San Dimas High School has high expectations in regards to the behavior of students. Students are expected to arrive to classes on time, stay attentive, be on task during class instruction, and work diligently towards graduation.
Whether in attendance during regular instruction, traveling off campus with sports teams or field trips, or attending after school activities, SDHS students are always expected to be respectful of fellow students and to follow the directions of teachers and staff members.
In instances where misbehavior occurs, San Dimas will apply a progressive discipline policy with the goal of changing behavior and encouraging students to make better choices in the future.  
Each teacher publishes classroom behavior guidelines in their individual classes. School wide rules of conduct are:  

● Be seated and ready to begin work at the tardy bell.
● Show respect to classmates, staff, teachers and personal property.
● Follow all teacher and staff member directions.
● Demonstrate academic integrity at all times.
● Stay on task during the entire school day.  

Progressive discipline consequences are issued when a student misbehaves. Those consequences may include teacher-student conferences, parent contact, teacher detentions, a disciplinary referral, campus or community service, Saturday School, suspension from class, in school suspension, out of school suspension, a referral to the student study team for review of the educational program placement, an administrative hearing to consider involuntary transfers and/or expulsion.
