Upper and Middle School Uniforms    

student attire at the birch wathen lenox school

Middle and Upper School Divisions

 The Middle and Upper School uniforms differ from each other and give students a degree of flexibility in their choice of attire. However, you must still purchase certain elements of the uniform from our uniform company, Sue Mills (www.millswear.com). This year’s uniform sale will take place on Thursday, May 29thfrom 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Please note that any student who has excessive uniform infractions will have his or her transcript noted, meaning that other schools and colleges will be made aware of school policy infractions. The division offices will maintain a complete wardrobe of uniforms, and any student appearing at school without a uniform will be expected to change into one. Fridays will be dress down days for the Middle and Upper School divisions.

The details are as follows:
