A method that also applies to AC circuits is to move a magnet all the way through a loop connected to a volt meter and sum up all the measurement over time. (They should sum up to zero although the measurement errors may get in the way of a precise 0.)
If I understood your question correctly, then you want a simple experiment to demonstrate that magnetic monopoles cannot exist. The simplest way to explain this to a high schooler would be to actually break a small piece of magnet, and then make the student realize that the poles of the magnet haven't been 'split'; instead, both the pieces contain two poles. ...
