The Shore Country Day School community is united in its strong commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice in every aspect of the life of the school. As part of its mission, Shore pledges, “We seek to … value diversity as we help our children become healthy, compassionate citizens of the world.” Shore believes this promise requires all individuals to take action, and so we educate ourselves and our students to recognize and address inequity, discrimination, and systems of oppression. The following Equity & Inclusion Commitment guides our daily actions to live more inclusive and purposeful lives as individuals and as a community:
We are a safe community that empowers the exploration and expression of our true selves.
We thrive because we confront bias and honor the diverse identities of all people.
We pursue individual and systemic cultural competence in order to model equity leadership in a complex world.
The three parts of this pledge reflect Shore’s commitment to equity, inclusion, and justice for individuals, within our community, and in the larger world.
