Please join us for a community meeting about the top-line results of the 2018 Assessment of Inclusivity and Multiculturalism (AIM) survey. The AIM survey is designed and administered by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) to better understand the experiences of our Park community — parents, faculty, staff, recent alumni, and students. Given Park’s long-standing and ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, the online survey helps us evaluate periodically where we are as a community in this area. The results from the 2018 AIM survey will help us assess and fine-tune our strategic understanding of DEI at Park and to evaluate Park’s progress in meeting our goals regarding DEI. Though we have only begun to dig into the data, we wanted to share some of the headlines before the school year ends. We hope you can join us!

We, the heads of independent schools, comprising 178 schools in the New England region, stand in solidarity with our students and with the families of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
