WHY DOES MONTGOMERY REQUIRE UNIFORMS?
Montgomery School believes strongly in the value of our students wearing uniforms to school. Across the country, more and more schools are adopting this approach, as it teaches the students to dress as part of the community, helps to diminish socio-economic differences between students, limits distractions and prepares them to come to school dressed to work and play hard.
The uniform is part of School policy. Students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade dress in the uniform appropriate for their grade level. Occasional exceptions occur, such as certain field trips and “Drop the Dress Code” days. Students will be notified in advance when these exceptions apply. In all cases of student dress, the principle of neat and clean will apply; clothes must fit properly and not have holes, frayed edges, or obvious safety pins. Parents will be called and asked to bring a change of clothes if a student is not dressed appropriately. Students will be held accountable to be in uniform by faculty and administrators.
HOW DO I ORDER UNIFORMS?

Then select the gender of the person you are ordering for. You can set up a profile for each of your children by saving this information for the next time you shop, or you can click on Shop Now. Then select the item you wish to order. Uniform shirts must have the Montgomery School logo as indicated, unless hidden under a tunic.
Items for physical education class are included in the selection for grades 4-8 only; these items may only be worn with the School logo, and only for PE class or as Spiritwear. These items may not be worn as part of the regular school uniform.
HOW CAN I ORDER SPIRITWEAR?
Montgomery Spiritwear is available online, all year long, and can be purchased by clicking on this link.
DRESS UP FRIDAYS
This is for chapel purposes, as the School gathers for all-School chapel every Friday morning, and on other special occasions. Middle School boys must wear a navy blazer and School tie with a white button-down dress shirt. Uniform shorts are acceptable during the warmer months (which will be defined at the discretion of the Middle School Head). In addition to the regular rules for shoes and socks, all Middle School girls must wear the Land's End pewter heather V-neck cardigan during the winter months, a white uniform shirt with school logo and a uniform skirt or skort . All Lower School students should wear white uniform shirts on Fridays.
On School photo days boys should be dressed in Dress Up Friday uniform attire (including long pants) and Lower School girls should wear their tunics (rather than the navy skort).
