Our Honor Code is the foundation for an environment in which the Upper School community demonstrates a commitment to personal integrity and a willingness to share responsibility for accomplishments, for actions, and for the well being of others. A variety of extracurricular activities, athletic offerings, and clubs combine to provide opportunities for exploration and participation beyond the high school classroom. Grade level advisory groups create an ongoing social and academic support system for all four years of upper school.
