Sterling Montessori values diversity, prioritizes equity, and commits to being an inclusive school community which is critical to meeting our Montessori mission and affirming the full humanity of all community members.
We envision our community will value diverse perspectives and celebrate differences that honor every unique individual. We approach this work with humility, actively seeking to understand the complex and rich identities of self and others.
We commit to ongoing education, open dialogue, self-reflection, and curricula that embraces diversity and inclusion as we guide our students in becoming responsible and engaged citizens of the world. We will proactively and continually evaluate and refine our policies and practices and will dedicate the appropriate resources to ensure we embody these beliefs every day.
Guided by these principles, we are intentional in advocating for and engaging all community members around our multiple identities, including but not limited to: race, age, gender identity and expression, ethnicity, family background and composition, ability/disability, language, learning styles, religion, sexuality, and socioeconomic status.
