Character Education

We are a character education school here at Maplebrook. In addition to the RISE character program, which is built into everything our students do, Maplebrook students also have the chance to participate in our Society of Honor, in community service opportunities, and in interfaith chapel services for holidays and special occasions.

Society of Honor

Maplebrook School’s Society of Honor is designed to recognize those students who have gone above and beyond in exhibiting, not only the Maplebrook core values as per the eight Pillars of Character and the School Honor Code, but an altruistic spirit as well.  As a student routinely follows the Maplebrook School Honor Code, that student has the opportunity to be nominated and elected to the Society of Honor.  Aside from earning one’s high school diploma, induction into Maplebrook’s Society of Honor is the highest honor a Maplebrook student can receive.
