School Uniform

Benefits of School Uniforms

Uniforms are practical, economical, reinforce a school’s traditions and educational vision—and they make it a snap to get ready for school!

The pressure tied to fashion in schools can be intense. That’s where a uniform comes in. With a uniform program, we eliminate the socioeconomic tension driven by fashion trends and high-end brands; only some families can afford, while increasing safety on campus and distinguishing students within their community.

Uniform Exchange

Parent Club maintains a “uniform exchange” option and throughout the year makes gently used uniforms available at no cost. Please contact the school office to take a look at what is available.

In keeping with the school’s climate of dignity and respect, students are expected to dress appropriately for the learning environment. Due to the overwhelming requests, we will be transitioning from Khaki to Navy bottoms for the 21-22 school year. Since this is a transition year, during the 21-22 school year, middle school students may still wear Khaki if parents have already purchased this color.
