Equity & Diversity
Central to Evergreen’s mission is respect for the worth and dignity of every person. It directly follows that Evergreen is committed to the ideals of equity, diversity and social justice in all aspects of our program. We seek to be a diverse community of many voices and experiences. And we recognize the importance of family, nationality, religion, race, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status in our inclusive community.
At Evergreen, our global education curriculum seeks to provide sufficient perspective on the diversity of human experience so that students come to appreciate the complexity and interconnectedness of the world around us.
Our classroom curriculum places special emphasis on the study of culture. Around the calendar, classroom activities include special presentations of holidays from across the world. One day, children may participate in a Diwali celebration, the next day we might light a Menorah, celebrate St. Nicholas Day or Eid. Every child feels valued because every child is valued.
In order to celebrate our multi-cultural and inclusive community, Evergreen holds several special events throughout the year. Programs include guest speakers and presentations, cultural field trips, International Day celebrations, and more.
