Help! My 7 year old son is always in trouble at school.

I'm at my wits end...my 7 year old is always in trouble at school. I feel like I've tried everything, we've taken stuff away, we do time outs, yelling (which does absolutely nothing). He is always fighting at school, he punches kids and hurts them because they did something to him. I can tell that many of these kids he wants to be friends with. So when they treat him badly he hurts them. I keep telling him that if they do something mean to him he should tell the teacher and let them deal with it. That never seems to happen. This has been going on for a couple of years, I want to help him. I understand that it is something that I'm doing or not doing, it's always the parents fault. I'm unsure of what to do, his teachers are understandably frustrated. How do dicipline him enough to get him to stop what he does at school? Any advice would be greatly aappreciated. Thanks
