Diversity and Inclusion

The mission of Glenelg Country School outlines the principles that bind us together as a community. However, it does much more than acknowledge them—it is a call to action that challenges us to embrace the diversity of “background, culture, and thought” and presents us with a unique opportunity to accept the responsibilities that come with that call. Our commitment to these values both galvanizes and unifies our community as we strive to ensure a voice for all and to strengthen the “Dragon Ethos” of respect, integrity, and inclusion.

A few notes about diversity and inclusion at Glenelg Country School.



  • Ranked as the #7 most diverse private high school in the Baltimore area for 2023 by Niche.com.
