Recent Violence Leaves a San Jose High School on Edge

Families and staff from James Lick High School in San Jose are expressing fear and frustration with what they call out-of-control violence on campus.

On August 17, several intruders entered the school and stabbed two students. Fortunately, the students were not fatally injured.

The attack came just days after another group of teens and adults came onto campus and assailed students as well as school staff.

Mike Gatenby, who teaches at the school, said it isn’t safe there.

"I believe our school is in crisis," he said in a video posted online. 

Parents who spoke to NBC News also expressed frustration with the deteriorating security situation.

James Lick’s principal says the school has better secured the perimeter gate. The school is also adding a second campus monitor.
