  1. No, George Washington shouldn’t have to wear a uniform. What you wear has nothing to do with your education as long as your not going over the line with it, but showing shoulders, or wearing leggings aren’t serious. GW didn’t pay for my clothes so GW isn’t going to tell me what to wear. If my mom let me walk out the house in it with no complaints then the school shouldn’t have to right to say anything either. Uniforms aren’t going to do anything but make matters worst because students will complain.

    • I agree with Jazmine it shouldn’t matter what we wear to school we go to school to get our education and become someone in life not for looks and appearance because that is judging . Like Jazmine said it shouldn’t matter if we wear leggings and our shoulders show be cause last time I check we are not going to an all Catholic school and we are not applying for jobs we are coming to school to learn.

    • I agree with Jazmine because nobody knows other peoples circumstances. People may not be able to afford what the dress code requies. As long as we come to school ready to learn and graduate, it shouldn’t matter what we wear. Uniforms will make students even more defiant because they don’t want to wear what administration tell us to. Dress code cause more referrals than discipline do, because of violations.

    • I personally agree with Jazmine , because I think what you wear should not effect the faculty and staff members and the Danville Public School System.

  2. George Washington High School should not have a school uniform. The uniform would prevent people from being themselves. Also the uniform would not do anything that would help the school. The uniform would not change the way students act in school. The uniform is just a easy way to stop dress code violations.

    • I also agree with JaWan H because it will not do anything to help the school.Changing the dress code will make students even more angry and there will be more suspentions.It will also make parents angry to beacuse they got to but their child an whole new wardrobe.George Washington HS will be one of the most hated high school in danville.Our dress code is one of the only reasons why more students come here instead of other high schools.

    • I disagree with you JaWan H because u stated “Also the uniform would not do anything that would help the school’ in my opinion it would actually help the school because the teachers wouldn’t have to look for student who have broken the rules by showing a lot of skin parts.Teachers wouldn’t have to worry about inappropriate clothing in their class room.

  3. George washington high school should not have a school uniform.The reason why they shouldnt is because most of the students would leave and they will probably lose more money.Their will also be more angry parents.Also the uniforms will not do anything to help the school.Thats why I think George Washington should not have a school uniform.

    • I agree with Malik, George Washington High School should not have a shool uniform. Also I agree with Malik that the uniform would not help the school. If students did not want to learn they are not going to change their minds just because of a uniform. I think that the uniform would restrict students from being themselves.

  4. George Washington High School should require students to wear a school uniform.By doing so, the school dress code wouldn’t be busted. Students would not stress over their clothing everyday trying to pick what to wear the next day.Their will be no competition over clothing and no one could judge you.This will also help parents save money and time.Everyone will look equally the same and should be treated the same without being judge by their clothing.

    • I’m sorry but i disagree. I think everyone should have there own opinion. We should all be able to wear what we want without anyone but our parents saying we can’t. You’re clothing expresses who you truly are and what you like. You can show who you are through what you wear.

    • Jetlee, I agree with your post that GWHS should require students to wear uniforms. If the students wore uniforms, it would be a better learning environment for students. Students would feel more comfortable because they will not be teased because of their clothing. It is cheaper for parents to buy school uniforms. A school uniform can cost about fifty dollars on the other hand a name brand outfit can cost around $200. Also it can stop fights and bullying due to the types of clothing students wear.

  5. Should George Washington High School require students to wear a school uniform? I do not think we should wear a uniform. We should all have our own opinion on what to wear. Everyone has there own taste of style. We all have our own free will to choose what we want to wear. Wearing your own clothes expresses who you are. If we all wear a uniform we would all seem like were in a prison. Wearing our own clothes would say this is me. Everyone wearing the same uniform would say we are all trapped. Everyone has there own colors to share to the world.

    • Marco I understand what you are coming from but then when you dont have dress code, everything would be all messed up like it is now. Our school would not be as bed as it is now. Like the bullying and the stealing and everything else.

    • I am sorry but i disagree with you because i think that if we all wear uniform it shows unity that all students look same and they do not worry about that what to wear tomorrow.
      And they will just focuss on there studies.

  6. So, what if George Washington High School required a dress code? Well, first off it would be a very goiod thing for George Washington High School. No one will get picked on as much beacuse we are all wearing the same thing. It would not be as hard to check for dress code violations as it is now. Parents would not have to buy new school outfits for their kids because they wear the same thing everyday,excluding weekends. The students would not have to worry about posessions (shoes, shirts, etc.) being stole. Statistics also say that having dress code increases grades and decreases violence. Lastly, George Washington High School will look more organized and formal.

  7. No Gerorge Washington High School should not have a dress-code. The reason why I think G.W High School should not have a dress-code is because we had dress code all threw our middle school year. I feel that we should be able to wear what we want. We should be able to express our selfs. You know feel free to express our personialites. To represent who we are. Teachers, principles, and security gaurd officers should not have to get on us about what to wear and what not to wear. That’s like us students telling the teachers, principles, and security guard offficers what to wear and what not to wear. This is why I think G.W High School should not have a dress-code.

