Uniform and Dress Code

Beginning in Kindergarten, girls enrolled at Lincoln School are expected to adhere to the following dress code. The green and blue plaid kilt (or jumper) has long been a symbol of attendance at Lincoln School.  The jumper and kilt are worn with pride and signify our belief that uniform, simple, and practical clothing worn by girls at Lincoln, removes from the morning routine the issue of materialism and choice. The kilt, worn with approved shirts, shoes, sweaters, and sweatshirts, reinforces the Quaker tenets of simplicity and equity. Avoiding extravagance and ostentation enhances everyone's focus on the schoolwork at hand.

Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten

Students are encouraged to come to school in simple, sensible, comfortable clothing that can get dirty.


Monday through Thursday, girls are encouraged to come to school in simple, sensible and comfortable clothing. On Friday, Lincoln School dress code-kilt or jumper-is required.
