CODE OF CONDUCT

Our school's code of conduct is based on the belief that there are values fundamental to the well-being of both the individual and society and that we are all responsible for the choices we make. We at OPS believe that the code encourages students to recognize and respect diversity and individual differences.
In the process, we want students to develop self-discipline, which should be considered as a core of personal activity.
