Dress Code

Uniforms improve the classroom-learning
environment by:

  • Helping students concentrate on their schoolwork by setting a tone for serious study
  • Removing distractions created by socioeconomic differences and modern fashion
  • Instilling students with discipline

Uniforms build citizenship and a sense of community in our children by:

  • Building self-esteem, self-respect, and school spirit among students
  • By creating the distinction of being part of a group
  • Maintaining a good school image in the community by a neat appearance
  • Providing a visible and public symbol of commitment to school improvement and reform

Uniforms create a safe learning environment by:

  • Helping school officials recognize intruders who may come into the school
