Empowering Everyone to Engage in Education
Yokosuka Middle School Faculty and Staff believe all students are entitled to learn in a safe, positive and supportive environment allowing all to reach their highest academic and behavioral success. Classroom and school-wide expectations for behavior are based on our guiding principles. The five principles and supporting characteristics are based on the acronym P.R.I.D.E. The principles and characteristics are:
P - Preparation - Be prepared with materials, mindset and a positive attitude to participate fully.
R - Responsibility - Be responsible for my learning and the learning of those around me.
Behave and speak in a manner that demonstrates respect to other student, staff and visitors.
Be punctual to each class and designated activity.
Have and maintain the student planner
I - Integrity - Do the right thing even when no one is watching.
Be accountable for my actions and the consequences that follow.
Respect intellectual property rights when completing all assignments.
Respect the cultural diversity of our student body and host nation.
Respect personal property of others and public property of the school.
D - Diligence - Exhibit a willingness to do my best and never give up in all tasks.
Set behavior and academic goals.
Show effort and try even when the task is difficult.
Exhibit persistence and dedication to all tasks to achieve the end results.
E - Excellence - Push myself to achieve excellence in all I do!
All students should follow examples of behaviors promoted by the guiding principles at ALL times, including before school, at dismissal and all school sponsored events and trips. Dragon behavior represents the whole school as well as visitors in the host nation.
