The best argument for school uniforms is undoubtedly the attitude a uniform inspires in a student. Studies show that both in school and in the workplace, a person dressed professionally is better equipped to perform his or her role. When a student feels confident and well-dressed, they are more likely to be alert, motivated, focused, and eager to excel.
Outside of school, students in uniform act as representatives in the surrounding community, keeping their school’s brand in the public eye.
Uniforms offer a cost-saving to families. Unlike most mass-market clothing products, our uniforms are expected to last at minimum 180 days per year. At FlynnO’Hara we offer a School Year Warranty so that parents can be sure they’ll get their money’s worth.
Uniforms provide a sense of community, school pride, and act as a valuable marketing tool. In school, students are made to feel as if they are part of something: a family which provides support, comfort, and safety. Out of school, students in uniform act as representatives in the surrounding community, keeping their school’s brand in the public eye.
One argument for uniforms is that they eliminate common socioeconomic disparities indicated through clothing. One student can afford a new outfit every day of the week, and the other cannot. By transcending preoccupation with styles and labels, students enter the school yard on equal footing.
