The purpose of PolyHonor is to give our students and faculty the opportunity to affirm their commitment to the essential principles of our Mission, Credo, Vision, and Philosophy and to recognize their role in shaping the community. Our intention is for PolyHonor to permeate the climate and culture of the entire school community and become one of the defining characteristics of a Poly education.
