Student Honor Code
William Henry Spencer High School expects students to uphold standards of honorable conduct. The stakeholders (students, faculty and parents) of William Henry Spencer High School initiated this honor code. It sets standards and serves as a guideline for classroom instruction regarding ethical behavior. To uphold the Honor Code, students are encouraged to report known violations. If a student observes another student committing an Honor Code violation or acting illegally, the student should notify a teacher, Assistant Principal(s), or Principal. Teachers who have knowledge of an Honor Code violation shall notify the Assistant Principal of Discipline.
Under the William Henry Spencer High School Honor Code, all persons are expected to:
- Demonstrate respect for all people in our school and community as well as for the school as an institution. This includes, but is not limited to, respecting the religious, ethnic, social and economic background of all members of the school and community. Prejudiced conduct because of religion, race, gender or ethnicity is prohibited.
- Demonstrate honesty in all matters. Lying, cheating, plagiarism, and stealing are serious offenses (see below for a definition of Cheating and Plagiarism). If a student is uncertain about whether certain conduct constitutes cheating, the student should ask the teacher for clarification.
