Interested in exploring our educational approach?
At DCD, we define diversity as an umbrella term that includes race, gender, age, ethnicity, culture, nationality, sexual orientation, social and economic class, physical and learning differences, and religion, as well as other characteristics that contribute to each individual’s full identity.
We strive to provide a multicultural education, which celebrates the diversity of our community and the larger world. At DCD, respect permeates all aspects of school life. We want children to learn to understand and value multiple perspectives, identify and reject stereotypes and prejudices, and work for equity and justice. Dedham Country Day is strongly committed to ensuring a sense of community in which every member is safe, valued, and treated with dignity. We believe that a broad range of experiences and viewpoints enhances learning and enriches life.
