School Uniforms

The purpose of a uniform at Country Day School is to minimize distractions and to help students learn to keep themselves neat, modest, and well-groomed. We believe that concern for personal appearance is an indication of self-respect and courtesy to others, and creates a favorable climate for learning.

Girls in our uniform

It is Costa Rican law that all school age children wear their school’s designated uniform as described in their handbooks.

Coming to school in uniform is considered a minimum expectation for each student each day.

CDS attaches as much importance to the spirit as to the letter of the uniform and looks to students and families to comply with both. We expect that parents, without exception, will work with the School in supporting and enforcing the uniform.

The school uniform, along with other CDS items, may be purchased at the campus’ CDS Store.
