The study aimed to identify the reality of school bullying from the perspective of the victims, bullies, educators and workers in one of the private schools at Nablus city.The researchers employed the qualitative research method that was based on face-to-face interviews. Moreover, the age range of the selected sample was between (13-16) years old.
The findings of the study revealed the forms of bullying at the school, its causes, and the school policy to tackle it. Most of the results were characterized by having a problematic definition for "bullying." Moreover, the school was confused in dealing with bullying in all its forms, and there was a lack of a clear strategy to address the problem. The study recommended the necessity to have school- based bullying prevention and treatment programs designed to reduce the bullying phenomenon at schools.
