commitment to diversity
Park Place Community School’s commitment to diversity requires the support and participation of our entire community. The daily work of students, staff and parents draws a direct line to our vision of a more equitable, diverse, harmonious, and inclusive world.
Our goal is to create and maintain a school culture that welcomes, recognizes, and celebrates diversity in all of its forms, including, but not limited to, diversity of socio-economic background, culture, physical appearance, race, national or ethnic background, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, family structure, religion, perspective, physical disability, learning style, linguistic difference, and age.
We strive to foster trust, empathy, and conscientiousness through our pedagogy, operations, and activities, both inside the classroom and in our larger school community. In addition, we continually examine how bias and privilege affect our perceptions of the world around us and what we can do to challenge and change any biases we might currently hold, no matter how discomforting they may be to confront.
