Diversity Mission Statement
 
The Grayson School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, age, or other non-merit factor to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school, nor in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid policies, athletic and other school-administered programs, or employment practices. The Grayson School is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We celebrate diversity and are fully committed to creating an inclusive community at our school. Maintaining a diverse community across dimensions is a priority, and we believe that justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) are essential aspects of providing an optional education for our gifted students. Our school utilizes research-based curriculum and pedagogical strategies to integrate these tenets into the foundation of the programming of our school. We recognize that exceptional ability knows no boundaries, yet that inequitable access to resources may prevent gifted students who are disadvantaged from reaching their potential. Providing adequate and appropriate resources, and identifying and meeting the needs of all of our students is central to our mission.
