US Dress Code

At King, we work to prepare students to thrive in a rapidly changing world. We recognize that one's attire is a method of expressing and exploring personal identity. Simultaneously, our dress code acknowledges the fact that attire is also a function of space and time and reflects one's connection to the community. As such, we offer multiple standards of dress that mirror various environments that students may encounter.

DRESS CODE VENDOR

With the exception of the plaid kilt and navy/khaki skirts (access Lands' End purchase store here), families are free to purchase any brand of clothing, provided they meet the standards outlined by division.

RELAXED STANDARD OF DRESS

PROHIBITED ITEMS AT ANY TIME:

  • Hats
  • Flip-flops or open-toed shoes
  • Rips, holes, or frayed edges
  • See-through or gauze-like clothing
  • Tops that expose shoulders or midriff
