RHS Pirate

This month’s question was asked on the Reedley High Campus by RHS senior Aimee Lewis!
What do you think of school dress codres?

This is what RHS students had to say:

Crystal R. “The dress code is far too strict. It is ridiculous that students can not wear a plain cap or hat.”

Matthew B. “I think camouflage should come back because it’s just clothes. It doesn’t mean you’re going to shoot someone.”

Cody S. “I think you should be able to wear whatever you want as long as it’s not too promiscuous, and shows too much skin. Short shorts and tank tops should be ok.”

Kinsey B. “I think that the dress code should be more lenient. Not stressing over every issue.”

Jessica H. “I think people should be able to wear whatever they want.”

Megan T. “I think the dress code is fine the way it is, and if people keep complaining, chances are, it will just get more strict.”

Adam R. “The dress code is fine the way it is and it needs no changing.”

Skyler Q. “The school dress code is very easy going. I have no complaints aside the fact that they don’t allow fedoras.”

Stephanie B. “It can be good. But sometimes they go overboard. Does it really matter what shade of blue I’m wearing?”

RHS Teacher’s response:
Gail H. “Dress codes are positive because they make it easier for students to make good choices.”

RHS Parent response:
Jennifer Q. “A professional dress code sets a professional, learning atmosphere.”

Aimee Lewis is 17 years old and an ongoing contributor to our Teen Talk section; her interests are acting and reading, and she hopes to become a Criminologist and work in Law Enforcement.


  1. School is a students job. This is no different than wearing a uniform on the outside, which could be required by your employer.

  2. If I changed anything about the dress code, I would make it a uniform school. They can make their fashion statements after school.
