I go to a catholic school since I was 5 and have to wear a uniform which has been a jumper when I was a Junior and now a skirt as a senior but the whole way through all of us girls have always had to wear black shorts under our jumpers and skirts and I never really understood why.

I go to a private school, similar to a catholic school but we don't have to wear shorts underneath. Guess it depends on the school.

My school basically says in it's school uniform policy all girls must wear black shorts under their jumpers and skirts at all times.

Likely out of modesty in some cases, we wear a tartan/kilt skirt at my school. Just gotta be careful sitting, standing, and stooping.

while I am a guy, I assumed it had to be for modesty reasons. even more so if boys also go to the school

Yes, boys will naturally want to look. For your privacy, it's best to censor that. Also, the school doesn't want to expose them to that. It's for modesty. Guys will learn to respect women more if they are dressed appropriately.

Boys really look up girls skirts? I guess the boys at my school know girls have to wear shorts under there so they don't try it

I personally don't. I don't think other boys deliberately aim to look up girls skirts but, if they turn around and a girl is sitting, they might see her panties. It would violate the girls privacy and that's why the schools aims to prevent it.

I've been to a Catholic school. Nobody has ever been asked to wear specific clothes.

Does your school have a rule on how short skirts are? If too short that may be why?

I've never heard of such a rule. I know a couple people that go to Catholic school and they don't have regulations like this.

Yep the skirts are meant be around knee length and can't be any shorter than 2 inches above the knee when standing but the second the skirt looks like it comes above the knee like that the teachers start telling us to buy new skirts that are longer.

We also have to always wear around mid thigh length black spandex shorts under the skirts. They say the shorts have to at least be long enough to not be mistaken as underwear and cover up a decent amount. In Winter when we wear tights we still have to wear the black spandex shorts over the tights because tights can be see through.

My school is extremely strict on it's uniform and basically has zero tolerance toward underwear showing.

My school has an extremely strict uniform policy and they really hate any underwear showing
