*The Magnolia School Uniform Policy was made with the input of representatives of all stakeholders within the school and community. Research has proven that school uniforms provide for an atmosphere of learning with less distraction, an enhancement of pride and sense of community, and less peer pressure and bullying based on appearances. We appreciate your effort in conforming to this policy.
