Equity and Inclusion
Since its founding in 1967, Carroll School has been dedicated to affirming the experiences of different learners. However, we recognize that our students' identities are comprised of more than just their language-based learning differences. They come from a variety of different cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds, family structures, experiences and communities that influence their day-to-day lives.
At Carroll School, we value, appreciate, and celebrate difference and strive to create a community that is safe and reflective of the rich and robust diversity of our 21st century world.
Our mission - to provide what each child most needs - recognizes that academic excellence is directly tied to a deep understanding and awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We aim to produce citizens of the world who are culturally responsive, possess a multicultural lens, and are equipped and empowered to affect social change.
Therefore, this challenge extends to our approaches towards pedagogy and classroom practices, systems and protocols involving the hiring and retention of faculty and staff, admissions, support of financial assistance and other need-based programs, and all other forms of school life.
