Diversity and Inclusion

The Nightingale-Bamford School is committed to diversity in an educational environment of responsibility, mutual respect, and empathy.

We value individuals whose differences include, but are not limited to, age, ethnicity, family structure, gender, learning style, physical ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. Fulfilling this mission is an ongoing process requiring active participation and frequent dialogue.

All members of the Nightingale community—students past and present, faculty and staff, administrators, parents, and trustees—are expected to keep their minds and hearts open to difference as a source of strength and a means of growth.

Diversity Curriculum

An education based in a sense of diversity and inclusivity begins at Nightingale in the earliest grades and continues through Class XII. For a closer look at how Nightingale prepares students in each division to be citizens in a changing world, click on the expandable sections below.
