Ongoing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Programming
The school is called to create a truly diverse community so that we may authentically live our mission. Our diversity encompasses numerous forms of difference that enrich our school: economic, geographic, and racial as well as difference growing out of gender identity, sexual orientation, neurodiversity, family structure, and more.
In particular, the school is acutely aware of the widening income disparity in our community and in independent schools. We recognize inequities that are present in the different schools that our students come from and thus hope to meet the needs of those students by fully embracing strengths. Additionally, we want students to view education as a way to make a positive difference in the world and not just use it as a stepping stone to college and a job.
We are committed to embracing students for who they are and not requiring that all students fit one mold. We recognize the responsibility and obligation to serve the needs of those who are in our community and beyond.
We want to dismantle the culture of privilege that is an assumed identity of independent schools.
