High School Dress and Grooming Standards (Grades 9-12)
A student’s dress and general appearance should not be such that it draws undesirable
attention to the student, nor should dress and appearance detract or interfere with teaching
and learning in the classroom and on the campus. It is expected that all students shall
maintain their person and clothing in a modest, clean, and age-appropriate fashion
consistent with our dress code and compatible with the instruction program. In an effort
