Uniform Policy

All students must come to school in the CBR uniform every day. We have a required school uniform for several very important reasons:

  1. Uniforms reduce distractions and clothing competition. A student spending time discussing and evaluating what others are wearing can distract from focus on learning. Wearing uniforms eliminates this distraction.
  2. Uniforms unite us as a community. When you look at a group of students in the school uniform, it is a powerful visual statement of our community. Students make a commitment when they put on the CBR uniform to live up to the school’s high expectations.
  3. Uniforms look professional. Students look neat when they arrive to school with shirts tucked into their pants. The students come mentally prepared for school and “dressed for work.” A required dress code or uniform is common in the adult workplace and the careers our students will one day pursue.
  4. Uniforms help make us all equal.  No one feels embarrassed or uncomfortable about their clothes.
