Escuela Americana is a college preparatory international school which seeks to provide a sound basis for life as a responsible member of society. Our educational program is built on high quality standards and the commitment to help each child develop his or her potential. Escuela Americana offers a bilingual program embracing the cultures of El Salvador and the United States.
Escuela Americana recognizes and values that students come to the school with a variety of backgrounds, nationalities, talents, interests, and learning styles. It is these qualities that allow the school to create, celebrate, and continue to provide an educational environment that fosters the capacity to explore, question, and discover relationships between fields of knowledge and experience. Escuela Americana also emphasizes the intangible social and cultural values the students receive by interacting in a bicultural setting. Escuela Americana believes that education is life, not merely a preparation for it.
Code of Conduct
The Escuela Americana’s Code of Conduct is the foundation upon which we build our lives in this learning community. The Code drives our actions and our policies in achieving our educational mission. The Code of Conduct is not, however, a disciplinary system. It is a set of expectations and values that frame our lives together in our school.
We proudly commit ourselves to uphold:
honesty, responsibility and respect,
Reject meanness; ease other’s pain,
Listen to others; work together,
Avoid offensive behavior,
Use appropriate language,
Tell the truth; be genuine.
Overcome the temptation to steal or cheat;
Decide when to follow and when to lead;
Be a positive influence to others,
Be patient, consider consequences, and
Care for our school and community.
It is and shall remain a privilege, not a right, to be an Escuela Americana community member, therefore I accept, understand, and agree to live under the Code of Conduct spirit. If my behavior puts my well-being or other’s well-being at risk, or has a negative consequence for our Escuela Americana, the school has a right to intervene.
Rooted in the Code of Conduct and an important part of Escuela Americana’s history is the Honor Code. The EA Honor Code is a clear statement of fundamental expectations that form the foundation of academic and personal integrity. Compliance with the EA Honor Code is a fundamental expectation for all EA community members, and failure to comply will result in discipline sanctions being imposed.
The EA Honor Code states:
I will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor will I tolerate those who do.
