What is essential about working at our school?

The Ethical Culture Fieldston School has a long history of equity and inclusion deeply rooted in our mission and the educational philosophy of our founder, Felix Adler. We embrace diversity of ancestry, family, identity, culture, and beliefs and seek a student body and faculty that reflect the pluralism and socio-economic diversity of metropolitan New York.

In keeping with our progressive tradition, we are dedicated to increasing our students cultural literacy to help them understand multiple perspectives and see the world beyond the self.

On a daily basis, we are committed to making this vision of a democratic, pluralistic, and progressive school a reality.
