The Raleigh School, a private school near the PNC Arena, will hold a special meeting for parents of diverse and multi-cultural backgrounds next month.

The Raleigh School's Diversity Admission Morning is 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Oct. 28, at the school at 1141 Raleigh School Dr. The non-profit, non-religious independent school serves about 400 children from ages 2 years to fifth grade. 

The school strives to build a diverse and inclusive learning community so children can appreciate and value all people, admissions director Sharon Mitchell tells me. The Oct. 28 event is designed to encourage families from diverse backgrounds to learn more about the school and what it offers.

The morning includes a tour of the campus. Participants also will meet and hear from school administrators and current parents. They'll be able to see students and teachers in the classroom.

To RSVP for the morning, email Mitchell at smitchell@raleighschool.org.

    Teaching the little ones how to be racists, right from the get-go. They might as well put a big sign outside that says "Whites Need Not Apply". It's a private school and us whites have no protections from hate groups like this, so we'll just ignore it.

    I don't understand why so many folks get fired up about a need for diversity. What makes it so important? I'm not saying that it's a bad thing but I don't see why it should be such an issue. It isn't good or bad - it just is. Or isn't.

    With only 400 kids and an age span of 2 year to 10 year olds there is only so much diversity you can create. Why are people so fixated on creating diversity instead of just letting it happen? My child is fair skinned and is a minority at her elementary school in Cary but could care less. She has friends of all backgrounds.

    "The Raleigh School, a private school near the PNC Arena, will hold a special meeting for parents of diverse and multi-cultural backgrounds next month."

    We all know that means "no whites". Yet in the same story you say "the school "strives to build a diverse and inclusive learning community so children can appreciate and value all people." As long as they're "diverse" and "multi-cultural", that is...meaning NOT WHITE.
