Diversity & Inclusivity Statement
Mountain Phoenix Community School supports and embraces diversity in all its forms, including differences in ethnicity, cultural and religious heritage, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, geographic origin, and family structure. We will provide our students with a rich, inclusive curriculum that reflects the world in which we live and fosters a safe atmosphere where every member of the community is respected and multiple viewpoints can be peacefully expressed.
Diversity within our community is an asset. For this reason, we actively cultivate this diversity in all aspects of school life including the composition of our student body, faculty, curriculum, administration, and Governing Council. We commit to work through the tensions that arise in the midst of genuine community and to use those tensions as a vehicle to critically and fearlessly self-reflect.
We believe this commitment to diversity will help prepare today’s children for tomorrow’s world. Our commitment to diversity and inclusiveness is integrated into our community’s core values, and we hold ourselves accountable to operating in alignment with those values.
