There is onlyone general rule at Kallista School and that is do what is right. We have specific procedures for encouraging students to maintain this general rule. When a student’s self discipline is lacking, teachers and principal have to exercise authority to generate appropriateness of behaviour among students.
We will not force a studen to participate in our program. When a student coomes to our school, he/she is given a choice to accept the entire program or to reject it. There is no middle road. If a student finds elements of the program unacceptable, then he/she may elect not to be here. It is poissible that if a student will refuse to cooperate with us and half-heartredly participates in the program, eventually the student will be dismissed from school (please refer to Dicscipline Chart)
