MENASHA - Bullying happens both inside and outside the classroom.
With the rise of cyberbullying, schools say they are taking the fight online.
These students at Maplewood Middle School in Menasha are battling bullying one click at a time.
"From the sixth grade to the eighth grade I've seen a lot of bullying go down since I started this program," said eighth grader Katelin Sell.
The students are using an online program called "Act Now." The anti-bullying program runs students through different scenarios to teach them how to react.
And educators say it is meeting students where some learn best.
"It's more engaging to them, that's their medium these days so we need to use what they use to get the message across to them," said Assistant State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor.
But with cyberbullying on the rise, schools are facing a tough challenge.
"We spend a lot of time with students in keeping this stuff at the forefront, which I think continues to help us empower students to deal with it," said Menasha Joint School District Superintendent Chris VanderHeyden.
"Act Now" was created by the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in 2010. Versions are available to schools throughout the state for kindergarten through eighth grades.
"It uses technology and really interacts with kids in the way that they enjoy and it has shown schools results in reducing bullying within their schools," said Bridget Clementi with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
Students say while the programs have made a difference, bullying is still a problem.
"Usually it's just teasing, saying stuff like, about what you are wearing and stuff like that but you definitely still see it everyday," said eighth grader Christian Aguilar.
And educators know it will take more than just students and teachers to end the problem.
"There are things that each of us can do to minimize, eliminate or prevent bullying," said Stanford Taylor.
The "Act Now" program is free to schools.
Last year more than 100 school districts and 31,000 students used the program.
