Uniform Policy & Order Form

Park East High School is one of many DOE schools that have adopted school uniforms. The school uniform is intended to develop a sense of school pride and make sure that students’ appearance does not cause a distraction or constitute a threat to anyone’s health or safety. Students must be in full uniform  in order to attend classes and must remain in full uniform throughout the day. Please note that uniform is NOT required when students attend the satellite location.
Please review the uniform policy and dress code below:

    • Park East logo polo (short-sleeved), Park East logo crew neck shirt (long-sleeved), Park East T-shirt, or East Harlem Pride T-shirt
    • Park East logo hoodie or quarter-zip fleece
