Diversity, Inclusivity and Respect
The needs of mankind are universal. Our means of meeting them create the richness and diversity of the planet. The Montessori child should come to relish the texture of that diversity.Maria Montessori
At SMS, Diversity, Inclusivity and Respect are not just part of our core values, they are the tenets that represent who we are as a community.
Our school is comprised of a diverse range of people, cultures, and languages. This creates a natural and unique sense of global awareness as it is part of who we are on a daily basis. We are proud to celebrate and acknowledge international holidays, celebrations and traditions. Our teachers are also proud to share their heritage, with many speaking more than one language, including: Mandarin, Farsi, French, Spanish, Gujarati, Urdu, Persian, Romanian, Vietnamese, Korean, and American Sign Language.
We believe that by recognizing, respecting, sharing and appreciating our similarities and differences, we grow and flourish. SMS is proud to be a community that fosters self-confidence and respect for self, others, the environment and our world.
