Respect for the Rights of Others
Every right you have has an obligation attached. Your rights must be balanced against the rights of others, and their rights must be balanced against yours. The purpose of the school and the requirements of the educational process must be weighed in deciding who has a right to do what and what behavior needs to be corrected. That is why our society has laws and why a school has rules. However, if you are one of those students who wants to take full advantage of your rights and opportunities at this school, while at the same time respecting the rights of others, we at Compadre High School will support and help you. Please see Compadre School Rules.
Responsibility for your own actions
You will be held responsible only for the things that you do or fail to do. What others do or not do is of little importance in determining whether or not you have accepted your responsibility as a student and citizen of Compadre Academy. If you choose to follow bad examples set by a few of the other students, you will be held responsible for your actions and your actions only. Your first responsibility is to be prepared and to accept the consequences of your actions.
It is the belief of the faculty and administration that school price, morale and image are influenced by the general appearance of our students.

Shoes will be worn at all times according to Arizona State Law.What is inappropriate dress?Clothing which is marked or imprinted with obscene, vulgar, profane, racially or sexually suggestive messages, or which promote the use of alcoholic beverages or illegal substances are not appropriate dress for school. Clothing which for any reason is disruptive to the educational process is also inappropriate and parents may be called in to provide appropriate clothing. Dress, jewelry and other accessories that present risk to the health, safety and general welfare of the students, or which express obscenities, immodestly expose the chest, abdomen, genital areas, legs or buttocks are prohibited.
