The policy of wearing uniform in schools is to set the students academic performance, to improve their scholastic record. A lot of educators have observed that wearing of school uniform precisely help students a lot in actively giving the best in their classes. Thus, it can be observed that there is an improvement of students achievements as it keeps them to constantly focus on their studies rather than anything else; because when students are not on their uniforms, they most of the time have more concern on how they look.

- Positive Learning Environment: Students coming from different walks of life, from high to low-class teens, will not have the attitude of characterizing schoolmates because of socio-economic status. It eradicates a student’s feeling of not being up on fashion trend. It also has seen to have an increase of students attendance and minimize giving of disciplinary actions.
