Our school uniform is intended to be consistent with halacha and to reflect the importance of a serious academic environment. We have chosen a uniform that presents options and allows for some individual expression. It is our expectation that our students will make choices that demonstrate respect for the values inherent in this uniform. However, the faculty and administration must reserve the right to make decisions regarding some specifics such as footwear or accessories.
Unfortunately, students wearing clothing that is not consistent with our uniform will not be able to attend classes.
