. If people are being bullied at Howell High school and if other people do see it they should get an adult or stand up for the kid being bullied. This isn’t jail, we don’t need to be mean to each other.

  115. I don’t there is a lot of bullying in Howell High School but I am not everywhere at once so they maybe things that I can’t see. I wish that the kids that ended there lives due to bullying could see what they are almost stopping because I may be a problem in a lot of schools.

  116. Bullying is a big problem in Howell with some people, the people usually that don’t stick up for themselves, or can’t. There is a lot of “teasing” from friends to other friends. A lot of the people bullying are people that get humor out of it and have their own posse.

  117. Personally I don’t see many kids get bullied at Howell. In are school people don’t really see people getting bullied and i think they should be more cautious of it. If some one was getting bullied they should ask for some help.

  118. I don’t really see bullying in High School, I see it more in middle school. I think bullies need to see what they are doing and set into the kids shoes that they are bullying and see how they feel. Nobody deserves to be bullied like nobody deserves to see awful things that are happening in there life.

  119. I don’t think that bullying is a major problem at are school. Some people do get bullied but i think it is a lot less at are school. If kids are getting bullied they schould tell a teacher or a good friend that can help them with it.

  120. I don’t think that bullying is a problem at Howell High School. I haven’t really see anyone get bullied and I haven’t really heard much about it. I think that it really depends on who you hang out with and who you talk to on whether or not you experience incidents where people have gotten bullied. I know that there is bullying going on whether I realize it or not but I think that the teachers could help by paying more attention to what the students are talking about in class.

  121. I personally haven’t seen too much bullying at Howell High School. I think it’s bigger of a problem in other areas. The only time I’ve seen something that can actually count as bullying in Howell is through Facebook.

  122. Howell doesn’t have much of a bulling problem. There is some verbal bulling but most of the time its just friends joking around with each other. I think that no matter what people do its not gonna stop bulling.

  123. I don’t think that Howell has a big problem with bullying. Almost all the time what people think is bullying is kids messing around with their friends. And i think that if people are just assuming that kids are being bullied with out any proof than those people are just dumb. Now there are some kids that are bullying other kids but the ones who are being bullied should just stand up for themselves and not take any crap from other people picking on them.

  124. Howell high school does have bullying problems every school does. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean its not happening. If you see someone getting bullied or anything stand up for them or tell someone don’t just stand there and watch someone get physically hurt or emotionally hurt. It’s not right.

  125. There is kind of a lot of bullying at Howell High School Even though it isn’t always noticeable, it happens. Sometimes it is just playing around, but that can still hurt kids feelings and sometimes they take it seriously and not as a joke. You have to be careful with what you say because even if it was only meant as a joke, it can be taken seriously and can hurt people.

  126. Howell does not have much bullying. I think it has been lowering, but i think there are still many ways we can end it. We can look more and hire more staff for lookout, and we can also get kids to speak up.

    #ЯƎVLUTIN

  127. Howell High doesn’t have a huge bullying problem. But there is some bullying because no matter where you go, there will always be someone that does it. I think that if we had kids stand up for themselves when they were being bullied or someone stepped in it would inspire others to help and it would eventually stop the situation.

  128. Bullying in Howell isn’t very big. There’s cyber-bullying but that’s mostly outside of school. I mean there might be bullying here but i guess nobody really wants to speak up about it and people don’t really care. But yes there is a problem with bullying.

  129. Howell doesn’t have a big issue with bullying right now. Not many kids at Howell High School get bullied. I don’t know why this is. I think that most students who go to Howell schools know that it isn’t right to bully and that if they do hurt someone in any way they will get in trouble for it eventually. The only thing the students could do to get better and not start bullying is to be nice to everyone they talk to even if they don’t like them. The teachers could keep an eye out in case bullying does end up happening.

  130. I don’t think bullying is a huge issue at howell high school. I don’t see it very often. I’m sure it happens to a point because it happens everywhere. Students and staff can just be aware that it’s happening and be supportive to certain students.

  131. I think that there is a lot of bullying here. i see people getting bullied all of the time. It is normally with the kids that think they are cool but really nobody likes them.

  132. Howell doesnt have a big problem, at least a lot of us dont see it happening. Im sure it does because bullying happens no matter what

  133. Bullying has become a big problem at schools in the U.S. lately. Many schools have tried new policies on it and most of them haven’t worked. This makes a lot of kids uncomfortable at school, no one needs to be afraid to come to school everyday. I think we should all try harder to prevent bullying from happening in our schools, before it gets any worse in the coming years.

  134. I think bullying is not a big problem but still a problem at Howell High School. I don’t see a lot of bullying but I see some of it and I also hear about some of it. I think that students and teachers can help by caring more. I also think if a student hears or sees someone being bullied they should stand up for the person.

  135. There really isn’t a huge bullying problem here in Howell. However anybody that does bully has problems of there own and take their anger out upon the innocent person/people being bullied. I think that students and staff can try to figure out why people are bullying and see if they can resolve it or at least help.

  136. We don’t really have any bullying just very judgmental people. If there was bullying in pretty sure that anyone who saw it would go and stop it because we all know better. If a teacher does notice something, they should stop it unlike some teachers who just walk away.

  137. I don’t think that there is a very big problem in Howell High School. If there is i don’t hear a lot about it. If bullying is going on though, you should report it right away or talk to an adult about it. I also think that teachers should be paying more attention to whats going on and who’s getting bullied to try to stop it from going on.

  138. From what I notice there isn’t a big problem of bullying. But wherever you are or go there will be a bully. Just because I don’t notice bullying doesn’t mean its not a big problem. I don’t really know what staff could do to stop it. Because even if they get in trouble they might continue to bully.

  139. Bullying isn’t too big of a problem at Howell High school. People here get bullied everyday, but it’s not too mean of bullying. People just brush it off, and go on with their day. They try and not make a big deal out of it. Cause you just have to keep going.

