Nile Valley School takes academics very seriously. Our standards and expectations are high. We work diligently to create an atmosphere where students feel safe and challenged to explore and think critically, to be respectful and kind to others, and to tap into their full intellectual potential. It’s hard work, but it produces results that parents and students alike appreciate in the long term.

We expect students to work hard at school and to do their homework. Homework is assigned based on the identified needs of the students.

All teachers have a system for tracking homework. Be sure to ask your child about that system. If anything is unclear, please consult the teacher. Teachers are encouraged to communicate with parents on a regular basis. Parents are expected to follow-up and ensure that homework is completed.

Learning Support

Students who are not succeeding academically will be required to participate in an Academic Recovery Plan. Each student will have different needs, so the program will be customized for each student. However, there are some requirements common to all students needing academic support. Those Include:

Homework: Students must complete and turn in all homework. The student’s work must show evidence that time and care was taken. At the teacher’s discretion, the student may be asked to stay after school up to 3 times per week to ensure the homework is being properly completed. Prior arrangements will be made if this is necessary. Homework must be completed at a satisfactory level or the student will be asked to do it again.

Extra Help: Nile Valley School will offer extra help to the student through the Learning Support program. It may be helpful also for parents to secure a qualified homework helper. A “tutor” is not necessary because the student will receive adequate instruction in the classroom and through learning support to understand the concepts. Students generally need someone at home to keep them accountable for the quality and consistency of their homework. Someone to answer questions as they arise is helpful.



Students who submit written work that is not their own are committing plagiarism and will normally receive a FAIL on the project or assignment. We expect students to ONLY hand in for marking their own original work.

It’s also important to note that students are expected to do their own work. Tutors, parents and friends should not do the work on their behalf. It is generally obvious to a teacher when the work did not come from the student. This will usually result in a fail mark and the student will be asked to redo the work himself. These are examples of academic dishonesty:

1. Plagiarism – submitting another person’s writing as one’s own.
2. Obtaining or illegally accepting a copy of a test or test key.
3. Giving or receiving test questions or answers to/from other students.
4. Copying from another student’s test or knowingly permitting another student to copy during a test.
5. Using materials or means which are not permitted during a test.
6. Copying – having someone other than the student prepare the student’s homework, paper, project, report or take home exam for which credit is given.
7. Permitting another student to copy one’s work or ideas.
8. Tampering with grades.
9. Engaging in any action intended to obtain credit for work that is not one’s own.
10. Impersonating another student to assist him academically.

Anyone caught engaging in any of these dishonest behaviors will (1) discuss it with the teacher who may assign a zero to the assignment or test; (2) discuss it with the parents; (3) discuss it with the administration who may then choose to issue a suspension.
