Commitment to diversity and inclusion lies at the very heart of the MICDS Mission and Strategic Plan.
As our School’s Mission states, “More than ever our nation needs responsible men and women who can meet the challenges of this world with confidence and embrace all its people with compassion.”
The number one Strategic Plan priority “Transformative Student Experience” includes the goal of preparing students “for lives of purpose and service as engaged and informed world citizens and courageous, compassionate leaders”
, with an objective to develop cultural competencies in our student body. This powerful call to action helps inform our intentional efforts at every grade level to provide a transformative experience, that honors each individual while celebrating the rich diversity of our full school community.
