WACS Behavioral Expectations

Our teachers and staff are committed to creating a school environment that not only supports academic learning but also promotes students’ personal and social development.  At Western Academy we use Positive Behavior Support (PBS) as a tool for teaching our students appropriate behaviors at school.  Within this framework, teachers and staff use a system of rewards and consequences to manage student behavior.  To encourage appropriate behavior
and recognize students that demonstrate Stallion Strong qualities, students are rewarded through the use of school-wide, classroom, and individual incentives.  On the contrary, teachers and staff may implement a variety of consequences such as time-out, loss of privileges, reflective assignments, or detentions, to discourage inappropriate behavior.
To help students remember our universal guidelines, we use the slogan Stallion Strong which calls for students to Be Safe, Work Hard, and Be Respectful.  Stallion Strong behavior is encouraged daily by teachers and staff in all school settings.
Be Safe
Work Hard
Be Respectful
Please take this opportunity to talk to your child about the behavioral expectations at school and the importance of continuing to demonstrate Stallion Strong behaviors.  With your continued support and involvement, Western Academy Charter School will remain a top-rated school where students can excel.
