Statement on Diversity
Diversity develops thinking that values alternative viewpoints and is sensitive to life experiences, feelings, hopes and the challenges of others. Recognizing and capitalizing on the diversity that exists within our school, our region, our nation and our world enhances the Greenhill community.
Greenhill actively seeks opportunities for interaction and meaningful dialogue to minimize disparities and to foster equality. The School honors its commitment to inclusion through admission policies, hiring practices, professional development and curriculum. The Board, administration, faculty, staff, parents and students are committed to a positive, pluralistic environment where the academic and social well being of all students is affirmed and assured.
Diversity at Greenhill reflects the core principles of honor, respect, and compassion, and values the customs, traditions, and perspectives of people of different gender, race, ethnicity, ability, age, religion, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status. Greenhill supports diversity as the essential component of a quality education that encourages respect and empowerment of the individual and discourages the formation of stereotypes and prejudices. Through our steadfast commitment to diversity, Greenhill broadens the educational experience of all students. Greenhill further believes that our commitment to diversity is an ongoing process, which will continue to strengthen and enhance our school.
