If your son is havinag persistent behavior problems at school you need to seek help from the guidance counselors.  If they cannot provide specific behavioral programs to deal with the difficulties I recommend that you have the school system find a consultant who is experienced with behavior issues and is a certified behavior analyst.  You do not mention a diagnosis so I can't speak to that issue except to note that persistent behavior problems suggest a need to have a team evaluation by a local hospital or university to rule out developmental or psychiatric issues.
