In this devotional, Father Nate discusses what it means to be an Episcopal School. "And, following in the footsteps of Jesus, that’s what we seek to do as an Episcopal School: First, we welcome everyone from every walk of life."
Our Episcopal Identity
I am a soul open to searching. - ESD Manifesto
The Episcopal School of Dallas was founded on the belief that every child was made in the image of a loving God. We believe our Episcopal Identity has to be incarnate. It is visible in how we all live and interact with one another and what we carry forth into the world.
At ESD, we value the dignity of every human being as a child of God. We strive to live with honor, respect, and integrity for all as expressed in our Code of Conduct. We are committed to creating, maintaining, and nurturing a diverse, safe and inclusive environment as we prepare young women and men for lives of service, intellectual discovery, integrity, morality, and purpose.

Honesty means we should be truthful about the things we say and do, and about what others say and do around us. Honesty helps us realize who we really are, how our actions affect others, and how we can grow and change to become the best version of ourselves.
