Numerous studies have demonstrated that the diversity of a school directly contributes to the quality of its students' education. Exposed to a variety of perspectives, students learn to think critically, to challenge their assumptions, and to explore many approaches and solutions.
Multiple voices and differing backgrounds at Morristown-Beard School are integral to our strong academic program. As outlined in the most recent Strategic Plan, MBS is committed to ensuring accessibility and developing a school culture and curriculum best suited to a globally-oriented and diverse population of faculty, staff and students.
Students, faculty, staff and parents are actively involved in supporting diversity at MBS and ensuring that every student and family feels that they are full and welcomed members of the community. The School both supports affinity groups that recognize shared experiences and promotes cross-cultural dialogue through a range of activities and programs.
For the past several years, Morristown-Beard students and faculty have attended diversity conferences sponsored by the National Association of Independent Schools. In 2010, a Morristown-Beard student was chosen to serve as a facilitator at the conference.
Diversity and inclusion advance the School’s mission, help our students reach their full potential, and enhance our contributions to the greater community.
