Diversity Statement

Highlands School celebrates diversity, inclusion, and belonging. We thoughtfully embrace all individuals as essential to the mosaic of our community. We are stronger together.

We are committed to…

  • Fostering a culture of inclusion where children know that they belong
  • Ensuring a just community for the well-being of our students
  • Building a thriving community based on kindness, empathy, and relationships
  • Celebrating all children with their diverse backgrounds, talents, perspectives, and gifts
  • Embracing an openness towards ideas that differ from our own
  • Actively cultivating a diverse community within our board, faculty, staff, and student population
  • Promoting an educational environment and curriculum that promotes understanding of multiculturalism

Together, we must show our children that they all belong, that they all matter, that they are all loved. It is up to us, as they grow and mature into citizens of the world, that they do not back down from their social responsibility, and that they strive to create a society where all peoples belong, all peoples matter, and all peoples deserve to be loved.
