Diversity is an essential element of an excellent education and a central tenet of our Mission Statement: “At Charles River School, we…respect ourselves and others, and prepare children to be active participants in our diverse world.”

Diversity encompasses differences in the human family including: cultural heritages, family structures, gender, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and socio-economic backgrounds.

We commit ourselves to:

  • Cultivating diversity throughout our curriculum, our student body, and our faculty and staff;
  • Deepening our knowledge and appreciation of diversity;
  • Providing an environment and an education that prepares children to become successful, contributing members of a global society;
  • Understanding both historical and current implications of diversity, power, and privilege;
  • Engaging in this complex work with careful thought and an enduring commitment.
