The Deans’ List award was named and established at the time when there were Deans in the High School administration. The Dean’s List was established to recognize high school students who demonstrate positive student attributes, make good choices and decisions, and who serve as role models through their attitudes and actions. Each month, staff members representing each curricular area nominate students for this recognition. Students are invited to attend a Deans’ Breakfast given in their honor where their actions are recognized. Students receive a certificate of accomplishment in addition to a commemorative pen. The student characteristics that are considered by the staff in making their nominations include the following:
  • Responsibility
  • Diligence and perseverance in school work
  • Positive attitudes towards classmates and teachers
  • Kindness and empathy for fellow classmates
  • Helpfulness to teachers and staff
  • Leadership on and off campus
  • Exemplary behavior
