Inclusion at Collegiate means consistent work across all areas of school life and curriculum to ensure that all members of its community feel fully respected and valued, and that our students develop the skills to thrive and lead in a diverse society. Our diversity reflects differences in identity that determine our experiences as community members. Dimensions of diversity include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, ability/disability, socioeconomic status and sexual orientation. Collegiate strives to instill in its students the ability to be flexible in using different lenses to make sense of the world. Collegiate emphasizes these divisional focus areas to create an inclusive community which values diversity: Grades JK-4: Developing empathy; Grades 5-8: Building a sense of community and understanding multiple perspectives; Grades 9-12: Affirming one’s personal identity; feeling like a valued member of the Collegiate community; examining social issues and engaging multiple perspectives to be a contributing member of the Collegiate community and beyond.
