Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION AND ACCESS (DEIA) STATEMENT
The Valley School honors diversity, practices inclusion, and invites courageous conversations. We strive to create a community where each individual is valued, respected, and included. Though the journey can be muddy—much like our playground—we aim to give every child the tools necessary to flourish.
THE VALLEY SCHOOL DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION AND ACCESS DEFINITIONS
Because the way a school may define these words can be different, The Valley School has intentionally described how we approach the work we do in each one of these areas as the following:
At Valley, we strive to eliminate barriers and forge pathways to allow students and families to fully engage in school life, both inside and outside the classroom. We respect and appreciate the diverse characteristics of each student and we strive to create an environment where playful work, purposeful play, and the practice of community can take place.
