Dress Code

Dress Code

“What students wear and how they look is a reflection of the pride they take in their school and in themselves.”  It is important students understand that school is not a recreational or social activity.  We want our students to look like they have come to school to work hard and achieve greatness.  If we are going to adequately prepare our young people to succeed in the world we must prepare them to be able to follow rules and be able to live up to high expectations.  When visitors enter our building, we want them to notice a distinct difference and know they are in Jack Britt High School.  It is important people think well of Jack Britt, and first impressions count.  We want Jack Britt to set the standard for other schools to emulate.  Consequently, with all of this in mind, we believe these expectations to be reasonable and expect full cooperation on the part of the student body.
