Uniform Policy

It is the responsibility of each student to use good judgment in one’s total appearance so that the attention of others is not distracted from the purpose of the school.  Cleanliness is a basic consideration.

No mode of student appearance will be considered proper for a school that distracts from or disrupts the classroom and/or school decorum.  The head of a school of the school makes the final decision of what is considered proper or improper appearance.

Several studies indicate that being able to identify ones’ students from outsiders is an important aspect of school safety.  Therefore, a mandatory school uniform policy will contribute to the overall well being of students and a more serious learning environment. This atmosphere will provide for improved behavior and will encourage students to experience a greater sense of school pride and belonging.

Any substantial complaint concerning the student dress code (including and limited to religious, economic, or other concerns) shall be dealt with by the school building administration.
