Our commitment to diversity

Awareness of and respect for individual differences are embedded in our Montessori philosophy and curriculum. WMS seeks to acknowledge the uniqueness of each person’s experience and background within the broad spectrum of humanity. We do this by creating a culture of appreciation and mutual respect, acceptance and a commitment to human rights and to free and open inquiry. Our commitment to diversity extends throughout the school community, including students, families, employees, Family Alliance and the Board of Trustees. It is not enough to limit this commitment to curriculum and teaching methods; it must be evident in our culture and in how we conduct all business and social affairs of the school. The admissions, business, communications and development staff intentionally consider the diversity in our community when making plans and decisions.