    • Yamika G. , I also agree that students should have the freedom to express there indivuality. From everyone else we all have had to go threw middle school. With a plain and boring dress code for three long years. We all look alike especially at WestWood Middle School they go by grade level. Thats the worst ive seen yet as far as uniforms in danville public schools.

  8. No, because some parentsare already struggling that will just make it harder on them. What do our clothes have to do with yall teaching or our education. We should have the right to wear what we won’t just don’t go overboard with it. if our parents say we can wear it then it shouldn’t be a big deal when we get to school. That is just my oppinion of uniforms.

    • I agree with Tammie. As long as students do not go overboard with their attire they should be fine. By overboard I mean get to revealing in appearance because guys will look and be distracted. Sagging pants is also revealing and highly disgusting. Dress code is fine. The only time I think George Washington High School should require uniforms is when too many people as in most of the students attending George Washington High School are breaking the dress code policy. So far it’s been going fine.

  9. Should George Washington High School require students to wear uniforms? No, because some of our parents work hard to buy our clothes.If you went to westwood you had to wear uniforms and thats not fair.Also, you should be able to wear what you want.If you have to wear school uniform school wouldn’t be fair anymore

    • I agree with Iyanna because our parents do spend alot of money on our clothes. Also sometimes teenagers buy their clothes themselves. It would not be fair to students at all.

  10. George Washington should not have students wear uniforms. Why should we buy uniforms, if we have closets and dressers full of clothes? Uniforms will be a big distraction in the school. The reason it will be a big distraction is because all kids are gonna do is complain, or either come to school out of dress code still. However, even if the school was going to pay for it, no one will want to wear uniforms.

    • I agree because if we had to wear uniforms schools would change.People would feel like they look ugly.People would not follow the dress code rules.Provably would be a lot more dress code violations.Also DPS do not buy our clothes

  11. George Washington school don’t allow to wear uniform yet . But my opinion is that students have to wear uniform all students will look same and they all just focuss on there studies not on there dresses then we all will have no tention about our dresses. what color of dress i will be wearing tomorrow. if students will know that we have to wear uniforms so they will just focuss on there studies. school will must exeptions of religions. i know no body will agree with me but this is my thinking.
    thanks.

  12. No i think George Washington High School should not have a uniform. There will be so many students missing out on school cause they are being put out for not follow the uniform attire. Then that just leads to lots of learning time being missed. Most freshmans are excited to get out of middle school because of the dresscode I know I was. So i dont think most parents or students would be to happy about that. Its just goin to be alot more comotion then needed if George Washington high School after all theses years decide to get a dress code.

  13. No, George Washington High School students should not have to wear uniforms. My opinion is that students should be able to wear anything they want any way that they want. I understand dps does not want students to focus on other things. Dps have to realize that they don’t buy our clothes. Some families don’t have the money to buy uniforms. Unless they’re providing the outfits nobody is going to follow it.

  14. No , i do not think George Washington should aloud students to wear a dress code. I think students should be aloud to wear watever they want. Some people’s parents struggle already to put clothes on our back ,and the clothes that they do got they should be aloud to wear them. We should be aloud to express our indivulality. The school board should think about about the parents in the situation and some parents just dont have that kind of money going out and just buying dress code.

  15. No, I don’t think George Washington High School should require students to wear a school uniform. I think they should continue with the dress code policy. How will you express yourself through your appearance if you look exactly like everyone else? Yes, it looks professional and organized but it’s boring. Sometimes clothes people wear can be provoking like tank tops with small straps everyone isn’t structered the same way as in physical features. You can’t let a certain group of people wear what they want and don’t let the other do the same as well. You have to cancel certain clothing for everyone. That’s why we have a handbook to go by. The dress code check in the morning is just fine, it allows George Washington High School to remain organized and professional.

  16. Should George Washington High School require students to wear a school uniform?I believe that George Washington High School should require students to wear school uniforms. Even though I would prefer to wear my own clothes, it would be a more productive and safer school environment is students wore uniforms. This would help to prevent the theft of student clothing and shoes. This would help to prevent bullying of students, who parents can not afford to buy name brand clothes and shoes. If the students were uniforms, they would be able to focus on their class work. They would not be focusing on other students and their style of dress. I have a family member that attends a High School in New York that students wear uniforms. She said it is better because students are not getting robbed for their clothing, shoes, or jewelry. It would be easier for parents because school uniforms are cheaper to buy than name brand clothes. School uniforms will help the students to look more professional, this helps to prepare them for future jobs.

  17. George Washington High School requires students to wear a school uniform. I think George Washington High School should not require students to wear a school uniform. Students should be able to wear what they desire. Students should be able to express themselves with the clothing that they wear. Some students are not fortunate and have to wear whatever they have. Parents work hard to buy the stuents their clothings. Uniform is a distraction to students because students are being sent out of class and sent home for violations. I don’t think uniform is fair because administration will not be able to catch everyone in uniform violation.
