Today’s Anniversary: The United States Constitution

It's September 17, and the United States Constitution was signed in Philadelphia on this date in 1787.  The National Constitution Center has resources for celebrating Constitution Day and is a great place to visit if you're in Philadelphia.  The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and a good comparison is the American School student handbook.  Just as the United States Constitution provides guidelines and rules for being a United States citizen, the American School student handbook provides guidelines and rules for you to follow while you are an American School student.  The guidelines and rules are in effect for students in our accredited middle school program, accredited high school program and independent study high school program.  It is important that students follow the guidelines because doing so will give them the best chance for academic success.  If you have questions or concerns about the student handbook, please let us know.  We are happy to answer your questions and help you do your best.
