Survey shows overwhelming dislike of uniform

By Steinmetz Star reporters*

Of 690 students surveyed by the Steinmetz Star, only 25 said that the green polo and khaki pants uniform is their preference (four percent of those surveyed). Ninety-six percent would prefer last year’s policy or no uniform requirement at all.

Star reporters distributed the Star uniform survey in dozens of English classes (including in the sophomore class pictured at right) during the months of October. Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors were asked their opinion.

The survey asked students which option they preferred from three choices:

• The current uniform of green polo and khakis
• Last year’s uniform of any Steinmetz-themed shirt with any pant
• No uniform requirement

More than half of Steinmetz’ 1,361 students were surveyed. (Source for enrollment: CPS’ “find a school” website –


One of the surveys taken by seniors, preferring the uniform, had the comment: “Except on Fridays.”
