Student Body

Ross Woodward families hail from countries around the globe. Cultural exchange is an authentic and regular part of our students’ experience. We learn from one another and we also learn to consider multiple points of view about seemingly simple things, such as eating lunch, to the very large issues, such as governments and politics. We value and celebrate our diversity.

It is reflected in our school environment, our programming and events (e.g.  Native American Pow-Wow,  Country Celebration Nights, Hispanic Heritage and Black History Assemblies) , and in our curriculum. True to our mission of learning about yesterday to build a new tomorrow, we honor an array of world cultures by exploring them through a historical lens and then celebrating them today.
