Cannon’s diversity statement is rooted in the conviction that learning, leadership potential, and life’s experiences are all enhanced when a community pledges to take the time to understand individual differences and to build bridges so that everyone knows he or she belongs.
 
The Administrative Team at Cannon, in concert with the Diversity Committee, an active body comprised of teachers, students, parents, and trustees, work together to talk about opportunities that maximize each student’s learning, equip teachers to prepare their students for the global community, and bring parents into this most important conversation.
 
Through curriculum, advisory, student designed programs, parent conversations, assemblies, and training, Cannon seeks daily to help students feel at home with diversity.

Diversity Statement

 
Many Perspectives. One Foundation. Going Beyond By Respecting Each Other.

We believe having a commitment to diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do and is essential to providing a full and complete Cannon School educational experience.

We welcome qualified students and provide educational, arts, athletic, financial assistance, and employment activities without discriminating based on race, ethnicity, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or physical ability.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is rooted in three guiding principles:

1.  Learning is enhanced when diverse viewpoints are present, analyzed, understood and respected;

2.  Leadership potential is enhanced when one is able to constructively interact with people from all
     walks of life; and,

3.  Life’s experience is enhanced by having positive contact with an ever-changing but increasingly
     interconnected world.

We believe students succeed and develop best when they are introduced to multiple perspectives. We want Cannon School to be a place where adults – teachers, parents, and administrators – model acceptance and understanding in a way that helps young people to grow into even more tolerant and productive individuals.

We strongly endorse a Cannon community that respects the similarities and uniqueness of its members. We strive to provide an unmistakable learning advantage – one that safely exposes Cannon students to perspectives that may be different or unfamiliar to their own.

We are committed to having Cannon students achieve their fullest potential as part of a lifetime of learning. We strive to have them learn from those around them. Although we come from a broader community consisting of many perspectives, we choose to build upon a foundation of respect for all.
 
Our steadfast belief that the virtues of diversity and inclusion should be embraced is at the heart of all we do
and motivates us to believe in the possibilities of tomorrow. Diversity and inclusion offer ways to Go Beyond
in our commitment to our students and those around us.
