At Mounds Park Academy, we feel our Lower School students benefit from wearing uniforms. We believe that uniforms contribute to a positive school climate and keep students in a 'student' mindset. Uniforms bring consistency and cohesion to clothing and cut down on competition. We invite parents to join us in this effort.
