Dress Code

As a private school, Matignon High School promotes a formal academic environment and has established a dress code policy for its students.  The administration reserves the right to determine the appropriate attire for students at school and at school-sponsored events.  We expect students and parents to comply with these expectations and that parents will assist school personnel in enforcing the dress code regulations.

The dress code at Matignon is simple and equitable. The school reserves the right to judge new/different styles as they emerge on the market to determine if they are in conformity with the Matignon dress code. Student compliance with the dress code demonstrates respect for themselves and for the Matignon community.  Matignon High School administration will make the final determination in the matter of issues referring appropriateness to the Matignon dress code.
