Each student is expected to wear the official school uniform according to their respective Academy colors.
William H. Turner Technical Arts High School strives to prepare its students to be future leaders and productive citizens. In accordance with School Board Policy po5511, students are expected to come to school with proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness, grooming, and neatness. Students whose personal attire or grooming distracts the attention of other students or teachers from their schoolwork shall be required to make the necessary alterations to such attire or grooming before entering the school or classroom.
The uniform policy applies to all students during school hours, before school, after school, and during all school-sponsored activities, including those held off-campus. Compliance with these guidelines is mandatory unless explicitly stated otherwise with administrative approval.
Going to school should be compared with going to work. Proper dress is always expected. Your dress and appearance will emphasize your serious concern for the maintenance of a proper school environment.
