Why is Diversity Important?

  • Numerous studies have demonstrated that the diversity of a school directly contributes to the quality of its students’ education.
  • Exposed to a variety of perspectives, students learn to think critically, to challenge their assumptions, and to explore alternative approaches and solutions to real world problems. We know as well that children grow best when they feel wholly safe and wholly welcome. Students bring their personal backgrounds and histories to the classroom and their classmates and their teachers are richer for that gift.
  • The diversity of our community is matched by our emphasis on multicultural education and our ongoing focus on the lived experience of our students and teachers inside and outside the walls of the school. The awareness that we live in a global community, and that contributions to our society have come from every corner of the globe and every strata of society, is woven into the KCD curriculum. At KCD, we prepare our students to live in the world.
