RPBHS Is Named ‘No Place For Hate’

Royal Palm Beach High School was designated as “No Place for Hate” by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in recognition of its active commitment to fostering a bias-free environment and implementing bullying-prevention strategies.

ADL’s No Place for Hate anti-bullying and anti-cyber bullying campaign empowers schools to promote respect for individual and group differences while challenging prejudice and bigotry.

No Place for Hate is an initiative of the Anti-Defamation League offered free to schools. It is designed to rally the entire school around the goal of creating a welcoming community committed to stopping all forms of bias and bullying.

No Place for Hate provides a unique framework to incorporate new and existing programs with one consistent message. No Place for Hate helps schools foster a culture of respect and create a safe, bully-free learning environment for students at all grade levels.

No Place for Hate is embraced by public, private and parochial schools across the country, because bullying and bias are an unhappy reality in most schools today and pose a threat to the safe learning environment essential for students to succeed.

The campaign has the added benefit of preparing young people to live and work successfully in a pluralistic nation and global community.

Corporate leaders understand that this cultural competency increases the productivity and effectiveness of all staff. Last year, more than 125 schools earned their No Place for Hate designation, and schools are noticing a real impact on their school climate.

The schools that benefit most from this program make it visible and incorporate its message of respect into the fabric of daily school life and school culture.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is one of the nation’s premier human relations and civil rights organizations, fighting anti-Semitism and bigotry of all kinds. For more info., visit www.adl.org and www.florida.adl.org.
