We believe all students thrive best in a culture of vibrant diversity. We value every member of our community and celebrate many traditions, which helps us guide our students in becoming responsible world citizens. Our commitment to learning about and respecting one another's diversity brings distinct richness to students, alumni, employees, parents and our community.
All of our students, regardless of the grade of entry, study multiple languages, whether through our immersion programs in French and Spanish at the Early Learning level, continuing intensive language study in Lower School, or through our numerous offerings—Arabic, Dutch, English, Farsi, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Norwegian, Portuguese, and Russian—in Middle School and Upper School.
