Peer Mediation at the Rock! New Program at RRHS Led by National Honor Society Peer mediation is a program where students facilitate resolving disputes between other students. Peer mediators do not “make decisions” but rather work towards a win-win solution for both sides in order to avoid future conflict. The disputants must sign a contract saying they agree to abide by the terms. Students can complete a referral form from the Peer Mediation Box located in Student Services.
