Los Altos High School's dress code values student and family choice in what a student wears to school. We prioritize comfort, individual expression, and respect for cultural and personal styles, while maintaining a safe and focused learning environment. We appreciate when parents and guardians support students in selecting attire that is appropriate for a school setting.
