Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI)

Woodlynde School is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion in order that its students and colleagues achieve their full potential.

We believe that everyone's unique life experience and background adds valuable perspective to our community and that our community is stronger because of the differences represented by our students, colleagues, and families. We embrace community members of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, gender identities and expressions, physical and learning abilities, languages, national origins, political affiliations, sexual orientations, and socio-economic statuses.

Woodlynde School is a safe space with a zero-tolerance policy toward identity-based harassment of any kind. In addition to adopting non-discrimination best practices, Woodlynde School seeks to proactively include community members of all backgrounds through its curriculum, colleague development, hiring practices, admissions, and event programming.*
*Woodlynde School is by no means claiming to be an expert in diversity, equity, and inclusion. This page serves as a declaration of our intention to learn and grow every day in order to become better allies, anti-racists, and supporters of social justice.
