SCHOOL DRESS CODE

Uniform Policy

In our efforts to create an environment which encourages our students to focus on academic, spiritual, moral and social growth, standards of dress have been established at St. John the Baptist Catholic Montessori School. Students are expected to come to school in the appropriate St. John the Baptist Catholic Montessori School uniform specified in the tables below. The purpose of this uniform policy is to:

 
  • reflect Christian values such as humility, simplicity, and modesty
  • emphasize the value and purpose of education
  • decrease peer pressure and competition
  • decrease focus on appearance by having uniformity among students
  • promote school identity
  • promote comfort and utility
  • promote cost effectiveness

 

DRESS CODE AND PERSONAL APPEARANCE

The dress code provides a standard for our children that fosters an environment of Christian values, learning, and respectful behavior. Final decisions regarding the school uniform rest with the principal/administration.
