Student Dress Code
All AACMS students are expected to adhere to the Student Dress Code outlined below

Any form of dress that is unsafe, disrupts school, or detracts from the learning process is not acceptable. Clothing must allow students a full range of motion – sitting, bending, reaching, running – without requiring perpetual readjustment. 


Students in violation of the dress code will be required to wear clothing provided by the school until their parents provide appropriate clothing.


Examples of inappropriate dress include, but are not limited to the following:


  • Hats and caps, Hoods worn over the head, Sunglasses worn inside,
  • Articles of clothing that reference drugs, alcohol, tobacco products, weapons, obscenities, sexual connotations, or that contain derogatory statements regarding: gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation 
  • Low riding baggy jeans and shorts, Pants so low as to expose undergarments
  • Chains hanging from pants, heavy chains, dog chains, choker collars
  • Clothing or insignia depicting or related to violence, gangs, or hate levels
  • Tank tops with a strap of less than 2 inches (3-finger width), halter tops, tube tops, cutoff shirts, crop shirts, sheer tops, mesh tops, low-cut tops, bare midriffs, bare backs, muscle shirts, half-shirts
  • Undershirts and under-shorts as outer garments; no pajamas (tops or bottoms!)
  • No excessively short shorts, skirts, or dresses.
  • Garments worn in such a manner as to expose underwear (undergarments must not be seen – pants are to be pulled up to the waist)
  • See-through clothing
  • Excessively ripped, torn or frayed garments
  • Footwear must be worn at all times; Sneakers must be worn for PE


The administration reserves the right to make a decision regarding the appropriateness of student dress, including the display of anything that may appear gang related.
