YES Prep Dress Code Philosophy

YES Prep Public Schools believes in the power of community and school pride while also deeply valuing a student’s right to express their individuality without the fear of unnecessary discipline, body shaming, or the confines of gender norms. Students have the right to be treated equitably and dress code enforcement at YES Prep Public Schools will not create disparities, reinforce or increase the marginalization of any group, nor will it be unfairly enforced more strictly against a student because of racial identity, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, cultural or religious identity, household income, body size or type, or body maturity.  

Campus Dress Code Policy

YES Prep Northbrook High School dress code policy is centered around values of equity and school pride. The YES Prep dress code allows for individuality building and it allows for community building through optional campus-specific shirts and outerwear. The dress code should be met each school day and should meet the expectations of district and campus guidelines.  Like all YES Prep policies, if a student’s dress or accessory choice poses a concern for student physical or emotional safety, a campus administrator has the discretion to disallow the dress item.

A campus-based YES Prep Polo or YES Prep-based Spirit Shirt is sold by YES Prep Public Schools, containing the current school and official YES Prep logo and is distributed by the student’s school or Athletic Department.

YES Prep Northbrook High School also has sweatshirts and cardigans for sale to provide multiple options for outwear. While a student can choose to wear their own outerwear, YES Prep or campus outerwear allows for additional school-pride building opportunities. If a student chooses to wear YES Prep outerwear, it may only be provided by YES Prep or the campus Athletics Department.

Below is the dress code expectations throughout the week.
