Dear McDonald International Students and Families,
In the aftermath of our recent election, many schools are taking a moment to reiterate the values that are foundational to their mission, and so I wanted to do the same on behalf of McDonald International.
First and foremost, we are committed to building a community where all students are safe, respected, and engaged. Second, our community respects every single individual and we do not tolerate bullying, intimidation, or any other actions that perpetuate bigotry, stereotypes, or racism. Third, the diversity of our community and the many cultures, languages, and religions that make up our school continues to be our greatest strength. You all matter to us and we will always support you. Lastly, we value open and respectful conversations about the lessons of living in a democracy. We will help students move forward in understanding our democracy and how our nation works and endures.