  140. Howell really doesn’t have a very big problem with bullying. Obviously there is some bullying but not as much as you would think. I have seen some but not much. There is no way we can completely stop bullying at a high school but we can help it a lot by getting teachers to watch more closely for bullying.

  141. We need to start a pole that asks how many students get bullied. Then create ways that will stop it from happening by find those who do bully.

  142. Howell really doesn’t have a bullying problem. Rarely people get bullied here that people see. Students could be nicer to other students but really it isn’t a big problem here. Teacher just have to watch out for more people bullying and if they catch them, punish them.

  143. In Howell, I haven’t seen that much bullying. We all get along with everyone. Everyone’s different but we all pretty much accept each other.

  144. i think that howell is a pretty good school most people are nice
    but there are them bucket dumper but we really need more bucketfillers.

  145. Howell doesn’t have that big of a bullying problem. There are some people who bully in Howell. They like to feel bigger and better than all the kids they pick on, but it just make them look weak and embarrassing.

  146. People always say that bullying in Howell isn’t a big deal. They don’t see whats going on, that’s why they say that. There will always be bullying issues. They might not be as big as some other places but it’s still there. I think whenever somebody sees someone being bullied the least they could do is tell a teacher.

  147. Howell High School doesn’t have a problem with bullying. There are people that give each other crap but they know it’s a joke. Students and staff can get rid of the small percentage of kids being bullied by teaching the kids they have for classes that being nice really does matter.

  148. I do not think Howell has a problem with bullying. Bullying can be prevented by having the students do more activities together to make them feel more united and care for each other.

  149. Bulling inst as bad as it use to be its more people saying thing then physical bullying. They could do more by hiring more people, or have more security cameras.

  150. who does this jake lupini kid think he is ;(

  151. I don’t think that there is some bullying epidemic going on. I don’t think that people realize that bullying is a natural function. Trying to stop bullying altogether is foolish. people need to stop overreacting. EVERYONE HAS BULLIED SOMEONE. stand up for yourself. don’t just stand around and wait to be a victim!

    • Sometimes people can’t stand up for themselves because sometimes it’s more than one person bullying at the same time and they’re getting ganged up on. So, even if you do try and stick up for yourself they are still going to attack you verbally.

  152. Personally, I don’t see a lot of bullying at Howell High School but I’m sure it happens. I don’t think there is one simple way to stop bullying but for starters I think teachers and adults should encourage kids who do get bullied to speak up about it. Also, kids who stand up to bullies should be rewarded while bullies should be punished. :DDDD

  153. I don’t think bullying is a huge problem in high school. But in middle schools i think bullying is more of a problem. I think no matter what staff or students do to prevent bullying, its still going to happen.

  154. No, I do not think that there is a major problem with bullying just a minor one. And i think that there are a few bully’s in this school and i think it is time people grow up and stop calling each other names and saying hurtful things we are 14-15 years old not 9 . I think bully’s have problems in there personal life that they think they have the right to take it out on other people and i don’t think they should do that because all they are doing is trying to make themself’s feel better and why they are doing that they are hurting other people and make them not want to come to school. I think people that bully in this school are pathetic because they just want to make other people laugh and make one person hurt. And i just don’t think that it is right for them to do that. If they have a problem they should go and see a Councillor or go to a anger managment class.

  155. Specific instances that are classified as “bullying” shouldn’t exist because they are redundant. An example of said instances is an insult, as it is mere expression, and is not a threat since there are no claims made to objectify any coarse of action. However, perpetuation of insults or traumatizing insults do in fact actualize physiological anomalies, and should be considered “bullying” because they objectify mental affliction.

  156. I don’t think there is a lot of bullying at Howell High school but i know that it still happens. I think if you see any kids getting bullied that you should go tell a adult about it or go say something to that person. Not just stand there and laugh about it.

  157. Bullying doesn’t seem to happen all to often in Howell. This is a pretty peaceful school in my opinion. I haven’t seen any form of bullying in Howell for a long time.

  158. bullying isn’t the most awful problem here, but it dose happen every single day sometimes in minor ways and sometimes in awful ways. we need to start standing up for each other we cant be every man/woman for them self, we need to stick up for each other even when it seems like it’s none of your business. the only way bullying will stop is if we show the bullied how to stand up for themselves and bystanders to cut in and help the bullied person by standing up to the bully with the victim. it should be common seance to help others but we are scared sometimes and that’s when students need to get adults. teachers should step in and punish the bully before it gets to far and pay attention to kids who may be a bully or bullied.

  159. A medium kind of a problem considering there isn’t any other problems in the school. It shouldn’t be a big problem since that is the only actual thing to worry about.
    They can start by having the teachers pay attention or actually look around and see whats happening.

  160. I don’t think its a huge problem at Howell. I think it isn’t because Howell has done lots of things to stop it. But i think that if the person is getting bullied then he should tell an adult or if someone sees it then they should tell someone too.

  161. I don’t think bullying in Howell is as severe as other places, but it still happens. Kids think they have the right to judge people based upon their looks, grades, or behavior, and they don’t. I think more people need to stand up for the people being bullied. Many kids see it happen, but don’t do anything about it. Some kids think it’s “cool” which it isn’t, but more people need to stick up for others. Usually when someones friend does it, they don’t have enough courage to say something since it is their friend saying it. But usually that is when it happens the most, and even if it is your friend, you should still say something. I don’t think teachers can do much more, because sometimes they don’t know it’s happening. I think it is more of the students job to stick up for other students or tell a teacher.

  162. I do think there is somewhat of a problem. But not near as much as middle school. You’ve grown up just a bit, & it’s more of drama. But i do see bullying because other kids can’t get the fact that other people are different and not like them or they wear different clothes than you. Really? You need to make a rude comment because that’s what they wear? I hear about a lot of drama. Almost every school will have some sort of bullying.

