A successful student in the 21st Century will need a set of skills—in addition to the experiential and curricular preparation they receive through FXW—to navigate an increasingly multicultural and international setting.  Our students will be expected to cultivate habits of mind and master cultural competencies to effectively communicate across differences with compassion, respect and understanding. The FXW graduate will enter a workforce where teamwork is an expectation and collaboration with individuals from different cultures is the norm.

Through our partnership as parents and educators, we strive to foster and nurture our students’ global perspective to promote these critical skills. At FXW, we aspire to transcend our good fortune of merely attending a diverse school by inviting our community to actively engage in conversations about inclusivity and belonging.Accompanying us in our efforts to ensure our children are ready to be responsible citizens in our culturally diverse world is nationally-recognized author, speaker and consultant, Dr. Derrick Gay. FXW welcomes Dr. Gay back to campus to provide deeper insight into the many ways we live out diversity in our School—and the community at-large. Dr. Gay first engaged the FXW community at our Mission Day in August 2016, has presented to faculty and staff, and will present to our parents, students, and Board of Trustees in May.Join us on Monday, May 15 for Dr. Gay’s Presentation: Is Your Child Ready for Success in the 21st Century?
