Diversity Committees

The roles of the Diversity Committees are to: establish direction and priorities for the divisions, ensure equality among community members, and provide community-building activities.

There are three committees, one the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools, comprised of faculty and staff that focus on diversity and multicultural programming. Each committee is responsible for planning and programming events for their students and addressing items of interest within the community. Committee members are the diversity leaders for their respective divisions. In addition, there is a Global Awareness Committee of the Parents' Association whose role it is to provide community events that allow our parents, staff, and students to engage in an activity that promotes global awareness and expose our families to the unique cultural and diverse aspects of our community.
