Community Life + Diversity

Community Life + Diversity

Allen-Stevenson promotes diverse perspectives, honest dialogue and mutual respect. This educational process requires constant engagement and considerate thinking. As participants in a vigorous learning environment, all of us are obliged to accept the experiences, dignity and rights of others.
 
Therefore, faculty and staff, administrators, students past and present, parents and trustees are expected to:
  • Demonstrate an awareness of and respect for the human experiences that exist within the diverse cultures that make up the world in which we live;
  • Incorporate in the life of the School a diversity that may include – but is not limited to – race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, learning style, physical ability, sexual orientation, family structure or socio-economic status; and
  • Acquire the knowledge, sensitivity and skills necessary for participating in cross-cultural interactions and promoting mutual understanding.
Allen-Stevenson’s commitment to an inclusive educational community informs our admissions policies, our hiring practices, our curriculum, and the allocation of our resources.
