Dress Code

The dress code is designed to ensure the health and safety of students and to avoid distractions to the educational process, while preserving the basic rights of individuals. Unsafe or inappropriate is defined as anything which could undermine the morale or endanger the physical well-being of a student. It is our belief that good taste and judgment are keys to proper attire and appearance.
