Policies and Procedures


AXIS International Academy (AXIS) believes that, as adults, we must model healthy and respectful communication for our students. AXIS is committed to promoting healthy communication among students, parents, teachers, and administrators and encourages AXIS community members to express any concerns directly with the individual involved so that the school’s focus can be kept on student learning. This process is designed to support prompt and equitable resolution of disagreements at the lowest possible faculty or administrative level. AXIS and the grievant will agree to keep the details of the grievance confidential where possible.  

Discipline Policy

The AXIS Board of Directors supports the vision and mission of AXIS, which is to provide all students the opportunity to achieve the knowledge, skills, and languages necessary to become thriving citizens of character in our local and global communities. Students should have the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge, and competencies in a nurturing and accountable school setting. Students should receive effective and engaging teaching, with differentiated curriculum, instruction, and assessment designed to address the needs of our diverse learners. Students have a right to attend schools that are safe and free from unnecessary disruption. The Board believes that proper student conduct, reinforced by an effective discipline program, is essential to create and maintain a positive school climate. This is the joint responsibility of students, staff, parents, and the community.
