School violence is a pressing societal issue. Amidst growing concerns about school safety and intense public pressure, school administrators are taking action and implementing strategies designed to curb school violence. However, these strategies work best when schools, parents and the society are involved. Surveys were administered to parents and teachers to gather their perceptions of these strategies. Results were viewed through the lens of Bronfenbrenner’s ecological. The findings indicate that the strategies used by the schools included dealing with disruptive behaviours early, monitoring students outside classrooms, organizing crisis response teams, and encouraging parental involvement. The study concludes that school violence should be addressed by society as a whole. The empirical contribution of this paper is founded on the fact that this study is conducted in the context of school violence and safety in Saudi schools where there is limited empirical evidence.
