Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Walnut Hill seeks to cultivate a spirit of inclusivity and multiculturalism by weaving diverse curriculum, programming, and practices into the academic, artistic, and social fabric of the school. We believe it is critical to educate members of our community to be responsible global citizens. In order to navigate the tensions and challenges of our world, it is imperative to understand where we each came from, where we are, and where we are going.

We promote a sense of worth and belonging in everyone. We ask that all members of the school community consider those who are marginalized. We ask all members to attend thoughtfully to instances of difference including but not limited to opinion, age, ability, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, race, and religion. We expect community members to both form and express their own viewpoints, consider and understand divergent perspectives, and confront difference with maturity, civility, and respect.
