Diversity Statement

At Westminster School, diversity encompasses respect, compassion, engagement, and growth. Through diversity, we embrace intellectual curiosity, cultivate empathy for those around us, and seek courage to overcome whatever challenges we may face on our own or in support of others. We commit to diversity in education and provide programs that deepen cultural competency, expand global understanding, and foster a resilient and dynamic community.

Diversity builds and sustains us. Our community is an inclusive environment where people can share their stories and contribute their ideas. We encourage our students to be authentic, to feel inspired to learn from those different from them, and to celebrate diversity and multiculturalism. At Westminster School, diversity includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, cultural identity, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, physical ability, and religious practice.

We firmly stand on the four pillars of our Core Values: Community, Character, Balance, and Involvement. The success of each is dependent on the others, and diversity strengthens them all.
