APA is a uniformed school. The parents and faculty of APA School have agreed that it would be in the best interests of the children to adopt a Unified Uniform Dress Code. A uniform policy improves the learning environment. We expect that our students dress and groom in an appropriate manner that will not interrupt the educational environment uniforms that is suitable.

School uniforms are also mandatory for all students on every away field trip and when representing American Preparatory Academy in any type of on or off campus event.

    WHY SCHOOL UNIFORMS?? If we learn to follow simple rules and everything will be much easier!!


    Safety

    • School uniforms promoting safety in direct and subtle ways is one of the strongest reasons for implementing a school uniform policy. Students all wearing uniforms allows intruders to be readily identified. School uniforms also indirectly prevent theft as there is less or nothing to steal from another student wearing the exact same clothing. An indirect psychological effect is that there is a stronger sense of safety in the student's mind in sameness and in numbers.

    Equality

    • The notion of equality from uniforms applies towards socio-economic equality. A school uniform reinforces a popular teaching to children: "Everyone is born equal." Using this basis, uniform policies can suppress superiority/inferiority complexes and promotes a student as a person rather than his or her belongings. Uniform promotes school spirit; it builds oneness and instills the value of community to students.

    • School is a place mandated for learning. Uniforms are a way to keep students' minds focused in class, in addition to eliminating other distractions such as cell-phones and non-school items. Additionally, uniform policies also have requirements such as proper haircut and overall neatness. By students having an accepted and clean appearance at all times, it allows for a stronger sense of order and focus in school activities.
