Honoring diversity has always been part of the ethos of Green Hedges. An article from the Summer 2011 issue of
shares the importance:
One of the hallmarks of Green Hedges is its celebration of diversity. The metal sculpture called “Beyond Forever” that stands outside Kilmer Hall was installed in 1988 by metal artist Tomas Fernandez, a graduate of the school, and is said to represent the feeling that “the two figures are leaving behind their own prejudices, symbolized by the background metal, to meet on common ground.”
…A potent paradox of Green Hedges is that with its small size it reflects such a large world. The reasons for this have to do with the intentions and courage of its founders...and with the intentions and efforts of those today, who feel called to share in the ongoing creative endeavor that is the School.
Our work continues, but I could not be more excited about how much we have already accomplished together. We have an exceptional faculty, a thoughtful and hard-working Board of Trustees and Parent Association, and extraordinary generosity from engaged and committed parents. I want to thank you for being part of the Green Hedges School community. I am grateful to each of you for choosing Green Hedges and trusting us with your children.
