Many families find themselves in similar situations and there are professionals who can help.  Be in communication with the school about the problems you are having and get in touch with a board certified behavior analyst in your area (the Behavior Analysis Certification Board website has a search function you can use).  Aggression and tantrums can be effectively treated and the earlier treatment is initiated, the better the prognosis for success.
