We know that students learn best when they feel safe, supported, seen, and loved. So much of our students’ development happens in concert with others: peers, classmates, houseparents, teachers, staff, families, and friends, and these circles are interconnected. Our core intentions and their intersections enable us to understand and make visible each constituency of our community to build equitable spaces to learn, grow, and share together. As a community we make a commitment to each other to speak and act with humanity, integrity, justice, and compassion toward a shared goal of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We therefore acknowledge our responsibility to actively cultivate a community that honors diverse perspectives and experiences, not simply as enrichment but as an essential aspect of an inclusive education. We strive to be an anti-bias, anti-racist, and culturally responsive educational community, and commit, as a community, to the consistent and ongoing education and adaptation that this requires.
