Commitment to Diversity

Grounded in the Quaker principle of honoring that of God in everyone and a dedication to social justice, New Garden Friends School seeks to be a part of a greater community that embraces diversity in all of its dimensions. Our belief in the power and promise of diversity encompasses people of different religious beliefs, economic and cultural backgrounds, races, nationalities, sexual orientations, genders, gender identities, gender expressions, physical and mental abilities, and ages.

Diversity also refers to the various ways that families can be configured. Our community is made up of traditional families, families with same-sex parents, and families headed by grandparents and other family members. These different kinds of families are celebrated through curriculum content and social activities. 

When Dale and I were considering adoption, one of my greatest fears was that our kids might endure discrimination because of our relationship. At NGFS, I know, they will never experience discrimination. - Bob Page, NGFS parent, owner of Replacements, Ltd.
