Why is Inclusion Important?

Numerous studies have demonstrated that the diversity of a school directly contributes to the quality of its students’ education. Exposed to a variety of perspectives, students learn to think critically, to challenge their assumptions, and to explore alternative approaches and solutions to real world problems. We know as well that children grow best when they feel wholly safe and wholly welcome. Students bring their personal backgrounds and histories to the classroom and their classmates and their teachers are richer for that gift.
Since our founding in 1886, The White Mountain School has prided itself in its Episcopal heritage which calls for our community to, 
 
“Strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the
 dignity of every human being.”
 
 (Book of Common Prayer, p.294)
 
 
It is out of this responsibility that we are proud of our community's work in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
