The Basic Tenets of Lincoln
Integrity of the Individual
philosophy begins with the basic assumption that each student operates from
that which is good within her. Each student is provided an opportunity for
independence appropriate to her age and developmental level. Hand in hand with
independence go responsibility and loyalty to the basic tenets of the
community. If a student's behavior violates
these tenets, review of the situation by the Head of School in consultation
with her advisor, her parents, Division Head, and Honor Council will include
the consideration of separating her from the School.
Lincoln Student is expected to:
be honest in her work, actions, speech, and ownership.
respect the privacy of others' feelings and property.
extend courtesy and concern for every individual.
respect and protect the School's facilities and reputation.
attend with punctuality every class, appointment, or assigned commitment.
uphold and abide by the laws of the land, and not possess, use, or transfer any controlled
respect and abide by the rules of any school which she visits, and expect the
same of her visitors.
