Students age 12-18 reported experiencing more violence at school than away from school. Therefore, various approaches (i.e., prevention curriculum, behavior modification, counseling, mentoring by adults, recreational, student involvement, and social integration) have been developed to prevent school violence. Studying which programs are associated with decreased school violence may be helpful in identifying effective strategies to reduce violent incidents. The study’s objective was to examine the relationship between program type and serious violent and violent incidents, and bullying frequency in school. Findings indicate that behavior modification interventions and recreational programs are positively associated with violent incidents in schools. Findings also indicate that prevention curriculum or training programs; behavior modification interventions; and recreational programs are positively associated with serious violence incidents in schools. There was no association between any of the program types and frequency of bullying. Future research should assess program fidelity and its relationship to school violence.
