Is it possible to “preserve a happy attitude” among students? How can families, teachers, and community members unite to create a school culture where all students are pulled toward excellence? The Cushman School has embraced those goals for over 9 decades, and continues to adjust to a constantly shifting social landscape.
“The environment here is inclusive, but our daughter still gets questions about her two dads. The other day she came home and asked me if we are ‘fairies.’ We laughed, but that’s what another student had said to her.” – Dad, The Cushman School
“I had a student tell me he was transgender. All I knew to say was, ‘good for you,’ and we went about the lesson.” – Teacher, The Cushman School
Education is needed everywhere, even in the most welcoming environments. Thank you, Cushman, for inviting YES Institute to support your faculty, staff, and parents in fulfilling your vision for your students!
