Community & Diversity

Belmont Hill School’s commitment to diversity is empowered by the synergy of our community. The collective identities and perspectives of our students, faculty, and staff create a unifying force that celebrates, educates, and enriches each member of the Belmont Hill family.
 
We do not define diversity with statistics of students, nor do we attempt to categorize our constituencies to affirm an impression of requirement. Diversity lives within our community; it demonstrates the mantra of “working together” that anchors our Mission Statement and invigorates the spirit that makes Belmont Hill an exceptional place for the mind to grow.
The bond between community and diversity begins by encouraging the students to realize who they are as individuals. We want each member of our community to understand that the development of a strong sense of self is imperative for the genuine recognition of the cultures, ideas, and conditions that make everyone unique. This process generates a pluralistic dialogue that enables students to become more aware of how each individual is essential to the social and cognitive diversity that enhances the Belmont Hill community.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding community and diversity at Belmont Hill.

Summer 2020 - Parent Webinar

Recent events calling attention to racial injustice across the nation and closer to home have galvanized our school community to undertake a closer examination of the experiences of our students of color. Belmont Hill alumni and current students have opened the dialogue through letters to the School, social media posts, and conversations with the Head of School and others. 

Mr. Schneider and Mr. Collins discuss with parents what action steps Belmont Hill has taken and what lies ahead for our school community. We are committed to an ongoing process of discovery and change and hope our parent community will join us in these essential conversations.
