Families for Multicultural Community

Celebrating and enhancing Westtown's commitment to diversity

Families for Multicultural Community (FMC) comprises parents, teachers, administrators, and high school student leaders. Our goal is to provide a network of support for students, parents, and faculty of color and to offer events and initiatives designed to forge deeper unity within the Westtown community through multicultural dialogue, art, and education. This group is open to families from all backgrounds.
