Months after the Mission Hill K-8 School in Boston was closed down, the city and former employees are now facing a federal lawsuit.

In the most recent lawsuit filed against the Jamaica Plain school, two parents are suing the City of Boston and three former Mission Hill employees, accusing staff of a failure to report and address bullying. The lawsuit alleges that the principal discouraged students from reporting physical and sexual abuse, and also claims that “disability and civil rights laws” were not followed.
