Bullying Prevention and Intervention

Walt Whitman Middle School and Fairfax County Public Schools are both deeply committed to creating a safe and positive school environment where all students can learn. Through school-wide positive behavior approaches and participation in K-12 health and guidance lessons, students are taught to behave respectfully and to resolve conflicts in positive ways. A culture of acceptance and the creation of safe opportunities to discuss concerns is actively developed through class meetings, interactions, and relationships with caring adults.
