Academic Honesty Policy
The IB Student in the Jefferson/Longfellow Middle Years Program (MYP) is expected to hold themselves to the highest standard of academic honesty as referenced in the IB Learner Profile traits of being principled, reflective students. This applies to all academic areas including daily work, collaboration, assessment, personal interactions, and ethical behavior. It is important for our students to learn what it means to be principled in their academic work and, therefore, prepare them for success in their future careers. This Honor Code includes all classes and activities associated with both Longfellow Middle School and Jefferson High School.
