    A student attacked a teacher with a stun gun at a high school in the West Village Thursday afternoon, police say.

    Police say that the teacher, 30, was arguing over grades in a classroom at City-As-School High School on Clarkson Street at about 1 p.m. and had turned away from the student when she was hit with the stun gun.

    The shocked teacher spun around and the student stunned her a second time, hitting her in the chest.

    The teacher then ran from the classroom in an attempt to escape from the student, and police were called to the scene.

    The student left the school and hasn’t been apprehended, police say. 

    The city Department of Education said that the teacher was treated at the hospital after the attack.
