Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We value diversity at The Girls’ Middle School because every student’s educational experience is made better by acknowledging and actively seeking out diversity through all aspects of the school. Back in 1996, founder Kathleen Bennett wrote in her original prospectus, “GMS is committed to achieving a balance of staff and students from diverse backgrounds, as well as a range of income levels.” We take this commitment seriously, embracing the vital role we can play in furthering educational equity in our larger community. A diverse student body enriches learning experiences in every classroom throughout our school. We cherish the distinctive perspectives and life experiences each student brings. These perspectives open our collective eyes to the world beyond our walls and lay the foundation for each girl’s personal growth.

Every single girl deserves a GMS education.You can’t typecast a GMS girl, because a GMS girl is every girl at her best.
