The success of each student is a responsibility shared by all members of our society. Arts Academy in the Woods recognizes that the main responsibility for student success rests with the school, the home and the individual student. As a school citizen, each student has certain rights, privileges and responsibilities. An effective school organization must include fair rules that will protect the rights of all and permit the educational process to proceed in an orderly fashion. The parents must prepare the student by fostering a positive attitude toward learning as well as ensuring regular attendance and appropriate behavior on the part of the student. The school must provide an environment that is safe, orderly and conducive to learning.
It is the purpose of this publication to ensure that the students have full knowledge of their rights and responsibilities and clearly understand the consequences of behaviors that infringe upon others’ rights. This code will apply to all student behaviors occurring on any school property, at any school sponsored activity or related to events occurring on school property or school related activity. We believe that students should be recognized for good conduct and that acts of misconduct will result in disciplinary, corrective and/or legal action against the student.
Please read this publication carefully, be guided by its content, and work with the teachers and administrators to make AAW an enjoyable place to live and learn.
