It depends on the school. Personally, there is alot of bullying, but it is verbal. The movies exaggerate the physical aspect. Its not as if you are always going to see upperclassmen beating a freshman with their fist or throwing them into lockers. Even if it does happen to that extreme, it is very rare and is probably stopped immediately. But that isn't for sure.
There is bullying, but I personally think it's exaggerated in the movies. When I was in high school, I never saw anyone being pushed against the lockers, or someone taking their backpack and dumping everything out. I agree that bullying exists, but I went to high school in Germany for a year and the bullying seemed about the same there.
Yes there is a lot of bullying but it is heavily dependent on where you go to school and the type of Social environment in that city. For example I got to a very diverse and accepting school so although it's in the south I've never been called any racial slurs or really been disrespected because of who I am. There are always exceptions but that's my overall experience. I think media tends to play up the physical violence aspect of bullying when I would say emotional bullying is far more common
