A teacher and a student were taken to the hospital Wednesday after a fight broke out near a school in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood.

Boston police confirmed they responded to 20 Outlook Road, the address of the Young Achievers Science and Math Pilot School, around 3:30 p.m. They said a fight broke out between a group of female students and led to injuries.

Police said the fight happened off campus after hours. Neighbors said it happened when a group of girls jumped another girl who was walking home with a teacher's aide.

The teacher who was taken to the hospital has injuries that are not life-threatening. Information on the extent of the student's injuries was not immediately clear.

No arrests have been made.

Young Achievers is a K-8 school and part of the Boston Public Schools system. They released a statement Wednesday night reading:

"All Boston Public Schools community members deserve to feel safe and free from bullying and violence. Nothing is more important than the safety of our children and staff and providing our young people with a learning environment that makes them feel physically and emotionally safe, respected and academically challenged."

More details were not immediately released.
