WHY UNIFORMS?

High Point Academy | Spartanburg, SC

 

Research supports the idea of less social stereotyping when children are all dressed in like fashion. As a school, we believe uniforms benefit the child socially and academically. Uniforms promote a sense of community and school pride and keep the focus on academics and not attire. Uniforms are also more economical for families. School uniforms are designed to stand up to everyday wear and repeated washing, so most parents will find that they can get away with buying a few sets.
