School Uniform

A student’s appearance, self-respect, and performance tend to be correlated with one another.  In addition, uniforms tend to lessen material competition, thereby freeing the students to focus on academics and higher social values.  Uniforms also serve as a source of identity, characterizing the principles, values and beliefs unique to Catholic Schools in general, and St. Edith School in particular.  Therefore, we require uniforms and hair styling in accord with well-accepted tastes to meet St. Edith’s standards.
