ISW provides our students with opportunities to interact with leaders from various traditions, to learn about world religions, and to think carefully about their own relationships with one another, with their community, with nature, and with their spiritual foundations. We welcome students, families and educators from a variety of religious backgrounds. Our school strives to develop civility toward, respect for, and understanding of difference. ISW is not affiliated with any religious group.

Such happiness as life is capable of comes from the full participation of all our powers in the endeavor to wrest from each changing situation of experience its own full and unique meaning.