  163. I haven’t seen any bullying yet and people that do bully that means they are just trying to spread their issues that they have and take them out on other people

  164. I don’t think we have a big problem with bullying at our school. I’m sure that people here do get made fun of and picked on but it happens in every school. There are bully’s everywhere and I think there’s at least one in every school, but I don’t think it is a big problem at our school unlike other schools. I think staff and students could stop it if they see it occur. If you stand up for people, others have more respect for you, and you know that you did the right thing by stopping someone getting bullied.

  165. I don’t think that bulling is a big problem at Howell. Although it still probably happens. I don’t see bulling happening a lot at school. The only thing is that friends might make fun of each other to be funny, but not to be mean. I believe that for the kid who are being bullied should tell an adult to get the bulling to stop completely.

  166. I have not gone to Howell for very long, but it seems relatively good. I haven’t seen nearly as much bullying here as I’ve seen at other places. This is my first year though, so I can’t really say much on the matter.

  167. there is alot of bullying in hhs one main person is
    jl12504@howellstudents.com and hes very mean to me feel free to msg him to stop

  168. I honestly think that we don’t have a big problem with bulling at Howell High School. There is no possible way you can get rid of bulling. you can almost stop it, but not completely. We really don’t have a diverse high school, maybe 5% of our school is a different race so that eliminates a lot of the racial bulling. but it is a problem if even one person bullies another person

  169. There isn’t a lot of bullying in Howell. Out of all of the bullying though. All of what there is, it should stop.

  170. I think bullying is a very big problem at Howell High school. The bullying may not be physical, but there is, cyber bullying. Also, people make fun of people, for example, for there hair style, the type of clothes they wear, that type of music they listen to, what they look like, ect. I think students should think before they say something, spread a rumor, or make fun of someone. Staff should obviously watch for theses types of things that go on in students daily lives.

  171. The bullying at Howell high school isn’t that big i would say. I rarely see people bullying other kids… the only time i ever see bullying it is friends giving other friends a hard time for something, trying to be funny. the staff at Howell could let students be aware of the long term effects of bullying.

  172. To be honest, I have to disagree with those who say there is not a bully problem at Howell. Although Howell may not have a big problem with it, there is still some going on. I have heard things said to people, and people have said someones said hurtful things to them, or behind their back. People do not understand that people may act like it doesn’t hurt them, but when everyone else turns away they are torn. Even by the slightest thing said. Everyone handles things differently. However, I think us as students could stop this and accept everyone. No one is the same and everyone is a different individual. Individuality is a big target for bullying and is what many people get bullied for. So if we all can accept people for who they are things would be a lot different.

  173. Howell doesn’t have all that much bullying. There was a few girls who committed suicide from being bullied a few years back, but it is not a regular thing. Bullying happens all over, but in Howell the bullying is not all that bad compared to other places. I think we can slim the bullying numbers down but i don’t think that we can get rid of it, i think that it will be one of those things that no one can get rid of.

  174. Bullying is a problem at our school, but not a lot of people see it happening because it can be little things that someone does, or it happens when other people aren’t around. People will do something and then say they’re “Just kidding” or “They weren’t being serious.” And teachers will hear this and try not to pay attention to it or think of it as not a bug deal, when what the person did or said could have really hurt the other person. I think the teachers need to talk to both students about it of they see it happening because even the little things that people do to one another add up and become a bigger problem then what you might think.

  175. How big of a problem is bullying at Howell High School? I don’t see it as often as people say they do. I do belive that people should be able to stand up for themselves, But sometimes they need a hand.
    What can students and staff do to get rid of this horrendous practice at Howell High School? Dont sit around and watch, Stand up and do something about it. Dont talk about it when your not doing anything about it. And dont contribute.

  176. There is no school that doesn’t have a bullying problem. It’s just that some schools deal with it differently and have different forms of it. Teachers don’t really notice what goes on, and the students should stick up for others when they see it happening.

  177. I really don’t think bullying is, if not any, much of a problem at our school. I have yet to see someone get bullied. I guess now, no one really cares about it, which is a great thing!

  178. bullying at the high school is a problem to start with. me personaly i don’t notice any bullying at our school but i do see friends just getting pushed around as a joke but i don’t see a lot of real fighting though

  179. i have never really seen or heard about any bullying in Howell i do know it happens but not like they show in movies now a days its mostly online.

    Like I said that it doesn’t happen much in Howell but they could get more involved and talk to students daily or weekly just to make a difference.

  180. How big of a problem is bullying at Howell High School?
    It’s not that bad, I do see it sometimes and yell at people.
    What can students and staff do to get rid of this horrendous practice at Howell High School? Just don’t ignore it. When you see someone getting bullied stand up for them regardless if you don’t like them or don’t know them because nobody deserves to have low self worth because of some ignorant bully that’s just trying to look cool in front of his friends.

  181. I haven’t seen bullying at Howell public schools.But I do think a lot goes on on the internet like Facebook. i don’t understand why people feel the need to bully. i really don’t think there is anything we can do to prevent bullying. Teaching kids about it obviously isn’t doing anything.

  182. There isn’t a lot of bullying in Howell. Out of all of the aq+

  183. Bullying happens at Howell high school. It isn’t a huge problem, but its a big one. If one kid is getting bullied then there is something wrong. I think it is because of the stress on kids these days. We are so stressed from life and school that we tend to take it out on others

  184. I haven’t noticed people bullying each other. I think that are biggest issue though is gossiping but that is about it.

  185. I dont think Howell has a serious problem with bullying. I think most people have grown up and know that bullying is not a cool thing to do. But if a student see’s someone being bullying, they should speak up or tell an adult.

