O'Neal Upper School Signs Honor Code

O’Neal Upper School held its annual Honor Code Signing Ceremony recently. Middle and Upper School students publicly pledge to adhere to its standards, whereby they work and play accordingly in the classroom, on the playground, in a sport or on stage. In keeping with the School's Honor Code, there are no locks on lockers. Special honor code ceremonies are held each year in the Middle and Upper School.

Honor Council Advisor David Williamson addressed the Upper School Student Body about viewing the honor code not as a list of things they won’t do, but instead as the fabric of this community that gives everyone all of the freedoms that they enjoy every day.  He mentioned past failings he personally had experienced in high school and how his friends and community stepped up to support him, trusting that although he had made mistakes, his intentions were always true.  In these situations, the honor code provided a path forward to redemption, and his past behaviors of acting in an honorable way made it easier for there to be that communal trust. 

Honor Council Member Jalen Lindsey also addressed the students. Please see the video below.
The ceremony culminated with all students and faculty signing the honor code, where the signed document will be featured in Meyer Hall.
