School Uniform Policy

The Islamic Academy of Delaware believes that a mandatory school uniform policy will provide a more secure school environment, promote an atmosphere of discipline, and increase learning opportunities for students by removing many of the distractions and connotations associated with various types of clothing. All IAD Students are required to wear uniforms to class. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their children wear the designated school uniform as outlined below.