  186. I dont think that bullying is a problem in Howell High school/ Freshmen campus. Yeah bullying happens but how can any one fix it if you dont stand up for your self and say something about it. Yeah ive been bullied and what did I do. I acted like it never happened but its still in the back of my head at the same time. I will never be able to get over some of the things people have said but what i can do is when i see it stand up for them. The last thing i want to happen is to have someone feel horrible about them self’s when i know i can do something about it.

    • the first step to not having people being bullied is to stand up to them.

    • I agree with you when you said bullying isn’t a big problem at Howell High school. I also think that bully victims do need to stand up for themselves or they will get walked over.

  187. At Howell high school, there aren’t many stereotypical bullying cases where kids are threatened with violence or anything like that. But everyday I see the same kids get made fun behind their back and right to their face. And the people bullying them aren’t “bad kids”, but they just don’t seem to understand that what there doing really does hurt that person emotionally after a while and lowers their self esteem. It is far better than it was a few years ago though but by all means, there is still room for improvement.

  188. I don’t think Howell has a big bullying problem. People here seem to get along just fine. No one here really cares what you do. It’s your business not anyone elses.

  189. Bulling is not a big problem in Howell schools. I think the teachers do a pretty good job of controlling the bulling. Kids are going to be kids and sometimes kids are mean . You can not do a lot about it.

  190. I don’t think Howell has a huge widespread bullying problem, but I’m sure there are some situations that everyone just doesn’t know about. To get rid of bullying students and staff alike need to speak up when they witness it and get help. No one should feel its okay just to stand by and watch it happen, everyone should know to tell someone so that the bully can be punished. I think students also need to remember what they’re looking for. I think sometimes we forget that bullying isn’t always just flat out violence or verbal abuse and that it can come in different forms.

  191. There are many instances of bullying at Howell High School. However, there’s plenty of bullying in every school anywhere. It’s not how much bullying there is, it’s how the perpetrators are punished for it. If staff members wave away reports of bullying, then they’re saying that it’s okay to bully. I’ve seen many teachers under-react to bullying, and that’s what we need to change.

  192. i think that Howell Schools has a bullying problem, but every school has some form of bullying in it. Bullying could be stopped by just leaving other people alone and not bothering them. I don’t think that the staff can do much because there are many different forms of bullying and they all don’t take place in school, the teachers can only do so much.

  193. I dont think that bullying is a big deal at HHS. I never see people bullying people or getting bullied. I think that if it does happen, then you should stop it, or tell an adult about it to make it stop. I think people need to realize the effect bullying has on people.

  194. Bullying is not really present in Howell high school. We can keep enforcing it and more steps should be taken to keep the school bully free. Also kids should be able to defend themselves, not only physically but the kids cant just be weak and back down, they have to stand up.

  195. bullying isn’t that bad in our school there is a little bit here and there but not much is going on. i see people with there friends they call each other names but most of the time they are just joking. i think we could have less bullying by have a couple anti-bullying assembles

  196. I dont think it is a huge problem in Howell. It is still present but it inst an out of control amount. I think teachers could be more present in the halls and listen in to what kids are saying to one another.

  197. I don’t think that Howell High School has a really big bullying problem. I have yet to see much of it and the stuff I have seen is on Facebook and even then it’s very little. If there was bullying Howell, I’m pretty sure students would help the person getting bullied and stuff. Plus teachers would stop it most likely.

  198. howell has a big problem with bulling you can go get a teacher if you are getting bullied

  199. I think Howell High School does have bullying but not a big problem. I think there are other schools around us and around the world that have a worse problem. People that bully do it for the power and for there own self-confidence. If there are people that get bullied they need to tell somebody, a teacher, parent, coach, or some other responsible adult.

  200. Howell doesn’t have a big problem with bullying and if there is a problem I never see it. I can’t think of a way to stop bullying because there is already a small amount of bullies that it is almost impossible to see. You can’t stop bullying a 100% butt you can cut it down and that is what Howell has done.

  201. The bullying problem at Howell high school is not very big. There is not a big problem but there is still some bullying that goes on. If you do see bullying going on you should tell a teacher or an adult.

  202. No, Howell doesn’t have a problem with bullying. We have all been informed and taught about the issue and have strict rules which contributes to the reasoning why bullying isn’t a problem. Bullying isn’t completely gone and I think people know that but we are close to being a bullyfree area. I think that’s a good thing because it makes us feel safe when we come to school and that’s important.

  203. i haven’t seen a lot of bullying at Howell high school. at my middle school there was more bullying than i see at Howell high school.

  204. Bullying isn’t a huge problem here at Howell High School. You do see it every so often although most of it is just verbal bullying. Once every so often you see a fight or hear of a fight that is about to happen but usually the word gets out so it is prevented. Students and staff can just look out for this horrendous behavior so if they do see it try and stop it.

  205. Bullying isn’t that big of a problem in Howell but it still is present. When people are bully it usually has to do with some insecurity they have. I think Karma will take care of them but if students see it they should step in right away. If they don’t want to I can understand but go get help.

  206. yes there is alot of bullying at this highschool especially from a kid jake lupini i thing this can be solved by suspending him

  207. Bullying is a pretty big thing at Howell High School. I see a lot of kids being bullied every single day. I think we need to have more Anti-Bullying Assemblies per year, and we need to be educated on bullying more, or else students will never know the harm of it.

  208. I think bullying is a huge problem at Howell schools, just not many people see it. Cyberbullying is more common here, since almost everyone has a Facebook, twitter, etc. I think students could try to prevent bullying more if they see it, and teachers could also do the same.

  209. Q-) How big of a problem is bullying at Howell High School?

    What can students and staff do to get rid of this horrendous practice at Howell High School?

