Meeting and Working with a Diverse Community

Our children are growing up in a socially and culturally diverse community. In 1990, 74% of the student population was white, compared to 47% by 2015, and the percentage of Hispanic students grew during that time from 3% to 14%. Recognizing and appreciating this diversity is key to a successful education. Grounded in a global vision, Montessori schools embrace diversity and the gifts that each family’s traditions and culture add to the school community.

Montessori schools also value the diversity that each child’s interest and affinities bring to the classroom community. Montessori classrooms personalize learning, allowing children to develop their gifts and to work on their challenges.

Sussex Montessori School seeks to make diversity a strength, and to develop a school that will present a true cross-section of our vibrant and growing Sussex community.
