Orchard Valley Waldorf School’s Diversity Statement

Orchard Valley Waldorf School commits to making our school a place where families, faculty, and staff of diverse backgrounds feel welcomed and expressly valued. We define diversity as the broad spectrum of cultures, races, ethnicities, language speakers, genders, sexual orientation, religions and creeds, socioeconomic backgrounds, and abilities that together make up our communities, country, and the world.

We are committed to deepening our understanding of privilege and how it affects our pedagogy and our society, to taking up the work necessary to dismantle systems of oppression, and to be advocates for inclusive communities. Embracing diversity in our daily practices elevates the experience for every member of our community and builds relevance and compassion for life in our ever-changing world.
