Diversity Mission Statement
Tenacre values inclusiveness and diversity—and our curriculum reflects it. From pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, we work with children to guide their understanding and appreciation of our different cultures, religions, races, genders, socioeconomic differences, and family structures. We prepare our students to be good global citizens with a deep awareness of the importance of history, geography, and current events. We study other cultures, other languages, and other points of view. That is one of the many ways we create caring citizens.
