BOSTON (WHDH) - A new report found that a harmful staff culture at the now-closed Mission Hill School in Jamaica Plain led to failures in addressing abuse and bullying at the school.

The report, commissioned by Boston Public Schools, said that staff was aware of the bullying and abuse at the school but failed to adequately address the issues.

The law firm behind the report also said that staff culture prevented them from fully investigating the allegations

The Boston School Committee shut down the school in May after the findings of a report commissioned by former Boston Schools Superintendent Brenda Cassellius.

The original report was released in April. In it, investigators laid out findings that the school failed to protect students from threats of sexual misconduct and abuse from other students and failed to properly address bullying.
