Greenhills School was founded during the modern civil rights era with racial equality as a central part of the vision of its founders. Today, the vision is continued through the promotion of diversity as integral to the ethos and practices of the school. We believe people from different races, cultures, socio-economic backgrounds, genders, physical capacities, religions and sexual orientations are sources of strength that enrich teaching and learning at Greenhills. Greenhills strives to build a diverse learning community by integrating different ideas, thoughts, personal gifts, life experiences and talents into the classroom and other programs of the school.

The co-directors of the Diversity Program are Nadine Hall and Kelly Williams. The Office of Diversity designs innovative, student-centered programming in order to promote acceptance and awareness of all forms of diversity within our community and our world. In addition to joining activities such as clubs like Gay/Straight Alliance and affinity groups such as African American Focus, students have opportunities to participate in events that address topics such as socio-economic status, cultural identity, feminism, and current events. Social justice and equity issues are integral companions to the high quality, content-based academic education that we offer at Greenhills. The work done by the Office of Diversity is central to fulfilling our mission to create “curious, creative, and responsible citizens who respect all individuals and their differences.”
