SCHOOL UNIFORMS

The ISNS uniform is an important element of school life.  We believe the uniform can help to create a sense of community.  When worn properly it generates a shared identity among students and can help instill a sense of pride in our school.  Having a uniform helps students to focus on their work and activities while at school, rather than their appearance.  It encourages positive social interactions among students by building unity rather than competition about looks.  It also makes life a little easier for parents!  

School Uniform Policy

ISNS Students - Wear your uniform with pride as you represent our international school!

Students are required to wear a school uniform at all times during the day.  The school administration reserves the right to decide if clothing and/or appearance conveys a message contrary to the philosophy of the school uniform code.
