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

These uniforms are the same for boys and girls, green mesh shorts with the school logo on the left side (required) and a white PE shirt with logo (recommended). The uniform polo shirt or an acceptable Spirit Wear t-shirt is also acceptable. All students, regardless of grade, must wear gym shoes during Physical Education class.
Many of our Free Dress days throughout the year are themed for the holidays or fun activities like our Talent Show. We ask students to wear appropriate, neat clothing which may include jeans, athletic pants or appropriate shorts/skirts. Shirts may include t-Shirts, golf shirts and team shirts or jerseys. We even have PJ themed days!
Clothing that is not allowed includes miniskirts, shirts with spaghetti straps, tank tops and t-shirts with offensive or inappropriate language or content or any torn or ripped clothing, bicycle pants, tattered jeans or pants, clothes that are skintight or are excessive in size, low riding pants or low-cut tops. Bare midriffs are unacceptable. Hats are not allowed. The rule of thumb is that if you need to ask if it’s appropriate, it probably isn’t appropriate.
