Moscow - School Report Question and Answers

Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?

Uniforms are required through Middle School (there are no uniforms for High School), but the PTO has a uniform exchange program so you can swap outgrown clothes for used clothes in the new sizes you need, which is wonderful and helps keep costs down. The PTO store also sells new uniform clothing, but you can also buy or bring your own. Officially students need to wear navy or khaki bottoms and red or white tops, but many kids also wear school t-shirts from school events and their own sweatshirts over their uniform shirt. It's fairly casual. The uniform policy also says something about having to have black shoes, but this is never enforced. Students need to have their own laptop starting in Grade 5. Musical instruments can be rented. - Jan 2021
