About Dupo Junior / Senior High

Dupo High School Preamble

1. I will at all times treat my fellow students in the same manner I expect them to treat me, having full respect for their property and rights.

2. I will intelligently follow the leadership of all properly elected student officers and abide by such decisions as they have been empowered to make by the will of the majority.

3. I will respect the authority of my teachers. I will make a special effort to be helpful and cooperative at all times when a substitute teacher is in charge, for I realize a substitute teacher is in fact my guest.

4. I will make every effort to protect my school property and maintain its appearance, for I appreciate the fact that my school is frequently judged by its appearance and the surrounding grounds.

5. I will neither give help nor receive help from a fellow student during a test or examination. I will make sure that all work submitted as a part of test or examination is honest in every respect.

6. I will do my best to do my own homework at all times, for I realize that homework is a means for me to learn. Any help I seek in accomplishing my school-work assignments will be for the purpose of increasing my understanding and will not include copying from another student's work or having anyone else do my work for me.

7. I will do my best at all times outside of school to act in such a manner that it can only bring honor to my home and school.
