CODI, our Community of Diversity and Inclusivity is a school board-level committee. The Wesley School is committed to diversity because, as a whole, all students benefit from the knowledge and experiences that a diverse community provides. Diversity is vital for the success of independent schools such as ours, and Wesley follows the National Association of Independent Schools’ (NAIS) view in regards to “why” diversity matters:
- Diversity prepares our students to thrive in a global multicultural community and encourages academic excellence for all students.
- Diversity helps teachers be more effective by adopting strategies that help support students’ uniqueness.
- Independent schools benefit from diversity because it helps them prepare today’s young students to seize the world stage of tomorrow.
At The Wesley School we value and nurture diversity. We focus on being multicultural through events and programs that support diversity and inclusivity, which helps our school grow and develop. CODI focuses on ways to promote and cultivate diversity within our community!
