Employer Description
Stoneleigh-Burnham School is an independent boarding and day school for girls in grades 7–12 and postgraduate. Founded in 1869, the school is a combination of five founding schools in New England, but resides today on a 100-acre campus in Greenfield, Massachusetts, United States. Attracting girls from around the Pioneer Valley and from more than a dozen countries around the world, Stoneleigh-Burnham has developed an inclusive and multi-cultural community which supports thoughtful discourse and sharing among cultures.
Diversity Mission Statement
In an age where global communication, travel and cultural blending are a part of everyday life, the dynamics of difference require awareness, sensitivity and thoughtful engagement. Exploring pluralism, diversity and our common humanity is essential to understanding and learning. Stoneleigh-Burnham School is committed to diversity and the development of an educational environment that fosters mutual respect, responsibility and empathy in our School and in the world. We value the presence of individuals whose differences include, but are not limited to, age, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, learning style, nationality, physical ability,
political views, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status. It is expected that all members of our community – students, parents, faculty, staff and administration, and trustees – keep their minds and hearts open to difference as a source of strength and means of growth for the entire community. Further, it is expected that our commitment to diversity will be reflected in all areas of School life, including the employment of faculty and staff. We recognize that fulfilling this mission is an ongoing process that requires open dialogue.
