  • What it Means to be a World School

    With more than 60 countries and cultures represented on campus, Alcuin School is dedicated to elevating social justice awareness while continuing to educate the community about our supportive and inclusive environment. Through the Montessori and International Baccalaureate philosophies, Alcuin naturally promotes opportunities to celebrate the qualities that make each of us unique and strives to honor and respect diversity of thought and the inclusion of all. 

    The school respects the diversity of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, ability, sexual orientation, and socio-economic conditions that enrich our world. Alcuin is deeply committed to inclusion through admission policies, hiring practices, professional development, curriculum, and programs. The Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, staff, parents, and students strive to promote a positive, pluralistic environment where the intellectual, social, and emotional well-being of all people is affirmed and assured.

    Alcuin’s Director of Equity and Inclusion chairs a committee that is active throughout the community. Its members include students, parents, faculty and staff and representatives from the Board of Trustees. A sub-committee of students in 6th grade through high school participates in the implementation of programs. Programs consist of parent education, student discussions, and faculty and staff training.
