The Independent Day School is committed to discovering, cultivating, and celebrating diversity in its many forms throughout our community and seeks to foster an atmosphere of personal and cross-cultural curiosity.
As an academic institution, IDS embraces the diversity of learning styles.
We nurture exploration and understanding of identity through culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, national origin, political ideology, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.
In this spirit, IDS is devoted to actively nurturing inclusive environments in which students will develop an appreciation for the rich diversity of this school and mindsets/skill sets preparing them for global citizenship and intercultural communication.
We dedicate ourselves to being a community in which all members are encouraged to express themselves, are given respect, and can clearly see their identities reflected and affirmed in the curriculum, co-curriculum and general school environment.
