Can teenagers anywhere in the U.S. get restraining orders against bullies who stalk, threaten, or verbally assault them?

I've been following the Phoebe Prince case in MA. This high school girl committed suicide after months of torment at the hands of a group of bullies. If Ms. Prince had been in college, I believe she could have gotten an order of protection against anyone who threatened her in these ways.
Can middle school or high school students being bullied get restraining orders to prevent bullies from harassing or stalking them?
