Do you like vanilla ice cream? In my opinion, vanilla is pretty good. But when you mix vanilla with other goodies like chocolate chunks, peanut butter and brownie, the experience of eating ice cream changes significantly. The variety of ingredients adds texture, flavor and character to an otherwise simple food. In a similar way, at Ben Lippen School, the variety of people and cultures we have are like these diverse ingredients - We have the opportunity to come together to learn from and celebrate who we are and cultures from which our students come.
