As a Montessori school, we teach children to recognize and appreciate human similarities and value human solidarity. As an educational institution working towards equity and justice, we also teach children to recognize and value human differences.
We work to co-create a community where difference is recognized and celebrated, not just tolerated, and inclusion rather than assimilation is the goal. We strive for vibrant co-existence by means of skillful engagement across difference which includes affirming each individual’s identity so that they may be a full participant in every experience offered.
EACMSI culture, rooted in respect and personal responsibility, is already primed to cultivate an environment that allows a diverse community to flourish. We further contextualize difference through curriculum and day to day experiences when addressing concepts such as race, gender, ethnicity, ability and sexual orientation. The sum total is sound preparation for our students to thrive in an increasingly global society.
We consider our diversity, equity and inclusion initiative to be fundamental to our mission.
