Montgomery School believes strongly in the value of our students wearing uniforms to school for several reasons. Wearing a uniform saves time and reduces stress by eliminating the difficult decision about what to wear each day. It has also been proven that uniforms help reduce distractions so students can focus on their schoolwork, which increases their academic performance. Many of our graduates attend secondary schools with similar uniform policies; so wearing a uniform in lower and middle school gives our students the opportunity to prepare for what’s ahead.
The uniform is part of School policy. 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.
