Cyberbullying at School

 Cyberbullying has been going on since the internet was a thing. It has affected all students; middle schoolers and high schoolers mainly.

Cyberbullying can lead to depression and even thoughts of suicide. It can even lead to other problems.
According to Gulnaz Khan “Victims of cyberbullying are at risk of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, low self-esteem, poor school performance, and an increased risk of suicidal behavior.” This can be a big impact for a victims future. Cyberbullying can also lead to frequent mood swings. This can also impact the mood of the people around them.

There are different things you can do at school if you need help with cyberbullying.

According to English teacher Ms.Taglia, “Students can go to the social worker and admin (principals) if they are victims of cyberbullying. I’d also suggest they talk to a teacher they trust for support. All of these people are available throughout the day and may even be available via email after school hours.” This can help the student open up and it can help avoid future mental problems.

“I think cyberbullying is active on the majority of social media platforms. I am not sure how each teacher is bringing awareness to this.

Looking at my class, I monitor comments on Google Classroom to ensure that there is not cyberbullying on google classroom. If a student tells me they are being bullied on social media accounts, there are protocols for teachers to do to ensure bullying stops,” English teacher Mr.Humphreys said.


Sometimes victims of cyber bullying keep quiet about what is going on with them out of embarrassment.
