The school has notably embraced a culturally diverse population, and increased awareness of family struggles in a student’s life among its staff.

The Cornerstone Award was given to Cape Cod People Against the Trafficking of Humans, for their efforts in eliminating trafficking on the Cape and raising awareness of the problem through education and collaboration.

Reverend Brenda Haywood has been given the Tim McCarthy Human Rights Champion Award. Haywood, the community minister and pastor of the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Provincetown, has dedicated her life to teaching children about issues surrounding topics such as race, peace, and empowerment.
