Dress Code

Dress Code



Parents, teachers and school officials have agreed that school uniforms are a positive way to increase school safety, reduce discipline problems and increase academic learning.  Our uniform policy is an important part of our overall goal to maintain standards of excellence for students.  It is the vision of the staff and uniform committee that all students participate in the uniform program to promote professionalism and school safety, enhance the learning environment and maintain consistency throughout the campus.


Some benefits of the VMSA Dress for Success policy include:

·         Academic Excellence - creates a positive, business-like atmosphere on campus allowing students to focus on academics and concentrate on their school work

·         Safety – clearly identifies those who belong on campus and distinguishes students when walking to and from school

·         Social Development – helps students resist peer pressure and fosters social equality

·         Respect – demonstrates respect for school and learning

·         Pride – instills school pride/spirit in students


Valadez Middle School Academy has adopted the following dress code for all students:





Polo-style collared shirts

(with or without school logo)

navy blue or white solid colored

An additional shirt may be worn UNDER the uniform shirt.
