Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Statement

The following statement was adopted by the Board of Trustees on February 1, 2018.


At Bay, diversity, equity, and inclusion are mission-critical principles that are foundational to academic achievement, healthy individual development, and principled civic engagement.

We embrace the truth that the diversity of our lived experiences, varied ideas and perspectives, and intersecting identities enrich us as individuals and as a community. 

We commit to practices that question and dismantle obstacles to achieving educational potential, and that address cultural and institutional biases and discrimination. We strive to support the unique experiences of students, families, and staffulty. 

We work, as a community, to ensure all of our members enjoy mutual respect, are valued for who they are, and share a sense of belonging. 

Commitment to Practice 

We enact these principles in our practices. Our students will have the skills, knowledge, and abilities to examine unquestioned assumptions about the world and self, to listen and engage with respect and empathy, and to make a meaningful impact in their communities and the world. We acknowledge that our practices are dynamic and that the work of building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community is—and always should be—an ongoing process.
