Bartram Trail High School in Florida edited the yearbook photos of 80 female students.
Parts of the students' photos were altered for modesty, local news outlets report.
Responding to angry parents and students, the school district offered refunds for the yearbooks.
A Florida high school has offered refunds to parents who bought a yearbook with dozens of edited photos of its female students.
"There's a black box over my chest and the cardigan on the side like moved over and it looks really awkward and I was very confused," a student told News4Jax.
Ben Ryan, a reporter with Action News Jax, posted an example to Twitter of a student whose breasts were covered for the photo.
The girl in Ryan's tweet is a 14-year-old ninth grader, he said.
After parents and students complained of the photo edits, the St. Johns County School District said it would issue refunds, provided that the yearbook is returned, News4Jax reported. Each yearbook sold for $100.
The St. Johns County School District did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.
But in a statement to News4Jax, the district said the school had in the past followed a procedure that allowed it to keep students who violated dress codes and codes of conduct out of the yearbook. "So the digital alterations were a solution to make sure all students were included in the yearbook," the statement said.
And on the website for the high-school yearbook, there's a disclaimer that says student images might be altered to fit with the codes.
"All images in ads and all individual student pictures must be consistent with the St. Johns County School District Student Code of Conduct or may be digitally adjusted," the disclaimer says.
"I think it sends the message that our girls should be ashamed of their growing bodies, and I think that's a horrible message to send out to these young girls that are going through these changes," one parent told the St. Augustine Record.
