Adolescent students’ visit to the International Institute of St. Louis yesterday was aptly timed. Recently, current event discussions have focused on immigration, race, discrimination, and migration. This experience helped our students think more deeply about the world in which they live. Diversity is a theme we will continue to discuss with our students during the coming months.
Chesterfield Montessori School was one of the first Ambassador Schools for the St. Louis Mosaic Project, which focuses on integration and inclusion of international professionals into the St. Louis area. By partnering with the St. Louis Mosaic Project, Chesterfield Montessori has agreed to support this important initiative by reinforcing our welcoming and inclusive culture to our international families. By helping make the St. Louis area attractive to international professionals, the Project aims to have St. Louis be the fastest-growing US metropolitan area for foreign-born by the year 2020.
