Fayerweather Street School
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. We are committed to building a diverse and welcoming community in which compassion, humor and respect are woven throughout the curriculum and spirit of the day.

Our Commitment to Diversity We are strongly committed to developing a sense of community in which every member feels valued. We work together to examine the roots and issues of racism, sexism, homophobia 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.
