Privacy and Respect of Diversity at Merryfield
Diversity is a multidimensional, all-encompassing concept that recognizes and embraces the richness of human differences. As a practical matter, it is important that Merryfield School define diversity with sufficient clarity, given the inherent obscurity of the term and the frequently misinformed discussions that surround it.
The term “diversity” is not a code for race, ethnicity, or gender by themselves. While Merryfield school board’s concept of diversity may include these factors, it is far more inclusive, surrounding significant qualities and capabilities that can influence learning in and out of the classroom.
Merryfield School’s Workplace Equity and Performance seeks to embrace diversity and strengthen our community across local, national and global settings. In an educational institution, the diversity of experience, diversity of opinion and diversity of culture background not only enrich our quest for knowledge, they are vital to our success.
Merryfield recognizes the significance of honoring differences year-round by creating a comprehensive environment that fosters appreciation and respect for the varied celebrations related to holidays and other events. Our Diversity agenda list holidays, various festivities, holidays and Holy days drawn from a variety of sources and we hope that it will oblige as a facilitator for cooperation and learning.
