Respect: JMCS students treat all others as they themselves wish to be treated—and at all times with respect and dignity. We practice the highest standards of safety in everything that we do.
Focus on Achieving High Standards: JMCS students set high but realistic goals, and are focused on achieving them. We come to school to learn, and to help others learn as well. We take responsibility for our own success, welcome the challenges we face, and help others achieve.
Code of Honor: JMCS students are honest and expect others to be honest. We tell the truth, while being sensitive to the feelings of others. We accept credit only for the work we do and the contributions we make to our teams. We follow the laws, rules and regulations of our school, our programs, and our communities.
Maintenance of Student-Achievement Plan:Each JMCS student works with their teachers to create and maintain a high quality student-achievement plan that is well suited to his or her individual needs, and that accurately reflects the educational and vocational progress that they make.
Rights of Privacy: JMCS students and staff respect the rights of each to privacy, including the privacy of school records. The school will share student information with non-school personnel only after receiving permission from the student to do so.

You must remain in good standing with your program and with Muir in order to receive these services. By following program and classroom rules, you will remain in good standing. If you leave your program for any reason, you must receive permission from the program and the Muir teacher to return to the Muir classroom.
You May Ask Muir Management for Help.If at any time you do not feel you are receiving the help you need, you may file a complaint with Muir’s Executive Director and the Muir Board of Directors. Your teacher will have a copy of the complaint form, and you can request one from Muir’s Executive Director by calling him, toll free, at 1-888-748-2677.
