"It seemed bullying was briefer, more isolated, and the kids had time to reflect," said Half Moon Bay Principal Mary Streshly, speaking of a time not so long ago.
Now, she said, the school is getting fewer reports of traditional bullying and more about rumors and cruelty online, or what has become known as cyberbullying.
When the high school gets involved with reported cases, Streshly said, "we'll see a long string of engaged communication, and because it's such a common, everyday way of communicating, the student will (be surprised) to see it turn on them."
The fact that kids are engaged in the medium makes cyberbullying difficult to combat, she said. In fact, the Cyberbullying Research Center study found that roughly the same percentage of students who report being the victim of online bullying also perpetrate cyberbullying.
"Sometimes we're the only recourse for parents and students," Streshly said.
The high school addresses it by looking back to the offensive communication and involving the counselor's office to talk with students about bouncing back after being bullied, she said.

Nonetheless, the high school's stance is two-pronged, explained Half Moon Bay High School Principal Mary Streshly. The school must maintain a tough stance on bullying, and victims must learn resilience she said, clarifying that this approach is difficult to maneuver because, "you never want to blame the victim."
"We must teach kids to stand up for friends, and we must help them learn to understand why something hurts their feelings," she said.
Furthermore, Streshly is troubled by the overarching nature of the term "bullying. It can range from someone being called fat while walking down the hall or constant sexual harassment, she said. Ultimately the term, "should be used to describe continuing behavior that makes someone feel unsafe," she said.
The recent buzz around bullying points to either an increase in the damaging behavior (perhaps amplified by new social media) or by a sharpened cultural awareness about it.
Streshly said this uncertainty is one of the hardest parts of the issue. She noted that after working at five schools in the last 17 years, Half Moon Bay High School has the nicest group of kids. She doesn't think meanness is on the rise but that our society is increasingly putting its foot down about meanness.
The high school's protocol is to counsel the students who are impacted and investigate every complaint.
"You have to be OK that our (statistics) will increase as kids report it more. Streshly said, adding that the more hands-on approach to reporting comes through in the school's higher recorded rates of bullying.
For the gay student who's suffered blow after blow from school bullies, he feels disciplining the bully won't work but will only add more resentment.
Besides working with a school counselor, he has found his own ways of coping, including befriending popular girls so that their boyfriends will not hassle him.
"They say it's (getting) better, that there's a law, but it still happens," he said, after returning to school last week following his semester respite. "They have these assemblies about bullying and harassment and people will sit and roll their eyes the whole time."
He sees no solution unless, "you can capture babies and raise them differently."
