Diversity and Inclusion
The Pennington School is committed to diversity in its curriculum, faculty, staff, and student body.
Social justice is an ongoing discussion in Chapel, in classrooms, and in the hallways. We differ in race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical and learning differences, religion, and socioeconomic class.
But we share common values, goals, history, and relationships.
The purpose of the Diversity Office is to enrich our School through increased knowledge of, respect for, and cooperation among different cultures and a valuing of diverse perspectives within our community, by addressing issues of prejudice about race and ethnicity, gender, age, physical and learning differences, sexual orientation, religion, and class. We provide leadership and a safe space to discuss diversity in all its forms at The Pennington School. The overall goal is to help students, staff, faculty, and administrators transcend differences while recognizing common values, goals, history, and relationships.
