Actually it's a wonder there's not more kids deciding the only way out is to eliminate those that bully them, both teachers and other students.

Because there is precious little recourse a kid has in this scenario:

1. He cannot escape. He can't simply avoid going to school because he is being forced to do so.
2. He cannot avoid them. He cannot not cross their path. He can't put space between his tormentors and himself because he has to go to his classes.
3. He has no way to get aid. Anyone who could come to his aid has an interest in not aiding him.

The only logical choices are to endure it or to put an end to the situation. And the way for that is to end the life of those bullying him. It's actually very reasonable, considering the lack of other options...

The point is that this is not part of the whole scenario the revenge seeking bully target plays out in his head. He's not going "Hmm... I'll do it in the school, 'cause they might be armed in the movie theater". Not only 'cause it's even less likely that someone might be armed in a movie theater.

He's doing it at his school, because that's where he was hurt, that's where he was bullied, that's where he was wronged, that's where he was humiliated. He wants to settle the score, nothing else.
