ACT Sample Essay #3 “School Dress Code”

imagesEssay Prompt:
In some high schools, many teachers and parents have encouraged the school to
adopt a dress code that sets guidelines for what students can wear in the school
building. Some teachers and parents support a dress code because they think it will
improve the learning environment in the school. Other teachers and parents do not
support a dress code because they think it restricts the individual student’s freedom
of expression. In your opinion, should high schools adopt dress codes for students?

In your essay, take a position on the question. You may write about either one of the two points of view given, or you may present a different point of view on this question. Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.

TIP: Remember it doesn’t matter which side you choose to write about. Picking one or the other
won’t matter in the ACT graders’ eyes. All that matters is that you pick one side and support
your opinion.
