Dress Code

Dress Code 

During the intial Arco Iris Charter process, the Arco Iris School Board voted in favor of a mandatory school dress code. The founders wanted the best for their children; high academic standards, global citizenship and a safe, learning environment for every student. Research has shown that schools requiring school uniforms increase safety by identifying trespassers, reduce social and economic status by promoting equality, and improve academic performance by increasing student’s attention toward their studies.

Arco Iris respects and honors all religious beliefs. If your religion dictates a certain type of dress (ex: head cover, scarves, etc.), please contact school administration. We will gladly accommodate your student.

Students attending Arco Iris are required to wear the appropriate dress code except when notified of school sponsored non-uniform days.
