At Alexis I. DuPont High School, we believe the student uniform allows us to establish the correct academic focus within the minds of our students. We are also sensitive to the diversity of our school community and understand the uniform can present financial challenges. Therefore, changes to the uniform have occurred that we consider to be more “student-friendly” and may not require our families to incur an additional financial burden as they may already own the newly added items. Furthermore, with these changes, we are expecting greater compliance from our students. Because, doing the little things well allows for great big things to happen!
