Guided by The Bement School mission, the school is committed to creating a diverse coeducational community of students, faculty, staff, administrators, and trustees representing a breadth of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, family structure, socioeconomic status, and religious affiliation. The school seeks to provide an inclusive environment in which to foster mutual respect and understanding within our school and the world around us.
Bement’s student-created diversity mural carries the words “Hope,” “Acceptance,” “Courage,” and “Trust.” The message of this mural is one that Bement takes to heart, and it is a huge part of what makes Bement such a unique school. We’re committed to maintaining an open, inclusive, and diverse community of students, faculty, and families, making The Bement School welcome to all.
The Diversity Committee, comprised of faculty and staff, supports Bement’s commitment to its mission and meets monthly to discuss ongoing opportunities to expand our diversity. Areas of discussion include: professional development opportunities; support for faculty, students, and families; curriculum review; and support for school-wide efforts to broaden awareness and inclusiveness at Bement.
