Diversity & Inclusion

At Wilkinson School we work thoughtfully and continuously to live our core values of diversity and inclusion so that everyone feels welcomed and valued. We start at the highest level with a guiding vision developed by our Board. We then take that vision into our everyday activities.

At Wilkinson School, we want our students to thrive in a changing, diverse, and multicultural world. As an elementary school we prepare them for this by:

Nurturing curiosity and modeling respect for all life experiences

Sustaining a welcoming and caring culture

Celebrating, promoting and appreciating our differences and similarities

Striving to reflect the diversity of our surrounding community in our students, faculty, administration, staff, families and Board of Directors
