At The School in Rose Valley, we believe that diversity strengthens us as we work, play, and learn together. We strive to understand and value a diverse world while building a community of mutual respect. — Diversity Statement
The staff at The School in Rose Valley (SRV) aspires to cultivate a community in which all members, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, or cultural background, feel embraced, valued, empowered, and validated.
Within our own school community, students, teachers, and staff members discuss real issues related to every aspect of diversity. We seek and strive for diversity among our students, staff, and extended community members.
SRV’s participation in the Greater Philadelphia Diversity Collaborative (GPDC) connects us with our own students and peer schools through planning and hosting conferences such as “Nurturing Critically Engaged Citizens: Preschool to – Second – Grade Educator’s Diversity Summit” and “The Elementary Student Diversity Day: Pieces of the Puzzle,” a conference for students in grades 3rd – 6th.
SRV teachers, students, and staff members partner with local organizations to create experiences that are mutually beneficial and true, ongoing partnerships. We are committed to ensuring that issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion remain prominent at our School.
