Ninth grade student Noah Kilpatrick has withdrawn from a U.S. high school, charging that he has been the victim of unrelenting bullying. The alleged aggressors? Two of the school’s teachers.

Though the Faith Fellowship Christian School has a nondiscrimination policy, 15-year-old Kilpatrick said he was teased because he was born in Canada, even though he's an American citizen and has been living in the U.S. for 10 years.

The teen said Theodore Curinga, the school’s principal and history teacher, constantly singled him out to make fun of his Canadian origins. The school’s math teacher has also been accused of harassment.

"History class and sometimes math class … they were stereotyping Canadians and saying we were all stupid — it was offensive," Kilpatrick told the National Post.

The teachers apparently made fun of how he dressed, and denigrated Canada and his Canadian heritage.

Kilpatrick’s mother, Tina, tried to intervene, requesting meetings with the teachers and school officials, but was repeatedly given “the runaround,” she said.

Since the matter has hit the news media, officials have declined to address news outlets, but has called for a meeting of the school’s board of directors.

In the meantime, Kilpatrick is being homeschooled to complete his last semester of ninth grade. The family has not ruled out the possibility of leaving the U.S. altogether.

The Faith Fellowship Christian School, located in Watertown, N.Y., has been in operation for 21 years and was established “for families that didn’t want to leave God out of school.”
