Students come first; our schools are governed by a student-centered philosophy.
Our schools exist to ensure that there is a diversity of learning environments and educational opportunities to meet the unique needs of each student.
We are welcoming to all students and staff regardless of race, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, culture, nationality, sexual orientation, social and economic status, physical and learning differences, religion, or other characteristics that contribute to each individual’s full identity.
We embrace and promote diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within our schools, with practices, pedagogies, and curricula that are culturally responsive, anti-racist, and affirming of individual identities.
We uphold and fully support, without qualification, anti-discrimination laws and regulations.
Our schools are committed to self-evaluation and continuous improvement.
The sustainability of our schools and the quality of educational opportunities they provide are best governed by appropriately constituted and independent governing boards.