    A-) The problem isn’t that big in Howell High School. They can be more open and not be afraid about being hurt by others. Teachers can be more strict about their policies and they can pay more attention to the conversations going around them. Students can stop being a cyber bully because that is a more cowardly way of bullying someone because they have the protection of having a hidden identity.

  210. Their really isn’t a problem with bullying in high school because no one cares if u have the latest fashion of clothes or the latest touch screen phone. Everyone usually gets along fine. The people who do bully are just bullies who have no friends or acts like that in front of their friends trying to show off. But the lower grades tend to have more bullies because kids act like they own the school because they are in middle school or they are the highest grade in middle school.

  211. I don’t think bullying is a huge problem at Howell. Bullying is everywhere and is a huge problem in the US, but I have yet to see it in Howell. Just because you haven’t seen it doesn’t mean it not there or a problem. The biggest step to getting rid of bullying is to find it.

  212. Howell High School doesn’t have a big problem with bullying. The students and staff can tell the bully that they need to stop and try to stop it, but there’s really not much they can do to stop it.

  213. I do believe Howell has a problem with bullying, but not huge. I do think that teachers and staff can help stop and prevent bullying but to an extent that it wouldn’t be noticed anymore. If teachers or staff see bullying they should crack down on it immediately and that would help. Otherwise in the hallways and at lunch, you can’t really stop it because you don’t see it.

  214. I don’t think that bullying is that big of a problem here. You don’t really hear anything about it anymore and I never hear anyone teasing other people unless it’s with their friends and they’re having fun. I think that maybe staff members shouldn’t really bully their students and say stuff like they’re going to punch them in the face or something. Bullying isn’t that big of a problem but it still is happening. I think think most of the bullying in high school is over the internet and over Facebook and stuff like that.

  215. I’m not going to point any fingers, but I know for a fact a handful of people who have, and will post something about “bullying not being a problem” are currently, majorly or minorly, involved in some practice of bullying. It angers me to see people with the arrogance to say this is a bully free school. I see it many times everyday, but it always happens behind the teachers, where they can’t open their eyes, and brave up to see what is actually going on.

  216. I think bullying is a big problem at HHS people get bulled all the time for being different and they are who they are, there not dumb or stupid just different and people need to learn that.

  217. I don’t think Howell has a big bully problem. It there is then it isn’t being noticed. If other student and people just get up and say something then it can have a huge impact. When someone calls another person out on what they are doing they usually stop because they don’t know what else to do. The biggest problem why adults don’t notice it is because they don’t know it’s happening. If you get up and say something about it and tell someone it can be easily stopped.

  218. I don’t think there is a big problem of bullying at Howell. I think there is some name calling and verbal bullying but it seems to be less. I think that students should just continue to be kind to everyone and not judge others and stick up for them if you see victims of bullying.

    • Yes I agree! There is rarely any fights but there is some verbal bullying! If teachers or students see it, they need to stop this nonsense!

  219. I don’t think that High School has as big of a bullying problem as the middle schools do. In middle school you actually see it sitting in class or walking down the hallway, but in high school I’ve only heard about it and not actually seen it. I think teachers need to be more attentive and watch what’s going on, because alot of the time, I think they aren’t aware of the situation or, if they see it happening they turn their heads the other way.

  220. I don’t think bullying affects a large part of the students in Howell, but still things could be done to improve the situation. Making the punishment for bullying even stronger would discourage bullying from happening, and keep people who do bully others in check. No matter what is done however, there will still be bullying anyways.

  221. I don’t see bullying that much but it happens all the time. Teachers could put a more strict rule on bullying and then it might slow down. As far as I know one person committed suicide from bullying at Howell.

  222. Bullying is a huge problem at Howell High, just as big as it is anywhere else in the country or in the world. A lot of kids who bully don’t even know they are doing it, so they think nothing of it, but the victims are deeply affected, and that isn’t okay. I am not exactly sure what can be done about the bullying problem, but I do know that the classic approach to solving bullying issues, which is to educate kids on strategies that bullies will just laugh at them for using, telling kids to come tell adults when they witness bullying, or whatever it may be, these approaches don’t work. We need something drastically new and different to stop bullying here or anywhere.

  223. I think that there is a problem at HHS with bullying because every day i hear and see people calling each other inappropriate names and pushing each other around when there aren’t teachers around. There really isn’t anything that teachers or staff can do, the students just need to realize that if they see it happening that they need to confront the bully and try to stop it themselves, or report it to a teacher.

  224. Personally, I don’t see a lot of bullying at Howell High School but I’m sure it happens. I don’t think there is one simple way to stop bullying but for starters I think teachers and adults should encourage kids who do get bullied to speak up about it. Also, kids who stand up to bullies should be rewarded while bullies should be punished.

  225. I think that bullying is a problem in Howell High School, it happens all to often and is almost never reported. Kids are dumb and don’t really get the fact that it is okay that people are different and that you should accept them for what they are. Even know that will never happen…..punks..

  226. Bullying doesn’t seem like it is that big of a problem at Howell High school. If a student sees it happening they can go get a adult. If the staff sees it happening they can walk over to the bully and tell them to knock it off.

  227. Howell has a problem with bulling,but every school has bulling.Why do people have to be so negative towards one another.A lot of kids that are bullies crave attention.I don’t understand why we all cant get along,were all human beings.

  228. I do not feel that Howell has a very big problem with bullying. I have never really seen hard core bullying where a kid might skip school so he doesn’t have to deal with someone. The only bullying that I have ever seen is teasing. Even after someone makes a rude remark they will either apologize or say, “I’m just messing around bro, don’t take it to heart”. I feel that everyone in Howell Schools has been made fun of once, so they respect each other and don’t cross the line because they may know how it feels. If there was a problem, staff could set up more of an anonymous system that allows students to let staff know about bullying.

