NV Honor Code

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Honor is one of a person’s greatest attributes and most cherished traits. An honor system is based on the premise that a person upholds the highest standards in all that he or she does. Honor and integrity are related to our school’s key characteristics. Without honor, students cannot achieve their maximum potential. Under the Honor Code at Northern Valley Regional High School, it is expected that all students will demonstrate honesty and integrity in their conduct. Intentional lying, cheating, and stealing will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Any person who violates the Honor Code must be held accountable for compromising the honor and trust of our community.

Each student is responsible for upholding and enforcing the Honor Code. The Northern Valley Honor Code cannot work unless each student takes action when he or she believes anyone may have violated the Honor Code.
