Uniform Requirement

See our student handbook for our uniform requirements. View now

The dress code will be strictly enforced and school uniforms are mandatory for all students every day. We at Imagine School at Lakewood Ranch find that simple, comfortable uniforms or a dress code mark learning as a serious endeavor and minimize student competition and distraction regarding dress. Cooperation of parents is essential as we work together to ensure that the uniform policy is followed and enforced. If a student is not in proper uniform, parents will be notified.

Students must wear polo shirts and bottoms that fall within our dress code requirements.
Shirts must be purchased through our vendors however bottoms may be purchased through our vendors or other outside vendors.

The vendors from which you can purchase uniforms are: Uniform Solutions Plus
