Diversity Statement

Respect, kindness, and empathy are paramount for building a strong, safe, and inclusive community that prepares students for lives in a multicultural society. Winston understands that personal and professional growth demand authenticity, integrity, freedom of expression, and civility of discourse. In delivering its educational program, Winston is committed to both recognizing the interdependence of each individual and group with the other members of the community as well as upholding its non-discrimination policy.

Enhancing Winston’s Diversity Education: The Launch of A.B.I.D.E.

List of 1 items.

  • The Winston school believes in a culture that embraces diversity and acceptance in all aspects of our society.  

    Our dedication is steadfast to educate our children on acceptance and tolerance, promote inclusiveness and open-minded thinking, and spread kindness. Across all school divisions, we have launched a new curricular program, ABIDE, to support our school’s commitment to diversity and acceptance within and beyond our community. ABIDE represents Acceptance, Belonging, Inclusivity, Diversity, and Equity.

    Our administrators and teachers are delivering the program across grade levels in a developmentally appropriate sequence. Foundational skills and conceptual understanding of concepts begin in the Primary and Lower Schools, where students participate in varied lessons and activities that teach students to live, learn, and work together in a vibrant and diverse world. In the Middle School, pillars of character education and citizenship, which comprise our Winston “Roots,” are accompanied by a more comprehensive analysis of inclusion, acceptance, and an appreciation for varied perspectives of a diverse population. Collectively, these principles are embedded throughout the academic curriculum and complementary activities. Winston is proud of our ongoing commitment to supporting a culture that reflects, embraces, and celebrates the uniqueness of every individual.
