We encourage students toward a life governed by the values of personal integrity. All students must pledge to uphold our Code of Honour:
All violations of the Code of Honour are subject to review by the Discipline Committee.
A Code of Conduct defines the expected conduct for both students and staff so that all who share in the School environment can do so in safety and with the confidence that they will be treated as valued individuals. This Code of Conduct is intended to benefit parents, students and staff members. It is essential that parents know what behaviour the School expects so that this behaviour can be reinforced at home. Parents should be prepared to discuss the Code of Conduct with their child to ensure there is understanding and acceptance. Parents need to know what consequences will follow if their child breaches the Code of Conduct. Students need to understand the Code as it establishes the ground rules for their daily interaction with other students with teachers and other staff members.
Good attendance is vital to the learning process and is an essential component of every course and activity. Students are expected to attend all classes regularly and punctually. It is the responsibility of the student and his/her family to inform the school about planned absences. The School must also be informed as soon as possible of absences that result from unforeseen circumstances. Note: "Absence" means any absence that occurs on a scheduled school day.
Unauthorized early leave before exams and other breaks is not permitted. The School has given considerable attention to planning breaks that accommodate the needs of families, even taking into account students who are travelling great distances to be at the School.
Arriving for classes and other School activities prepared and on time shows a positive commitment to learning. Students must be punctual. Students are expected to bring the necessary materials/equipment to every class or activity.
A student who arrives late for School must report to the Receptionist to be signed in.
Any student found responsible for incidents of damage, abuse or theft of School property or the property of others will be subject to payment of restitution.
Any student who commits a serious breach of School Rules or is guilty of repeated infractions which may result in expulsion or suspension will appear before a Discipline Committee appointed by the Principal.
The School will employ a range of disciplinary actions guided by what is in the best interests of the student and the School. Any of the following disciplinary actions may be recommended by the Discipline Committee and/or applied by the Principal:
Sanctions: Various sanctions proportionate to the offence and suitable for the purpose of correcting the student's behaviour.
Suspension: Suspension for whatever length of time the Principal deems to be appropriate. The student is responsible for all assignments and tests missed during this time.

The School expects that a student will be neat and clean in dress at all times and that clothing is in good repair and appropriate to the activity or occasion.

Bharath Montessori l School provides education programs from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The Kindergarten program is based upon Montessori education principles and practices. Grades 1 to 8 are standard education programs using the scholastic & non-scholastic curriculum . The curriculum is also used for the High School program from Grades 9 to 12 providing students with the academic qualifications to enter universities.
The School provides a Guidance Counsellor Program. Its goals are: To strengthen, support and allow students to realize more fully their potential to become "the complete person, the well-rounded citizen", where success is measured equally by personal growth in the areas of a healthy Mind, Heart, Spirit and Body.
