Uniform dress is required at the Bayside STEM Academy. While there is room for variation—such as skirts and shorts may be worn instead of pants—students must consider appropriate choices when it comes to these variations. As students are primarily here to learn, they should present themselves professionally and not dress in any way that is distracting to the learning environment for themselves or others. All clothing and accessories should demonstrate appropriate modesty, courtesy and be safe to the wearer and those around them.
