Moses Brown was one of the leading abolitionists of colonial America, and in establishing the school that now bears his name, he insisted that it be open to students of all affiliations.
Moses Brown teaches children to celebrate the differences between people. This stems from the Quaker belief that every person has a divine Inner Light, and thus is equally deserving of love and respect.
In the ‘All About Me’ unit, children are invited to celebrate everything that makes them special–their eyes, their hair, their skin, their family and culture. This is a starting point for discussions about difference, and how we are made stronger as a group by not being all the same.
These lessons and activities are woven throughout the year, building the values and skills that our students will need to succeed in an increasingly global and interconnected world, and to create an educational environment that is just and affirming for every child.Inquire
