This paper will first discuss the start of peer mediation programs in high schools. It will go on to discuss Avalon School as an example of an existing peer mediation program in a high school. From there it will discuss some details of certain elements of Avalon’s peer mediation program, including looking at the alternative options. It will conclude with comments on what this information tells us about future generations’ ability to positively resolve conflicts and where the reader can go from here.
