Many Puerto Rican elementary schools do not require uniforms, but they are common in secondary schools. Most private and catholic schools do require uniforms at both the elementary and secondary level. Uniforms tend to be simple, often white shirts, both regular and polo knit shirts, and dark pants are common. Elementary boys may wear shorts, but secondary boys always wear long pants. Boys do not wear knee socks with shorts, but white kneesocks are common as part of the girls' uniforms.
