Announcing the Dress Code for 2022-23

Over the last two years, Brookwood relaxed the daily dress code given COVID restrictions on our use of locker rooms for PE and athletics. We will be returning to a regular dress code for the 2022-23 school year. A printable PDF with Brookwood’s daily dress code can be found here, and the details are also listed below.


Dress Code

We’re a learning institution and our dress code aims to serve that. We want students to have clear and practical options to help them navigate their day successfully and safely. It is not possible to make an exhaustive list of do’s and do not’s; instead, we ask you to help your child make the best choices they can both when purchasing new clothes and when getting dressed each day. As children grow into adolescence, they’re likely to push boundaries, particularly dress code! We know that, expect that, and will work with you if your child is consistently out of dress code. Student dress, like all things at Brookwood School, is aligned with our mission and statement of diversity and inclusion. Students at Brookwood have many choices regarding their apparel for daily dress:


Lower School

Students should dress appropriately for the weather in clothing that is neat, clean, in good repair and appropriate for busy days. Sneakers are required for PE and recess.
