The student body at Del Mar Pines School* reflects the diversity of the community of Carmel Valley in San Diego CA. At our school, DIVERSITY is the practice of respecting and accepting one another's differences based on a wide variety of factors including ethnicity, age, family makeup, education, religion and more. INCLUSION is the action that precedes diversity, where individuals from various backgrounds are accepted and welcomed both culturally and socially.
BELONGING or fitting in is another meaningful aspect of inclusion where you and your student/s feel valued as members of our elementary school community.
