The Master’s Upper School

Philosophy of Discipline

“At The Master’s School, we guide and expect students to exercise personal responsibility and to engage in behavior that reflects high moral and Christian standards informed by Biblical principles and our core values of truth, integrity, and excellence.”

Discipline Consequences

“Certain infractions will result in one or more infraction points. Infraction points are cumulative over the course of each semester. Students who earn 10 infraction points will be required to serve an afterschool detention. Thereafter, students will serve a detention for each successive 5 infraction points accumulated. As an alternative to detention, or to avoid detention, students may engage in a service to the community to work off infraction points.”

If your child is facing suspension, discipline or expulsion from a private or public school in Connecticut, your child has rights. You should protect those rights by hiring an experienced education law attorney. Often, but not always, disciplinary charges may be accompanied by an arrest or criminal investigation. The sooner you hire a lawyer, the better off your child will be in terms of ensuring the protection of rights, and the ultimate outcome. Your child will achieve the best outcome with an experienced Connecticut Expulsion Attorney, who can try to reduce the expulsion to a stipulated agreement or dismissal of charges altogether. The experienced Connecticut Expulsion Law attorneys at Maya Murphy, P.C. can help you and your child navigate the difficult and emotional process of an expulsion proceeding.

When a child violates a school policy – even if off school grounds – the violation can sometimes rise to the level of an expulsion from private or public school. An expulsion can negatively impact a child’s educational and emotional success. It can also sometimes affect college admissions if not handled by an experienced Connecticut Education lawyer familiar with handling expulsions and suspensions.

At Maya Murphy, P.C. we only represent students and families, we never represent school districts against students. We are available 7 days a week to answer questions; if it is important to you, it is equally important to us. We can assist your child with any education related needs including special education, suspension, discipline, expulsion, and criminal or juvenile criminal charges.
