Side by Side Bullying Prevention Program


Side by Side Pledge

At Regis Jesuit we will:

Not bully others
Help students who are bullied
Include students who are left out
Talk to an adult and expect a response

RJHS is joining hundreds of schools around the country and throughout the world that are taking action to stop and prevent bullying. Side by Side promotes a positive peer culture by empowering our community to stand
“side by side.”



Side by Side is based on the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, the leading research-based program that has been shown to reduce bullying and make schools safer, happier places for students to learn and grow. Visit the Olweus Bullying Prevention website for resources and additional information.
