The BHS Uniform

The School Board of Directors at Alliance Alice M. Baxter High School have approved the adoption of a uniform policy. This policy requires all students to be in uniform at all times, beginning with the first day of school. The uniform consists of shirts, pants, skirts, shorts and outerwear as described below.
We believe that student attire affects the learning environment of the school campus. Baxter High School relies upon the good judgment and taste of both students and families with respect to grooming and appearance. Cleanliness, neatness, and due regard for the legitimate sensibility of others are imperative.

At Baxter High School, each Grade Level will wear a different color shirt. For the 17-18 school year:
9th Grade: Purple polo with Black pants/shorts
10th Grade: Dark Heather Gray polo with Black pants/shorts/skirts
11th Grade: Light Heather Gray polo with Black pants/shorts/skirts
12th Grade: Black polo with Black OR Tan/Khaki pants/shorts/skirts
At the the end of each year, students who are on-track academically (tracked by credits-earned) are promoted to the next grade level, and receive their rising grade polo. Students can only purchase uniform polos if they earn the appropriate number of credits to be in that grade level. The first uniform polo will be provided for FREE by Baxter High School.
The following uniform requirements apply to all students:
