Diversity and Inclusion Mission Statement: Groton School is committed to diversity and inclusivity with responsibility, mutual respect, and empathy. We strive to maintain a community in which every person feels welcomed, valued, and respected. We are dedicated to shared examination of our different perspectives, inherent privileges, disadvantages, and prejudices, especially in terms of race, religion, national origin, gender and sexuality, socioeconomic status, and political ideology. We believe this work is critical to preparing students to lead “lives of character, learning, leadership, and service."
