We find strength in our similarities and richness in our differences. This is more than rhetoric. This is a guiding philosophy that helps direct everything we do at Burroughs. We're dedicated to providing an open, supportive, challenging and stimulating environment for everyone in the Burroughs community.

"John Burroughs School's strategic plan for diversity and inclusivity through multicultural and global education enhances its position as a national leader among independent schools. This plan shows the kind of vision and commitment from the board, head of school, diversity practitioner, and entire school community that other independent schools must emulate."
