MIT does not have a uniform policy but does have a dress standard. Clothing must be appropriate for school. If a student wears clothing that is unacceptable or disrupts the purpose of being at school, the student will either find something appropriate to wear or call home to get clothing. The student will stay in the office for the remainder of the day or until the clothing is changed. Examples of unacceptable clothing for all the students are:
- Clothing with vulgar language, sexual connotations, refers to alcohol or drugs, has gang logo or colors.
- Flip-flops or sandals are not permitted for safety reasons.
- Tank tops, spaghetti straps, bare midriff, or shirts that expose the stomach when arms are raised.
- Excessively baggy pants, pants that sag or chains attached to pants.
- Baseball caps are permitted outside only and no other hats are permitted. The hat must be wear to the front only.
- Jewelry must be appropriate and safe. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
- Shorts and skirts must reach mid-thigh or at the fingertips.
- Shirts need to be tucked into pants if longer than the pants pocket.
- Pants with holes, rips or tares that expose excessive bare skin can be wear only with leggins under it.
