Living Our Mission

At Fayerweather Street School, we help young people develop the knowledge, skills and awareness to flourish in a complex, diverse and increasingly interdependent world. We believe that truly knowing each child is the heart of a great education. We strive to engage each child’s intellect, imagination and awakening sense of social responsibility, to help our students become confident, resourceful and enthusiastic learners.

Diversity Commitment

Fayerweather is committed to developing a strong sense of community in which every member feels valued.

We work together to examine the roots and issues of racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism and other prejudices within and beyond our school. Within our community, we expect that individual beliefs and feelings will be shared and valued and conflicts will be acknowledged, explored and peacefully resolved.
