For All Grades Except Toddlers
Toddler school attire:
- Uniform not required, but OK
- All other guidelines apply
- Cartoon character is a distraction
Our Uniform Policy
All school attire must be navy blue, royal blue, or white; skirts, skorts, and jumpers in the school plaid or solid navy. The plaid design may be purchased through Dennis Uniform Store, Pattern: Douglas Plaid. (See details below.) The Main Office does have a limited supply of used uniforms available.
Uniforms must be worn at all times in the classrooms, on campus, and on field trips except on designated days.

Many students don’t end up needing to buy new uniforms, because enough of them show up on our school’s “for sale” rack of uniforms that older students have grown out of. The cost is $5/item of clothing.
If your child has outgrown his or her uniform, bring it to the office to be used by other students. You can also find your child’s next uniform size on the rack. If you’ve donated, then you can swap the too small size for the correct size.
White Shirts and Navy Pants
Girls and boys can wear pants. (Girls can also wear plaid jumpers, skirts, or skorts.)
Plain white shirts and navy blue pants are available at many stores, examples include Target, Walmart, JCPenney, The Children's Place, GAP, Gymboree, Lands End, and so on. (Please do NOT get “cargo pants.”)
Tip: Many parents have found that for polos, “piqué” fabric doesn’t pill as much as other fabrics, so it looks nice longer.
Please check the "Student Handbook" first, to be sure that what you purchase meets the Montessori Academy uniform guidelines. For example, shorts must be long - 1” above the knee.
