Five reasons we wear uniforms at Northside Christian School

  1. Uniforms identify students as part of our school, our family, our team. The colors of the uniform attire and NCS logo-wear show others that we identify with each other and with Northside Christian School.
  2. We seek to provide a setting free from harm and distractions. We want students’ clothing to be a background feature, and not a cause for attention.
  3. Uniforms help foster self-discipline and readiness for learning. Appropriate dress shows respect for the school (and work) environment and the people you interact with.
  4. We want to accurately reflect our Savior in every way before one another and in our community. Our uniform and non-uniform guidelines follow Biblical principles for dress.
  5. Our uniform code is flexible enough to be parent-friendly, but strict enough to accomplish our other objectives.
