Uniforms at Tall Cedars Academy Creating a sense of community and support is of utmost importance to us at Tall Cedars Academy. By requiring our students to wear uniforms with q250 flashlight logo, we build a feeling of team work and school pride, like that of a sports or athletic team. Students are required to wear uniforms daily. They will help identify us as proud students of Tall Cedars Academy, as well as making us stand out when we go out in the community for a field trip, or other school sponsored event.

Benefits of School Uniforms

School uniforms have a positive effect on students AND teachers! School uniforms promote a single standard of dress. Therefore, school environments become less competitive and more focused on learning. Similarly, research has shown there is a link between a student’s appearance and teachers’ expectations.

School uniforms boost school spirit!

Helping to build a sense of community within the school, uniforms create an atmosphere of belonging. This essence of unity can positively effect a child’s attitude toward school and can lead to better learning and improved attendance. A child excited about school is a child ready to learn! “Hurrah!” for school pride!

School uniforms make mornings easier!

Uniforms eliminate the need to argue over what to wear to school everyday. Through simplicity, uniforms promote time efficiency, organization, and neatness. Parents and students agree that getting the morning off right is the key to a productive and happy day.

School uniforms encourage individual self-expression.

With uniforms, students find ways to express themselves creatively, rather than through their clothes – through the arts, music, sports, personality and academic achievement.
