King/Drew Magnet High School faculty, staff, students, and parents
are committed to creating a safe environment in which our students
acquire the knowledge and maturity they need to function in an increasingly
complex society. King/Drew is a place where students pursue learning
and attain their goals in an atmosphere of respect, support, encouragement,
nurturance, guidance, and high expectations. King/Drew students
have traditionally supported these efforts by living up to the highest
academic and personal standards.
King/Drew students subscribe to a moral code that requires them
to submit their own work representing their own learning. Any student
who illegally obtains materials that compromise the integrity of
any test or assignment will fail the test or assignment and be subject
to administrative discipline Students cheating during the administration
of any test (giving or receiving unfair advantage over other students)
will be considered in violation of the King/Drew High School Code
of Conduct. Violators will be subject to immediate review and investigation
and appropriate action will be taken.
Participation in school class experiences promotes successful student
learning. Class participation is part of the course grade: therefore,
regular punctual attendance is vital to success in school. Medical,
dental, and other appointments should be scheduled after school.
