I'm so sorry that your high school experience has been so negative!

Have you discussed this issue with your parents or other adults that you trust? Having an adult advocate will help you get results.

If you haven't already, speak to your school guidance counselor or advisor ASAP. He/she may be able to help you solve the issue at your current school or perhaps find an alternative program in the area. I know there is the Alliance School in Milwaukee The Alliance School Milwaukee, but I don't if you or your family will have to pay tuition and if it's possible for you to get to/from a school in Milwaukee each day.

Good luck, be strong.

can you transfer into a nearby district via open enrollment? I know KM takes bullying VERY seriously.
Good luck to you.

New Berlin might be another option. I know the district well and they have really stepped up their anti-bullying programs.

I know how hard and scary it can be to deal with bullying - the sadness and humiliation I felt as a result of bullying caused me to miss nearly a year of school when I was in 7th grade. Looking back, I wish I had known to go to the adults in my school and have them help me solve the issue. If you can't take on the bullies directly - I know that's not always an option - then PLEASE seek out adults at your school who can help you. Sometimes it takes a while to transfer districts, and that's something your parents will have to be on-board with, so you may have to keep going to your current school for a few weeks or even the remainder of this school year.

Plus, by getting adults at your school involved you will be helping other students who are being bullied but might not be brave enough to do something about it. I did a quick search of the terms "bully" and "bullying" on the Elmbrook schools website, and I didn't find anything. You could help do an amazing thing for your community by making sure the schools are going to stand up for and protect you and other students - but the schools need to know it's a problem.

There are online high schools accredited by the Wisconsin DPI. If you call them you could see if you could get into one of those. You'd be working from home then. Not the best choice if you don't have other social opportunities, but maybe a temporary solution?
