The concluding sentence of McDonogh School's mission statement reads, "Embracing diversity of background, culture, and thought, the school builds upon its founder's original mission to provide life-altering opportunities and to develop in students the will 'to do the greatest possible amount of good.'" In accordance with our LifeReady vision and mission, McDonogh promises to educate its students to succeed and lead as globally—and culturally—competent individuals, thus students will emerge as people of character who are exceptional communicators and who honor diversity in all its forms.
We are dedicated to providing a learning environment that is based on mutual respect, understanding, and kindness. In so doing, we reflect our commitment to diversity to the world at large.
For me, the experience has changed the way I look at the world and has inspired me to work towards change and to make our community a safe and accepting place for all who are a part of it.
