Inclusion and Equity at Paideia

Diversity Framework

The Paideia School is committed to inclusion and equity. We are developing our support within a foundation of a pluralistic community and including more opportunities for students, parents and faculty to face Inclusion and Equity at Paideia - Mandalaissues in our world. We are committed to living our Framework of Values as a learning community.

As a community we understand that we flourish when we bring our whole self to school. We take pride in dialogue that directly involves issues of race, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and a myriad of other differences that strengthen our community. Our emphasis on compassion, empathy and the development of the ethical self guides us in our pursuit of an inclusive school community and directly aligns with our Framework of Values such as those listed below.

Social Responsibility

We are committed to direct conversation about issues concerning social inequality and injustice. The only way to raise the consciousness of our community is by understanding how we are affected by the world around us, and ways we can effect change.

Developing the Ethical Self and Egalitarianism

We are committed to equipping our students with the tools to interpret and investigate the world around us. We are diligent in providing our faculty and staff with the best practices in order to help guide students on their quest toward an egalitarian community and world.

Empathy

As a community we understand that addressing these huge problems takes work both individually as well as collectively. We are striving to become a school that recognizes and respects our differences as well as champions our commonalities.

“Inclusion work is not something to be subcontracted to a few people. It belongs to all of us; it is our collective responsibility to achieve improvement in this area.

- Paul Bianchi, Head of School.
