Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Childpeace is committed to ongoing work to address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our community. We value the diversity of our families, students and staff. We believe these values are essential to student success.
Childpeace Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, physical or mental ability, or any other status protected under local, state or federal laws in the admission of otherwise qualified students or in the administration of its educational policies or programs, hiring or employment practices.
You are encouraged to bring questions, comments and concerns to the attention of the school. You can raise concerns and make reports in good faith without fear. All reports will be investigated promptly in as confidential a manner as possible.
