Bessie Students

In Staunton City Schools, we recognize that our commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity are not only part of our values, but critical to every student’s success.

Each of our schools must be a welcoming and accepting place where people of all backgrounds and persuasions can learn and teach in an environment where their authentic voices and lived experiences are heard and valued.

We are working daily to make our schools more diverse, inclusive and equitable. Staunton City Schools is striving for a faculty and staff that reflects the makeup of the student body, an inclusive curriculum, teaching strategies free of bias and prejudice, and reducing the achievement and opportunity gaps for every student.
