Employer Description
Waring is a liberal arts and sciences school for students in grades 6-12. Our mission is to create and sustain a community of lifelong learners who are working together for the individual and the common good. Waring School was founded as a community approach to schooling in 1972 by Philip and Josée Waring. The campus is situated on 32 acres in beautiful Beverly, Massachusetts. Students are held to high academic standards with the belief that rigorous study, self-motivation, and high expectations culminate in strong, rounded students with a sense of responsibility towards the past, present, and future of their community and the world. We strive to maintain a culture that honors and supports the human desire to learn. Stewardship of our school and the environment, service to the greater community, exposure to the arts and languages, and strong cultural connections are the backbone of our academic life.
Diversity Mission Statement
At Waring, we are committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community that affirms individual voices. Our program aims at an understanding of the range of human experience; the more varied the voices in our community, the richer that understanding will be. Waring teachers and students are curious and innovative in their approach to learning. We challenge students, and our entire community, to embrace multiple perspectives and to question assumptions and biases. We seek students, faculty, staff, and trustees of different races, ethnicities, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, family structures, socio-economic backgrounds, physical abilities, and religions. Guided by these principles, the Waring community can prepare us all to lead thoughtful lives in our multicultural society.
