Ballou said the student’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Ballou said school officials “believe but are not certain’’ the victim argued with a student from another Boston school prior to the stabbing.

No arrests have been reported.

Police responded to the high school at 240 Medford St. at 8:43 a.m., McGuire said.

The incident is under investigation by police and the school department.
