Student Uniforms


August 17, 2016

Dear Parents,

Our number one job at Malcolm X Shabazz High School is to provide your child with a quality education and a positive learning experience in a safe environment. We work each day to ensure that students are successful. We ask that you help your child be successful here at Malcolm X Shabazz High School by supporting our school uniform policy. We believe the school uniform policy has a positive impact on students’ learning and behavior in and around the school, serves to unite students, increases school pride, and eliminates class barriers that develop when some students cannot afford expensive name-brand clothing. We firmly believe that if our students are dressed for school in clothing consistent with our standard dress code, they will be prepared for work in the classrooms. To that end, please read below to clarify what the standard uniform is to ensure that your child is in the correct uniform at the start of the new school year.

All Malcolm X Shabazz High School students are required to wear the school uniform. All students will receive one free shirt at student orientation.
