Dress Code

There is a required “uniformed” look for all students at Thomas A. Edison Charter School. We believe that a school dress code produces an increase in school performance and a decrease in the number of behavior-related problems. Below are the school dress requirements and stores where you will find the items you will need at reasonable prices.
