Elementary and Middle School students at AAS are required to wear uniforms. Please find below the uniform guidelines and frequently asked questions about these guidelines.
For uniformity of color and style, AAS recommends that parents purchase from the following suppliers: Gap and/or Schoolwear International (www.s-i.org.uk/aasm). However, if parents choose another supplier, the styles and shades of color need to match those offered by Gap and Schoolwear International. Please visit Schoolwear International's website to view their uniform pieces.
Please note that on days when they have P.E. in their schedule, Elementary School students should wear their P.E. uniform all day. Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students have P.E. three times a week; all other grades have P.E. twice a week.
