Miami Senior High Uniform Policy

By Ailanis Rodriguez, Staff Writer

Even though Miami Senior High has a strict uniform policy, there’s always one day where kids can wear what they want, even in PJ’s, as worn here by Luis Delgado.

We’re almost done with this school year, and something that most of us have talked about is the uniform policy. A lot of students spend time in CSI every day for breaking the dress code. But is this something that we should really worry about?

Some teachers believe Miami High could function without uniforms. Mr. Randy Jimenez, English teacher, thinks that the uniform policy is not necessary as long as kids know how to dress properly. He would even allow students to wear sweatpants.

Others, however, like having uniforms. Although Ms. Munguia, Algebra 2 teacher, thinks that students just want to be comfortable and most of them like wearing black clothes to because it’s easier to match, she said, “I personally do like uniform policy, mainly for students who can’t afford new clothes.” Nevertheless, like Mr. Jimenez, she would like to see sweatpants added to the school uniform.

ESOL teacher Mr. Garcia also thinks that students must adhere to uniform policy because they often worry more about what they are wearing than school. “It’s the age, a matter of fashion,” he said. ‘They just want to be trendy and noticed around school.”

Most of the students at Miami High have broken the uniform policy at least once. Mr. Jimenez thinks students break the uniform policy because for them it is not a big deal like breaking an important rule or getting in a fight.
