Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) at Schoolhouse

Our Commitments Around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion



  • Acknowledge that the school rests on the unceded ancestral lands of the Ramaytush Ohlone people.

  • Maintain the founding principle to keep tuition as low as possible thereby making a high quality progressive education as accessible as possible. 

  • Enrich our community by welcoming a diversity of races, ethnicities, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, abilities, and national origins.

  • Ensure that social emotional learning (SEL) is given equal weight to academic learning.

  • Infuse DEIB throughout all aspects of the program and community life.

    • Provide real-life, project-based learning, and student leadership opportunities that teach students how to stand up for what is right in order to make the world a better place for all.

    • Teach students to examine biases, within themselves and in the world around them, so they may actively push against them. 

    • Instill in students the notion that they have the responsibility to use their privileges to help others.

    • Educate students about historical systems that disadvantage some members of society over others, empowering them to reshape their world.

    • Support students and community members of all genders via specific policies and commitments.
