|What Does Inclusion and Diversity Mean at The Hill School |
At The Hill School, not only do we look to acknowledge and celebrate diversity, we seek to make everyone feel included and welcome. Every member of our school, including students, faculty, and staff should feel respected and loved for their unique identities that make our community strong. We believe that all community members should feel safe and welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, or ability.
The Hill School Inclusion Statement | The Hill School believes in fostering an open, diverse and inclusive community. We stand together, committed to making our students, faculty, and staff members feel respected and valued for every aspect of who they are. We recognize and support all of the Hill community and affiliates regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability. We will provide a safe environment committed to civility and mutual respect in which individuals are accepted, empowered, and supported. We will furthermore seek to develop students who are prepared to interact within a diverse and globally minded society. We believe inclusion encourages an informed, global perspective, an essential trait we seek to cultivate in every student, faculty member, and staff member. We, The Family Boarding School, make it our mission to ensure every member of our family feels welcomed, included, and safe.
