What aspect of: School do you believe is causing this? Academics ? Bullying? Social isolation? If there is a problem with bullying would advise school principal. Would encourage you to find therapy for your teen which can provide support, an outlet to vent and reality feedback. A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation is warranted.
