Academic Integrity

Academic work afford us the opportunity to develop not only our knowledge and perseverance, but to embody our school’s core values in very practical ways. Fundamental to the academic work students do at JKFZ Cambridge International School is an expectation that students will make choices that reflect integrity and responsible behavior.

JKFZ CIS believes that upholding the highest standards of academic honesty and integrity is the work of the whole school. Whether students are preparing for a class presentation, project, lab report, paper or examinations, they should make sure that they avoid engaging in cheating and plagiarism.
