The Madison Prep Dress Code is designed with modesty, simplicity, safety, efficiency, and comfort in mind. The Dress Code applies to students on campus before, during, and after school.
The whole issue of fashion competition among peers is immediately diffused when a school dress code is put in place. There will be no contests over who can wear the shirt with the rudest slogan on it. This sort of thing is distracting to students, and it takes needed attention away from the day's lessons. Slovenliness will simply not be accepted, because sloppy dress leads to sloppy work habits and sloppy thinking.
And to those who say that a uniform robs students of their individuality, we say that it challenges students to express themselves in other, more meaningful ways.
