I would suggest that you speak with the school about her seeing a psychologist. A good place to start would be with the school counsellor if they have one. Rebellious behaviour can often be indicative of emotional distress, and the more marked it becomes the more it is a signal to you as parents that she wants you to notice her unhappiness. Your daughter having a safe space in which to talk will help her to begin making sense of why she feels so angry and upset.
