How Much Do School Uniforms Cost?

There are some private and Christian schools that choose to have students dress in uniforms rather than having a dress code.  This is sometimes easier than trying to make sure each student is in dress code each day.  Some people have false conceptions about uniforms, however; wearing a uniform does not mean that you wear the same outfit every day.  Usually uniforms have a few choices of bottoms, such as dress pants, skirts, shorts, capris, etc., and a few choices of tops such as dress shirts, polos, sweaters, etc.  These tops and bottoms can be worn in any combination at most uniform schools.

    I think that school uniforms are STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!

    Was it worth it: No

  8. scott (Denver,CO) paid $300 and said:

    We bought at Lands end. I think it would have cost us a similar amount or more ($300) had we had bought regular school clothes (non-uniforms). jenny, $10 million is outrageous! I’d think uniforms are STUPID too if I lived where you live.

    Was it worth it: Yes

  9. Sammie (Lincoln,Nebraska) paid $nothing and said:

    My child goes to a public school and those who complain about it costing $150 for the school year… Seriously! How many uniforms does she have? Most shirts cost around $20, jeans around $40 and shoes are around $50 this is $110 for one outfit not including that she cant wear the same thing everyday. She also cannot wear what she wears in summer, in winter because she would be freezing and if she wore her winter clothes in the summer she would die of a heat stroke. So I would think $150 is really cheap for a year.

    Was it worth it: Yes

  10. Frieda (Mooresville,NC) paid $$300.00 and said:

    Sending clothing items to and from Land’s End was a pain. My daughter is very petite and I couldn’t seem to get the sizes right for her, especially in the pants. I think if schools would have more of a dress code as far as colors for shirts and pants it would be way cheaper. Finding a pair of Khaki pants at target that fit right can be a lot more affordable than what Land’s End costs, and you don’t have to deal with the shipping costs.

    Was it worth it: No

    it’s stupid I paid $10000 for my 5 boys and 4 girls this is just the worst thing the school has done

  12. Tatyanna paid $ and said:

    I think that if you have to pay that much money just for some stupid uniforms they need to BANN school uniforms.

  13. whywouldigiveyoumyname? paid $ and said:

    I paid $500 for this year at school, because the uniforms that I would buy would always be bulky and extremely uncomfortable, and seems to mess up your day no matter how you slice it. So you walk around your school and bend to pick something up and your pants split at the seams. You come to school when its either -30 or 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and you have to wear your uniform because there is a dress code. Uniforms SHOULD BE AGAINST THE LAW!!!

    And for you principals and teachers reading this article to say that uniforms are good, just so the general public can have someone to argue against, you are completely wrong. We know that schools and institutes benefit highly financially from your bullshit, so if you are going to post a bullshit comment, post it on your ass and kiss it!
