Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is inextricably linked with our educational philosophy—we believe that deep learning happens within a collaborative community built upon mutual respect.

Our DEI Mission

Riverbend School believes in the importance of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice in our community. By embracing differences, valuing multiple perspectives, and developing a profound appreciation for our humanity, we hope to ensure that our campus spaces are safe and respectful for all children, families, and employees. 

Our DEI Vision

  • Create and sustain a diverse community of faculty, staff, students, and families
  • Root our Montessori curriculum in developing the whole child, through practicing grace and courtesy, peace education, and multiculturalism
  • Develop our awareness of implicit bias by rejecting stereotypes and prejudice
  • Promote anti-bias educational practices
  • Appreciate difference and interconnection
  • Guide children to become global citizens who stand up for social justice
