School Uniform Information

Parochial and private schools have a long history of using school uniforms to project an atmosphere of uniformity, pride, loyalty and equality among the student population.

There has always been an image of professionalism associated with having students in a school uniform program. It provides for a more businesslike approach to learning, removing distractions normally caused by the latest designer fashions sweeping the nation.

School uniforms also tend to involve students more, to make them part of a "team" at the school. This is not so much as to erase their individuality, but to include everyone on the same level as far as image and dress is concerned.

An important factor in school uniforms has been cost. With fashions constantly changing, parents have always felt the pressure (from their children) to provide them with the latest peer-pleasing designs. Uniforms reduce the cost of keeping up since they remain the same conservative style. And their cost, in relation to fashion clothing, is significantly lower.

The use of uniforms at school as opposed to the latest fashions, help students avoid ridicule, embarrassment, or abuse from others over the 'have and have-not' stigma.

Based on the long and proven history of the school uniforms in the private and public schools it has shown an increase in positive academic results. The mandatory uniform program in schools across the country is developing and gaining support from all parties- students, parents, administrators and the public.
