Does Thornton Middle School have a dress code policy?
Yes, Thornton Middle does have a dress code policy for all students.
Why School Uniforms?
- School uniforms help students focus on their most important task, learning. By eliminating the daily distractions on unregulated school clothing, as well as the peer pressure associated with clothing, uniforms set the tone for a proper work attitude in the classroom, reduce behavior problems, and improve student performance.
- School uniforms help to make the campus safer by eliminating clothing used to intimidate or conceal contraband. In addition, uniforms make it easier for school officials to identify any non-students and outsiders.
- School uniforms are less expensive than other types of clothing and cost significantly less than what most parents pay for unregulated school clothing.
- A standard of dress enhances school spirit, good self-image and school unity. Just as an athletic team’s uniforms promote unity and spirit, so can a school uniform.
