To enable students to reach high academic standards, the school has put in place a dress code designed to reduce distractions and competitions. Implementing a simple, flexible, cost-effective dress code promotes student learning and increased academic instruction time.
Students who do not follow the dress code will be removed from class, and their parents will be called to pick them up from school. Interpretation of the Dress Code is at the principal and staff’s discretion and their decision is final.