  229. i don’t think that there is a huge problem with bullying but i know that it still happens. If you see someone getting bullied i think that you should say something or report it to a teacher. Every kid deserves to have a bully free zone at their school so if you see it being done don’t just stand there and laugh actually stand up and say something some good could come from it. Saying something can always make someone feel better and make there day MUCH better.

  230. I think that there is not a big problem about bullying here in the high school. I think if you are being bullied though you should tell a teacher or a parent and let them work it out. If there was a lot of bullying I think the teachers and principle should be outside of their door at all times to prevent it or to see who is bullying.

  231. I don’t think that Howell has a bullying problem. At Howell people just start stupid drama that causes arguments but not bullying. If there was bulling a way to stop it or prevent it from getting worse is if a student sees anything they could tell a trusted adult.

  232. Howell High School doesn’t have a big problem with bullies because the majority of the people are friends with others so they wont be mean to anyone. If a student sees another student being bullied they should go tell a teacher what is going on. If a teacher sees a student being bullied they should take the student that is bullying to the principle.

  233. Bullying at Howell High School is a problem, but it doesn’t seem to be as big of a problem than in middle school.Students and staff can do anything to stop bullying, its not a hard thing to do. Its just that many either don’t care, or are too afraid to stop it. That’s more of a problem than bullying altogether.

  234. I don’t think that bullying is a problem hear because I never see it. I don’t see it but their is probably some problems with it. I think to help reduce the amount of bullying they need to strengthen the punishments on bullying and they need to help the victims that have been bullied.

  235. I think that it is a problem at Howell. It would be a problem at any school. There is always the bigger kid that has to take his anger out some way. It just kinda happens no matter where you are. I think it should be addressed though. The only way to fight bullying in my opinion is to address it when people are young, and start to show signs as little kids.

  236. Howell doesn’t have very big issues with bullying, its merely the students that think they are above everyone else, and if someone is getting bullied, most* students will just watch or keep walking, not helping at all.

  237. At Howell high school that not a lot of bullying, that I know of, but if there is I think one way we can stop it by keeping a good eye out and look for students roaming the halls and bathrooms, because a lot of stuff can happen during class that we may not know about.

  238. I have never seen a bullying problem at Howell High School. In middle school, I saw it once or twice but not at all at the high school. I think that if a student is getting bullied or if somebody witnesses a student getting bullied, they should immediately report it to a teacher or adult that would be able to handle the situation.

  239. I do not really know how bad it is considering i haven’t seen most of the high school quite yet. I can imagine that there is quite a bit of it. Honestly if a kid is having big time problems they just need to talk to a teacher or staff member that they trust. Plus other people should try their best to stick up for other people.

  240. Howell i think does not have bullies. people could have bad days and be mean but iv never really seen any thing that is bullying.

  241. Howell High School does not have a big problem with bullying. I don’t think that High Schools really have a big problem with bullying like middle school. But if there was a lot of bullying than i think the teachers should talk to the person getting bullied and the person bullying the other person. Most of the time the bully just has issues of his own that he takes out on a different person. But there is not a big problem with bullying in Howell High School.

  242. I don’t believe there are very serious cases of bullying. Yes, there are some incidents of when it has happened but it is not a main problem at Howell High School. I think to get rid of it you have to have everyone have the same personality. Most Bullying is a case of diverse ideas and thoughts.

  243. I believe bullying in our high school is getting out of control. when bullying is happening in our school it seems like it is happening to the same students every time. Students and staff should stick up for each other because this act could help the bullying come to a stop.

  244. I don’t think bullying at Howell is that bad. I’ve rarely if ever seen any bullying here at Howell in the few months that I’ve been here. I think if teachers and students worked together to prevent bullying then it would be easier to put an end to for those who are being bullied. Also if you’r e a student being bullied don’t run away, take a stand and stick up for yourself.

  245. Bullying isn’t that big of a deal in Howell. we don’t pick on little kids physically. i think there’s no bullying mostly because everyone knows their place in the school. if there was a bullying outbreak in the school then i may have some different feelings about it

  246. There is a slight bullying problem but it isn’t huge here in HHS. Some things students and staff can do is stand up for the person being bullied instead of standing around and watching or say something like “Stop!” and such. Also, students can report to an adult when someone is being bullied to stop the bully.

  247. Howell doesn’t have a lot of bullying, that I know of at least. Everyone needs to be nicer to each other and not making fun of people for being different. People need to keep an eye out for bullying because it is a terrible thing.

  248. I don’t see bullying as that large of a problem here at Howell. I do not see personally that many kids being severely bullied. What we could do to stop what little bulling we have is to make the consequences for it much larger, such as after school detentions. Or if it continues possible suspension.

  249. when i get bulled its a joke so i don’t think there’s any bulling.staff can yell at kids to say stop.

  250. I think that Howell has a bullying problem. I think that all the bullying happens after school and away from the teachers. If other students see it they should do something about it.

  251. I don’t think it’s too big of a problem at Howell High School but I still think that it is a slight problem. To get rid of it students could actually do something about it. Instead of doing what they do now which is just sit there and laugh.

  252. Howell doesn’t really have that big of a problem with bullying I think. There isn’t really any serious bullying at all that I have seen. If there was a problem, the high school could educate more people about the effects of bullying.

  253. Howell doesn’t have a big bullying problem. Many of the bullies, the few that there are, get caught or turned in. Some people do help the victim if they see bullying. If you were to see someone being bullied, would you help? Many people will say yes, but if it actually came to the time. I bet only a little bit would actually help, that is where we need to start. People need to start helping the victims, back them up, comfort them, etc.

  254. How big of a problem is bullying at Howell High School?
    I don’t think bullying is a very big problem at HHS. I don’t see it often.

    What can students and staff do to get rid of this horrendous practice at Howell High School?
    If there was A LOT of bullying at HHS, I think the students and staff can “patrol” the school more often.

