Dress Code Information

Our experience is that when students follow a dress code, they have increased self-esteem, which affects their attitudes and approach to learning. Our Dress Code guidelines are below. If you have questions, please contact the Main Office at Info@SouthportSchool.org or call 203.254.2044.
