At the moment the academy has 45 students enrolled due to bullying. Being bullied can cause serious problems with self-esteem and can ultimately lead to suicide in most serious cases. Although bullying has been around since small kids were pushed around on the playground but experts say the problem has evolved into something much more sinister and isn’t going to end anytime soon.
