Student Uniform and Appearance Code
Presentation is important as students are representing themselves, their family and their school. Taking pride in one’s appearance is an important virtue. It demonstrates self-respect and respect for those with whom you come in contact. As dress and appearance reflect attitudes, students should dress modestly and in good taste.
