Jace is probably suffering a great deal being chucked into a normal American High School which is akin to being thrown in a pit of hungry crocodiles.
PTSD id treatable, both with medication and with therapy, and Jace is young enough that if he gets the right treatment, he'll be able to lead a fairly normal life. He may always hate blood and physical confrontation, but he can probably curb the panic attacks and learn to be comfortable in the dark.
I hope he picks a career helping animals like being a vet or something like that.
In the meantime, he should sit down with his mother and a school counselor and the school psychologist to talk about what kind of therapeutic educational opportunities are available to him. His mother would do well to remember that the local school district is required by law to provide him an educational environment that is suitable, and that sometimes means they have to pay for students to go to a private institution. My sister went to two years of private residential school because the district she was in could not provide a learning environment that worked for her.
I hope that you are Jace's friend. People with severe mental illnesses tend to become very socially isolated right when they need the support of loving friends the most.
