According to High School administration, “It is important to positively recognize students for making good choices and decisions, and to showcase students as positive role models to other students in the building.”
 
The award was named and established at the time when there were Deans in the High School administration.
 
Staff members representing each curriculum area nominate a student each month for the Deans’ list. Students who are nominated receive a commemorative pen and award certificate, and are recognized at the monthly Deans’ breakfast.
 
The following are some criteria that guide teacher nominations:
  • Responsibility
  • Diligence/hard working behavior
  • Positive attitude towards classmates as well as staff
  • Kind, empathetic, or helpful behavior to another student
  • Helpful behavior to a staff member
  • Demonstrating student leadership on and off campus
  • Good behavior in structured and unstructured settings
