To support the honor system and the values inherent to it, Gill St. Bernard’s has established a student/faculty Honor Board in the Upper School. This Board hears individual cases concerning specific disciplinary allegations and, in a larger context, serves to educate the community about the importance of our core values. The Honor Board is comprised of the following people: the Dean of Student Life; one additional representative from the Office of Student Life; the Upper School Director; a grade-level dean; five senior students chosen by the Office of Student Life. Student members of the Honor Board are selected after a process that involves a formal application, an essay, an interview, and a review of the applicant’s experience to date at GSB. On and off campus, members are expected to model the school’s core values: Courage, Integrity, Respect, Compassion and Excellence.
In addition to impeccable academic resumes, all of the student members of the Honor Board have been actively engaged in and make critical contributions to all aspects of life at Gill St. Bernard’s School.
