Dress Code

Dress Code:

AMS’ dress code is designed with the intent of providing
equity among genders and no longer disproportionately
targeting the female body. We also believe in shifting decision
making around the appropriateness of clothing to parents and
guardians. The school’s role in the dress code is to provide a
safe and inclusive learning environment.

A student whose attire is not appropriate for school will be
asked to change into P.E. or loaner clothes. Spare t-shirts
and/or sweats may be borrowed from the school office.
Students Must Wear:
  • A shirt with fabric in the front, back, on the sides and
    under the arms AND
  • Pants/jeans or the equivalent (i.e. shorts, dresses, skirts) AND
  • Shoes
Students May Wear:
  • Religious headwear
  • Hats facing forward or backward as long as face is
    visible at teacher discretion
  • Fitted pants, leggings, etc.
  • Tank tops and spaghetti straps
  • Athletic attire
  • Ripped jeans, as long as underwear and buttocks
    aren’t exposed
Students Cannot Wear:
  • Violent language or images
  • Images or language depicting drugs, alcohol or illegal
  • Hate speech, profanity, nudity or sexually explicit
  • Images or language that create a hostile/intimidating
    learning environment
  • Clothing that is transparent
  • Visible undergarments, except for straps
  • Swimsuits
  • Pajamas
  • Accessories that could be considered dangerous or used as a weapon
  • Hoodies; any item that obscures the face or ears should not be worn during class
AMS reserves the right to allow or disallow certain apparel
and accessories deemed inappropriate. The judgment of school
staff will be final.

● 2nd- warning and student changes their clothing
● 3rd- parent/guardian contact and student changes
