What Others Say

"Since the program has been implemented, disciplinary referrals have declined and students have become more vigilant than in the past."                                                                                      Centreville Middle School Principal Amy Hudock

“We have a lot of students who find themselves in these difficult situations", Engel said in a recent interview. “A lot of students are crying out for help, and they do it in different ways.”

“When you think about stopping a kid from killing himself, those pieces became infinitely more valuable than even the bullying part,”                                                                                    Delegate Steve Arentz Maryland House of Delegates
