Spartanburg Day School is committed to being purposeful in cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive community where all individuals are accepted, respected and valued.
Spartanburg Day School students across all three divisions are engaged in fun and informative activities to mark Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 - Oct. 15. Below are just a few examples of celebrations within our classrooms.
Fifteen Upper School students participated in the 2021 Virtual Low Country Student Diversity Conference today. Students spent the day hearing from speakers, participating in workshops and joining in cohort and affinity groups. The conference was open to ninth-12th grade students to support the idea of leadership on and off campus as well as conflict resolution, cultural competency, social justice and equity.
Eight Spartanburg Day School faculty members and four students attended National Association of Independent Schools conferences this week aimed at diversity and inclusion.
