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.

The Right Way to Dress

To enable students to reach high academic standards, we've put in place a dress code designed to reduce distractions and competition. Implementing a simple, flexible, cost-effective dress code promotes student learning and increased academic instruction time.

Common Dress Issues

Sometimes when we're in a hurry we overlook some of the details. A few of the frequent issues include the color of socks, the type of shoes being worn, and non-approved pullovers and pants.
