Academic Honesty Policy

We want students at the High School of American Studies to take pride in their work and to respect the intellectual efforts of others. Students should comport themselves at the High School of American Studies with a clear sense of integrity and honor, both socially and academically.

To that end, the faculty will not tolerate any form of cheating or plagiarism. As ninth graders, students will receive explicit instruction on what constitutes plagiarism and the proper forms of citation. Furthermore, teachers in all grades will be vigilant in assessing students’ work and conduct. Read our policy here.
