Diversity Statement
At MPFS we are committed to continually seeking knowledge and understanding through the diversity of our students, faculty, staff, families, and community. We are rooted in the Quaker belief that there is that of God in each person. In our community, we actively include everyone and their differences. We strive to bring out the best in each other and ourselves by intentionally teaching children to celebrate their unique selves. This includes their families, their lives, their accomplishments, and equally as important, the unique lives and accomplishments of others. By listening, responding, being open, and seeking out differences we all learn from, and with each other. Our diversity enables our community to grow, expand and create. Our diversity is what unites us.
