Although you may be surprised that 80 percent of Chaminade students surveyed on the West Hills campus like our school uniforms, about 74 percent believe uniforms restrict their individual style while allowing room for religious expression.

An overwhelming 92 percent of students surveyed in March stated that wearing lanyards for identification and shaving off facial hair is too restrictive.

A U.S. Government class poll surveyed 100 students, 25 from each grade. It showed more than one-third said the only aspect of individuality that can be freely expressed on campus is hairstyle.

Data was gathered by seniors in Mrs. Yvette Williamson’s A block class.

 

Our deans have been invited to comment on this survey. 

Pollsters were Cara Lederberger ’14, Ethan Hayden ’14, Willie Nelson ’14, Matthew Tolman ’14, and Thomas Bromley ’14.
