  • Do you require uniforms?
    Yes, HIHCM requires a simple uniform. Our simple uniforms are beneficial because they ...​ Promote cohesiveness in the student body. ​ Schools nationwide are welcoming diversity into their student body, with a wide range of backgrounds and different economic status. At Highcroft, we strive to create an environment where all children feel welcome and safe. ​ Provide an appropriate standard of dress.​ Uniforms offer an added layer of protection for the children and staff by ensuring all clothing is appropriate for school.​ Reduce the cost of "school clothes." ​ Families may purchase uniforms from the store of their choosing. Affordable options include: School uniform sales, Target, Old Navy, Children's Place, used clothing stores, and many other retail options. ​ Allow younger children the opportunity for independence by dressing themselves. ​ Children often find it is easier to have only a few options to select from that are school appropriate, as some children get overwhelmed by having to choose from a large selection.​ Help eliminate distractions. ​ Wearing a uniform helps to eliminate distractions caused by current fashion trends.
