Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Our school should be a reflection of the neighborhood we serve, the city we live in, and the world we wish to create.

We know that our community thrives when we create shared experiences among students, families, and faculty of varying perspectives, approaches, and opinions.

Ours is a school that will forever respect and honor those differences, as we seek to build understanding and empathy in all who cross our threshold.

Anti-Bias Building Blocks are taught Pre-K through Grade 8. The five areas of anti-bias work identified in Building Blocks are:

  • Creating a safe and comfortable classroom environment.
  • Understanding my strengths, skills, and identity.
  • Understanding and appreciating differences.
  • Understanding bias and discrimination.
  • Confronting/challenging bias and bullying.
