Diversity Mission Statement
 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to all that we do.

Our vision for The Evergreen School is for its members to value and embrace the dignity and diversity of all people. We actively seek and support students, families, faculty, staff, and trustees who bring a diversity of identity into our community.

Our mission makes it essential that we skillfully deliver an inclusive educational program that teaches respect for others, empowers students of all backgrounds equitably, encourages social responsibility, and prepares students to be leaders in an interdependent global community.


We recognize there is a critical difference between merely opening doors of opportunity and creating a sustained pathway toward success. At Evergreen, our goal is to curate a culture where every family feels fully welcomed and encouraged to participate in every aspect of the community.

In preparing our students for a diverse and complex world, we strive to intentionally incorporate issues of equity and social justice throughout our curriculum and across all grade levels. We encourage and support courageous conversations among the members of our community to promote greater cross-cultural understanding.

Our commitment to diversity is both a vital opportunity for our highly capable students and a fundamental responsibility for our entire community.

This commitment is affirmed by the board through our Strategic Plan, head of school, administration, faculty, and staff of The Evergreen School.
