Diversity, equity and inclusion are central to all that we do.

Our Commitment to Diversity

Our vision for The Evergreen School is for its members to value and embrace the dignity and diversity of all people. We actively seek and support students, families, faculty, staff and trustees who bring a diversity of identity into our community.

Our mission makes it essential that we skillfully deliver an inclusive educational program that
  • teaches respect for others, 
  • empowers students of all backgrounds equitably, 
  • encourages social responsibility, and 
  • prepares students to be leaders in an interdependent global community.

We recognize there is a critical difference between merely opening doors of opportunity and creating a sustained pathway toward success. At Evergreen, our goal is to curate a culture where every family feels fully welcomed and encouraged to participate in every aspect of the community.

In preparing our students for a diverse and complex world, we strive to intentionally incorporate issues of equity and social justice throughout our curriculum and across all grade levels. We encourage and support courageous conversations among the members of our community to promote greater cross-cultural understanding.

Our commitment to diversity is both a vital opportunity for our highly capable students and a fundamental responsibility for our entire community.

This commitment is affirmed by the board (see our Strategic Plan), head of school, administration, faculty and staff of The Evergreen School.

What Is Diversity at Evergreen?

We believe diversity is the range of identities that are represented in the school community. It is who we are.

These characteristics include, but are not limited to: race, ethnicity, sex, national origin, geographic background, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, learning style, personality, family makeup, and socioeconomic status.
