Dress Code Philosophy
Purdue Polytechnic High School’s uniform requirements are intended to foster community by reducing socio-economic differences and ensuring safety. Our students should be judged on the merits of their actions, not on the labels or expense of their clothing. PPHS students will be interacting with numerous professionals and community members; keeping our students safe is our top priority.
Furthermore, PPHS will consistently drive towards excellence and innovation through all of our actions. By reducing the focus on what we wear, we can put our energy into what we create and accomplish together. Therefore, students are expected to be in uniform at all times during school.
