Cheating is covered under the Academic Honesty policy of the MGHS Student Handbook.  

In short, it is expected that all coursework represent the original efforts of the individual student.  All forms of academic dishonesty can result in disciplinary action, as outlined in the policy.  

MGHS provides a number of resources to help students and parents recognize and avoid instances of academic dishonesty.  

Turn-it-In is an online submission program that helps students and teachers to determine the originality of a submitted work.  MGHS students are provided with accounts to the valuable tool and teachers may require assignment submission through it.

Plagiarism: A Student Guide, was created by the MGHS library staff to offer students tools and "habits of thinking" that help them avoid accidental plagiarism in today's information rich environment.  The guide acts as a companion to numerous research projects during which students are directly instructed on the concepts of intellectual responsibility, copyright, and citation.
