Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Statement

Our Commitment to a Diverse, Equitable, Inclusive Community

Issaquah Montessori School is committed to being a community where children, families, and staff with different backgrounds, identities, and perspectives are united in their efforts to maintain a respectful, inclusive, diverse, and equitable community.  Montessori education places value on the uniqueness of each individual, and seeks to develop life-long learners who pursue their passions, practice empathy and care for our planet. We believe our community is broadened, strengthened, and enlightened by diversity in all its forms—including thought, race, religion, identity, passions, and challenges.

Montessori values and principles include:

  • A deep respect for all life and for childhood particularly
  • A quest to make the world a better place through the development of each generation
  • A sense of responsibility for the earth and all who inhabit it
  • A commitment to community through engagement, deep listening, and sharing
