Dress Code

To enable students to reach high academic standards, the school has put in place a uniform dress code designed to reduce distractions and competitions. Implementing a simple, flexible, cost-effective dress code promotes student learning and increased academic instruction time. Interpretation of the Dress Code is at the principal and staff’s discretion, and their decision is final.


Personal Hygiene


The personal grooming of students should be in accord with the standards set by the uniform dress code. Students should be clean and neat when at school.
