Behavior Philosophy

All students at North Scott Junior High School are expected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner.  Discipline is important to our daily environment to insure the safety, teaching, learning, and daily operation of our school.  It is the goal of the faculty and staff to have students control their own behavior in order to become self-disciplined individuals.  North Scott Junior High School uses the foundations of the Boys Town Education Model, a set of teaching techniques we use to teach children new skills, self-empowerment, and how to build relationships to help ensure a safer and more effective school.
