Trailer: Documentary on Bullying at Mentor High School, Plus Reaction from School Officials


Five Mentor High School students have committed suicide in recent years. That's a troubling number, and it hasn't escaped the attention of parents or the media, especially when families say that bullying in the halls of the high school drove their children to despair. Two of those families have sued the school district. One lawsuit has been dropped, the other goes on.

There's a documentary in the works by Alix Lambert on the alleged Mentor bullying problem, the trailer for which is above. The film isn't completed yet, but it's already touched nerves in the city.

School officials posted brief notes on the MHS site this week in response to the trailer and a Plain Dealer article about the documentary. They haven't and won't say much — legal reasons, naturally.
