A school that caters to children as young as 4 years old says it welcomes all kids, especially “transgender, gender-creative, or gender non-conforming” ones.
“Our school has a social justice mission,” Charlie Spencer, the head of Center School, tells The Republican. “And we were increasingly concerned about the high rate of suicide among gender non-conforming kids.”
The school, which enrolls preschoolers through eighth graders, recently announced a scholarship for “gender-creative” children.
Donors to the scholarship fund were “inspired” after how the school accommodated an elementary student who was “transitioning.”
“She had the anatomy of a boy, but felt like a girl in her heart,” according to Spencer. “She wanted to be able live that out.”
