St. Peter the Apostle Catholic School is a uniform school and students are required to be in complete uniform each school day. Notice of exceptions to this rule is sent home in advance. The way a student dresses affects the way he/she behaves. To maintain an atmosphere that is conducive to learning, we expect our students to be neat, clean, tidy and modest in appearance. The dress code is designed to allow our students to concentrate on developing religious, moral and ethical values that enhance positive self-esteem built on personal responsibility and Christian morals values.
