UNIFORM DRESS CODE

 

The AGS Uniform: Part of the developing tradition of AGS is the uniform dress code. The quality of appearance is related to a sound educational program.

Students not in uniform will be sent home, unless an adequate reason is provided.

  • At all times, students must look neat and respectable.
  • Summer: dark blue slacks/skirt; white shirt. Students may wear a plain white T-shirt underneath their uniform shirt. Students may not wear any T-shirts with lettering or images as their undershirt. School cap – dark blue with school logo.
  • Fall/Winter/Spring: dark blue slacks/skirt; white shirt; school tie; dark blue sweater, (or cardigan). The exact dates from which the school tie must be worn will be announced, varying from year to year, depending on the weather.
