We are committed to open and honest communication about issues of identity so that students feel valued in our school community and comfortable being themselves.
We are committed to an intentional curriculum that looks both inward to ourselves and outward to others, and celebrates the richness of diverse cultural and intellectual exchange.
We are committed to a community environment that is positive, nurturing, and emotionally-safe, embraces the integrity of individual identity, and allows for authentic sharing of personal histories, experiences, and cultures.
We are committed to employment practices and professional development of the school’s administration, faculty, and governing body to build skills and advance our vision of diversity in the school.
We are committed to an admissions process that offers an accessible educational program for diverse populations.
