Diversity and Inclusion Program
The purpose ISW’s Diversity and Inclusion Program is to foster the emotional intelligence of our faculty, staff, students, and parents through ongoing communication, education, and training about the importance of having a strong understanding of self, diversity and acceptance. This is particularly important in an international school like ISW, as our school is a kaleidoscope of cultures, languages and nationalities.
ISW strives to create a school environment where all people are valued and all perspectives are respected. Our international roots encourage us to teach our children the values of inclusion, equity and justice, as well as to model these attributes in all that we do. In this way, we are better equipped to shape young people into global citizens, prepared to apply their learning in thoughtful and relevant ways.
We recognize that diversity includes everyone and has many dimensions, including, but not limited to: gender, geography, learning style, physical challenges, race, ethnicity, politics, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, and diverse gifts and talents.
ISW stands by, Esse Quam Videri or “To Be, Rather Than To Seem To Be”. Meaning, our mission is to instill in each child a sense of responsibility and moral obligation towards others in a genuine, reflective and compassionate way.
