Kingsbury is Committed to Equal Opportunity and Diversity


The Kingsbury Center is committed to providing equal learning opportunities for all individuals without regard to race, sex, pregnancy, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity of expression, marital or veteran status, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local laws ("protected status") or an individual's or a youth's association with any person(s) with one or more of the actual or perceived forgoing characteristics, provided that, as a non-public school, Kingsbury Center may define our own mission, as well as admit and keep only those students well-matched for our mission, consistent with applicable law.  This policy governs all conduct at Kingsbury Center and at all Kingsbury Center functions.

The Kingsbury Center (KDS), a division of The Kingsbury Center, is a community of families, faculty, and staff from backgrounds reflecting the diversity of the Washington metropolitan area. Our goal is to educate the whole child in order to prepare each to become a global citizen.  We believe that our students are enriched by our community that values diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives. A diverse student body and broad-based academic excellence go hand in hand. Our students, who learn differently, are free to share a range of ideas and experiences that enrich their academic, social and moral learning. Contributions from every member of the KDS community without regard to any protected characteristic or socio-economic status are embraced in every classroom and are critical to the student's learning experience.
