The Honor Code
Omega Middle School students take a deep dive into the emotional and moral domain at the very onset of the school year. Before the learning journey can truly begin, students and teachers must first sit down to discuss what it truly means to be an Omegan. As Omegans these students have notable privileges including a separate campus, self-directed learning, electives, frequent class trips, public presentations of their academic and artistic work, and intentional rights of passage experiences. Before entrusting these privileges to their students, teachers make space for a heart-centered conversation about what it takes to create safety, integrity, and honor within the Omega community. Out of these discussions the Honor Code is born and each student is asked to sign their name to indicate their investment and dedication to being an honorable Omegan. Parents are a key component in the success of the honor code and are asked to sign the class code in addition to the students.
