Diversity at Sayre
Diversity Mission Statement
Located in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, Sayre School recognizes and respects the diversity of backgrounds, outlooks, and talents individuals bring to its community. Sayre defines diversity as differences embodied in (but not limited to) age, ethnicity and race, family status, gender, geographic origin, learning styles, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status. This list is adapted from the Independent Schools Association of the Central States' publication "Diversity and Multiculturalism: Broadening Our Perspective."
Sayre strives to enrich its community through diversity within all of its constituencies: students, faculty, administrators, and trustees.
Sayre seeks to create an educational atmosphere of understanding and open dialogue that fosters respect for individual differences. As part of the school's overall mission - to provide "an education of the widest range and highest order" - Sayre's curriculum presents topics from multiple perspectives, acknowledging and including many different cultures, ideas, and experiences found in our global society. Such an education involves the development of independent, critical thinking within an open-minded and tolerant learning environment.
Adopted by the Sayre School Board of Trustees September 10, 2003.
