  • "behavior" is correct. The sentence itself is not natural. I'd guess the source material is low quality

Behaviours sounds very strange here. I would use behaviour instead.

Overall this sentence is weirdly structured. Behaviour is not something you usually "have". The sentence is better written as:

Middle school students should behave (well) during daily school life.

Or if you wanted to use behaviour as a noun:

Middle school students should show good behaviour during daily school life.

Other verbs are available instead of "show" such as "exhibit" or "exemplify".
