•  uniform

    Matthew Gilbert Middle School adopted the use of embroidered polo shirts four years ago and we have noticed a decrease in academic distractions since doing so. In our efforts to keep this trend going, we will continue the implementation of uniforms for students in the 2018-2019 school year. A proper uniform consists of a MWG polo shirt, khaki, navy blue or black uniform bottoms, a belt, shoes and school identification badge. Shoes must have closed toes and backs. Please reference the Duval County General Code of Appearance for additional dress code policies regarding additional details.

     

    If you have any questions, please contact Matthew Gilbert at (904) 630-6700.