  255. I don’t think bullying is that big of a problem in Howell. I guess it depends on the person because one who actually gets bullied here may have a different opinion. If there was a big problem here Teachers or other staff could start keeping a close eye what is happening around the school, they could stop it faster.

  256. i do think that Howell has a bullying problem. Students can change this by being nicer to one another and not picking on other people for their differences. There is not to much the staff can do than try to prevent disorderly conduct in the halls and people making fun of others.

  257. I don’t think that this is a very big problem in the Howell schools I think that is yes happens and yes it is very stupid for a person to do but I think that it is so they bully can take its anger out. We can try to get it out of the school but I don’t think that will really do anything because it can just happen outside of school I think to get it out we should have a bigger non-tolerance and have punishments that people like students wont like like a in school suspension.

  258. If you think that Howell doesn’t have a big bullying problem you need to open your eyes. People are bullied all the time in the lunch room and in the hallways. Online bullying is a big problem in Howell because most people feel more powerful behind a computer. The students and staff can help the bullying by actually doing something about it and not just sitting there and watching it happen.

  259. I don’t think Howell has a huge problem with bullying. I don’t see it everyday, it happens every now and then. To keep this horrendous act from happening, teachers could organize an assembly that have real people who have gotten bullied to share their stories.

  260. I haven’t gotten bullied since I came to high school. It still exists, but if you want to find the bigger problem, look to the middle schools, there’s a horrendous amount of bullying there. I’m honestly not sure how to get rid of it. I used to be bullied constantly every day, I tried everything, and was very frustrated that adults thought they knew how to solve it. In all honesty, I’m not sure there is a way to stop it.

  261. Any bullying problem is a big problem. People who get bullied can often cause personal injury or screw up their life because of skipping school, doing worse, or not paying attention. Bullying can be prevented more by schools. There is a ton of things the schools can actually do to prevent bully’s. Schools for one can make the punishments so severe that people don’t dare to bully. Something intense that will scare bully’s. Though it may be hard I think that the schools should act upon it because, who knows, maybe that will save a life.

  262. No i don’t think bullying is a problem i have not been bullied nor have i seen it. its only in movies. I think allot of those polls are wrong there just stupid high schoolers putting in stupid answers.

  263. There is not as much bullying than there is kids thinking that there better than each other. I don’t know any way of reducing this. Other than too just forget about it and ignore people.

  264. i don’t think its that big of a problem and i mean if somebody is bullying you. you have the right to stick up for your self. i mean im not going to hit me or spit on me if some one were to spit on me they’d be done i would give a care about school or anything around me i would drop him no matter the consaquense

  265. I’ve never seen anybody getting bullied at Howell but if it’s happening they should turn to friends or find an adult. They should just remember that the bully is just one person. Even though I’ve never seen anybody intentionally hurt somebody else I’ve heard people spread mean rumors or talk about each other.

  266. Not too much of a bullying problem at Howell Schools. This school just involves verbal “joking” comments. Other then that, this school rarely has fights. I’m guessing about 3 fights this whole year?

  267. Bullying isn’t really a problem at Howell High School. Students and Staff can get rid of this by talking to everyone what bullying can effect. There could be consequences to bullying if there is some.

  268. I think that there is a problem but not a huge one. the bullies are trying to make themselves feel better by putting others down. The people that are bullies are probably not gonna get a good job like the people that are getting bullied. On the radio they say that Howell has a problem but its everywhere. Most people are only looking to benefit themselves and the people that don’t do that aren’t selfish.

  269. it is not that big of a problem at the school. The people that are billing have problems of there own.

  270. like every school, it is a problem. though it isnt that large of one, it does exist. they can stop caring about what people say and realize that it isnt true. and their friends can open their eyes and reinforce those beliefs to help them ignore said bullying.

  271. I don’t really have a very big problem with bulling. But I used to get bulled a lot in the past very badly but if you have a problem with bulling or someone that bullies you the best thing for you to do is to tell a trusted adult or someone you can trust. It really helps and they can tell you how to handle it or try to get more help. The ways that other students and teachers can help would be if they see a kid getting bulled you could do something about it instead of just standing there and doing nothing about it.

  272. Howell i think does’t have a bulling problem but those that bully have alot of problems them selfs. If kids stand up to bully’s then they will go away. Also if you see someone being bulled help them out.

  273. I don’t think Howell has that big of a bullying rate but there is some people out there that do bully. I think teachers and students can help by stepping in when they see someone getting bullied. Students need to start sticking up for themselves and for other students when they are in need.

  274. at Howell bulling isn’t a big problem but there will all ways be that one bully because he wants attention or to make them self’s feel better than others, but they only make them self’s look worse to others that way

  275. bullying isn’t that big of a problem at Howell high school. like everywhere people are gonna go there is some bullying but it’s usually not too harsh. people can just walk away, tell someone and get help, whether its an adult or friend.

  276. I’m not really sure to be honest. I don’t see people getting bullied a lot but I know it happens. A way students can stop it is standing up for yourself and show them it doesn’t bother you when they bully you. A way teachers can help stop bullying is stopping it when they see it. Teachers always just sand there and don’t say anything to help the person getting bullied.

    • That last part is true. However, think about our table, with the dudes who think they’re all that because they can throw food at people. And there, in my opinion, is a ton more than that that schools can do.

  277. It’s not that big of a problem.because i don’t see it happen that often.Everyone can be nicer to each other.

  278. I don’t think bullying is that big of a problem at Howell High school. There is some bullying but I don’t think it’s as much as other schools. For the most part I think everyone gets along pretty well. Students and staff could add more camera’s with someone monitoring at all times so that they can stop it before it gets worst. Some students might not tell the teacher so the monitor person can stop it because the student is scared to tell.

