2020/21 Uniform Policy for Middle & High School Students

The Baltimore Design School requires specific uniforms for Middle School scholars. Our High School dress code follows the Baltimore City Schools guidelines. This year, we will also follow the City Schools backpack policy.

All Students:

Book bags need to be mesh or clear plastic if students wish to carry them to their classrooms. Book bags comprising of other material will have to be placed in student lockers. There are no exceptions to this policy. Students will also need to have a lock for their lockers. It is recommended that students bring a combination lock, however students must have a lock for their locker to secure their property.

High School:  

Students will have school spirit t-shirt and hoodie options they can purchase. While there is no uniform, we ask that parents please abide by the code of conduct when allowing their students to dress for school. Please no open toe shoes, slippers, flip flops, see through shirts,  halter-tops, or ripped up jeans. Outerwear (coats and oversized jackets) must be kept inside of lockers.

Middle School Uniforms

Middle School:   

Each grade has a specific color shirt, and that color will follow students throughout their middle school years.
