On Monday, October 15, Middle School students gathered in the gym to kick off our Diversity and Global Awareness initiative. This initiative is designed to prepare our students to develop confidence and comfort as leaders who are prepared for the future to be globally minded, culturally aware, and respectful of diversity, through gender, race, religion, ethnic background and country of origin. Students listened to a panel and heard stories of individuals with unique experiences about their different lives and reflected on how they honor and respect differences.
Part of Corbett Prep's philosophy is to foster each child's capacity for learning, to help him or her grow morally, spiritually, and emotionally as well as physically and intellectually. By recognizing children's differences, we will take the necessary steps to ensure that we are contributing to their full social development.