  279. There is not really a problem in Howell of bullying. People stick up for you if you are and you should tell somebody. It’s mostly a middle school problem. That’s where id kind of starts. And if you don’t take care of it there then it will follow you all the way up in till you get out of school.

  280. I don’t really see any problems with bullying at Howell High, but i’m sure there is some bullying going on. But students and staff can control it by if they see it to do something and also teach how bullying can have a big affect on someone and their family.

  281. I don’t see much bulling at Howell schools. I actually like that there is no bulling here at Howell. But some fights and disagreements have been brought up and that the only violence i can think of. Students and staff can become more closer and listen to the teachers and take their advice. that would make Howell a bully free community.

  282. Its hard to say, i don’t know much about any bullying happening here at Howell, me and my friends make jokes about each other, but we know that we are just kidding around, but to me, it seems that there was more bullying last year in middle school than in high school.

  283. I don’t think bullying is really a problem, but their are allot of judgmental kids that are rude and dont give a crap about other students. And thats a problem, I think that the school should council certain students because of their problems.

  284. Howell doesn’t really have a problem with bullying. Some kids do get pushed around. but what the bullies don’t understand is that the simplest joke like that can hurt someone deeply. Teachers need to get more involved with students. Not just stand there. If they see someone getting pushed around they should so something.

  285. Howell really doesn’t have a big bullying problem. Kids everywhere are bullied but sometimes its their fault that they are. Also that some people who get bullied bully others, so they deserve it.

  286. I don’t think that Howell has a big bulling. I have never seen it with my own two eyes. But i think that if the person is getting bullied then he should tell an adult or if someone sees it then they should tell someone too.

  287. At Howell High school i don’t see that much bullying and if you do see bullying its probably people with problems. If you ever see someone getting bullied then don’t just watch it go get an adult that will help out.

  288. I don’t see a lot of bullying at Howell High School. That doesn’t mean that there is not any here! Bullying is everywhere, weather it’s physical, emotional, etc. A big form of bullying is cyber bullying. People cyber bully because they don’t think anyone can see it.

  289. Its not a big problem and i don’t see it, it may true but i don’t know. make bully awareness and help people who been bullied. To help kids from not being bullied and speak up.

  290. I don’t see bullying that much in out school but I know it does happen. I just think the staff could keep an eye out for it. Also maybe they could just ask students if they are and if they are they could get the help they need.

  291. I don’t think that bullying is such a huge problem at Howell high school, I don’t really see it that much in the school. I guess for the little bit of bullying that occurs staff can try harder to actually see the bullying occur. And the students that are doing the bullying should just stop.

  292. Howell kinda does have a bullying problem, a lot of my friends have had very mean things said to them, but it isn’t happening constantly so it isn’t really bullying, but it made me really upset & angry what people said to my friends, and it shocked me that people could be so mean. What people can do is stand up for themselves or stand up for others. Even telling an adult is a big help.

    • i totally agree. there are a lot of people how get bullied and don’t do anything about it. everyone needs to learn how to stand up for themselves.

  293. Howell isn’t the worst school I’ve seen with bullying, but it still happens to kids I know. Even me personally when I was younger. People should stand up if they ever see bullying because kids don’t deserve to have the singled out and alone feeling of someone being mean to them. Students and staff can do as much as they can to stop kids from getting picked on. If you are by yourself or with a group of friends, tell that bully that what he or she is doing is wrong.

  294. There is some bullying at the High School like people getting into fights and false language. I think they need to have a better setup for the students because a lot of people get bullied so they should have more control over the students so this doesn’t keep happening. And the students should stop if they are bulling someone because they are not thinking of what that other person is going through and why make it worse when they can just stop so nobody gets hurt.

  295. I don’t think Howell has that big of a problem with bullying. Yeah you will see it every now and them but it doesn’t happen a lot. I think that we can have bigger punishments for bulling. Another thing they could do is have people and teachers be more assertive instead of just standing there and watching students get bullied.

  296. It’s not big but it can happen. I recently had to get someone to help stop it from further happening to me. If anyone sees it should just step out and help.

  297. Howell has very few bully’s if any i think if a kid is being picked on its not b/c a kid is trying to make your life hard its probably b/c the other kid is having a bad day and is taking it out on someone else its not right and the student should find a better way to blow of steam

  298. I wouldn’t say bullying is that huge of a problem at the Howell High school. I mean I never see anyone being bullied, so I guess I could be wrong. Some kids pick on other students. But there’s nothing really big that ever happens at our school. Everything’s mainly through like Facebook and texting, so know one ever knows whats going on.

  299. there really isn’t a bulling issue in Howell and if there was most of the teachers and students would shut it down

  300. I think bullying is a problem, but it is one that goes mostly unnoticed. If people just stand up for themselves and not just take it, maybe the problem would diminish.

  301. Howell doesn’t have a huge problem with bullying but kids tease a lot and then its kinda like its all good, or i’m just kidding man stuff like that but nothing huge.

  302. I dont think there is a huge problem with bullying here but it is happening. You can never fully eliminate bullying but the severe types of bullying you can. If you see someone getting bullyed stick up for them, you would want the same done for you im sure.

  303. I think bullying is not much of a huge problem at Howell high school. Also if there was a lot i think the teachers and staff should talk to the kids who are getting bullied with the kids who are doing it to figure out the problem.

  304. Bullying is a very big problem at Howell high school. kids think there better then everyone else and try to act like they own the world. The schools should try harder to keep bullying out of the school. When students actually see it, instead of laughing go and help the person. Teachers should also keep a better eye out for it. it is a problem that needs to try and be solved.

  305. I don’t see it as a big deal at our school. You can watch the students and see what they are doing and focus on what they say to other students.

  306. Howell doesn’t have a very big problem with bulling but the people who do it are just people with problems so if you are getting bulled tell some one and get help. if a student or a teacher sees something they can get help and not just stand there trialing their fingers
