The Country School is committed to being an inclusive and equitable community enriched by the diversity of all constituencies — students, families, faculty, trustees, and staff. We respect the customs, traditions, values, and perspectives of individuals of different gender, race, religion, socioeconomic status, family configuration, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability, and age. The school expects members of our community to be guided by moral courage, empathy, and compassion, values which foster inclusion and prepare all to be active citizens of a complex and dynamic world.
