At Citizens of the World KC we recognize that students need to come to school
comfortable and ready for a day of learning. We believe that a school uniform assists in meeting that goal for all children. School uniforms can:

• Eliminate family struggles in the morning around “what to wear.”
• Ensure children are comfortable and able to focus on learning throughout the day.
• Create a simple and cost-effective clothing option for families.
• Reduce disparities in an economically diverse community.
• Encourage children to focus on more meaningful avenues for self-expression.

Below is a visual description of the uniform for Citizens of the World Kansas City. The focus is on comfort throughout the day, options for warmer or colder weather, and ease of access/affordability for families. Different garments can be purchased at most major retail outlets – both department stores and discount stores.
