Memorial has adopted a school improvement goal that all students will demonstrate academic integrity through their knowledge and application of appropriate practices in academic work and assessments, writing, speaking, use of media, and use of technology. Academic integrity includes honesty in citing sources, sharing work on assignments only when permission is given and prohibits any kind of cheating on assignments and assessments. Academic integrity also charges us to demonstrate responsible stewardship of our gifts and a strong work ethic.
