School Uniform

Dress Code

Research shows a direct correlation between students' attire and their school behavior, attitude, and achievement.  Millikin's Dress Code plays a key role in maintaining a school environment that is safe, free of distraction, and supportive of the business of education.

  • Students and staff are expected to maintain high standards of conduct and appearance.  Cleanliness, health, and safety are guides to appropriate school attire.
  • A student's clothing and appearance should not be of such extremes as to draw undue attention to the child or interfere with the teaching and learning in the classroom.  If the teacher feels clothing is a disruption or a distraction, the student may be asked to wait in the office for a €œchange of clothing€.
