Diversity Mission Statement
 
We are guided by the Quaker testimonies of Equality, Integrity, Peace, and Community. We seek to “grow into” closer and closer observance of these ideals. We welcome and celebrate diversity in individuals and in families in all constituencies in our school. Our approach to diversity starts with the questions (queries) we ask ourselves as a learning community. This questioning marks a process of deep reflection, including a hard look at the pre-conceptions we may not even know that we carry. The questions that we ask shape our actions and decision-making. This is an ongoing process. We seek to set a tone of openness, not glossing over difference but seeing and hearing individuals fully, embracing the wholeness of each member or prospective member of our community. We guard against a culture of privilege.
