Preschool – 8th Grade
Oakwood has an official dress code and grooming standard in order to maintain a respectful and positive learning environment. Student dress and grooming should not distract from the educational environment and school activities. Uniforms promote a sense of identity with the school and among the students as a group. Uniforms also help eliminate the self-consciousness and social competition which fashion tends to encourage. The Oakwood Dress Code provides a structure that respects individualism, but also promotes a sense of community and togetherness. Oakwood partners with Lands’ End for uniform wear; however, families are welcome to shop elsewhere as long as items purchased fit the Oakwood uniform dress code requirements.
Policies for the Oakwood Dress Code fall into three categories:
- GENERAL: Applies to students AT ALL TIMES when on campus, as well as most off-campus, school-sponsored events.
- UNIFORMS: Applies to students on uniform dress days, ONLY.
- FREE DRESS: Applies to students on Free Dress days, ONLY, as well as select off-campus, school-sponsored events.
