We are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Currently we are working in every area of our school to ensure justice and equity for all. We are actively engaged in discussion and action and have developed a Racial Equity Committee. The committee along with the Administration will explore and determine how to best prepare our students and staff to thrive in a diverse, ever- changing and complex world.
Our commitment to DEI is in line with our mission that “Every student deserves the opportunity for an excellent education” in a warm nurturing and individualized environment.
At Cambridge School we believe that when people feel respected and included they can be more creative, innovative, and successful. While we have more work to do to advance diversity and inclusion, we have a sense of urgency around this and are committed to further cultivate an environment that allows all to express their authentic selves across all lines of identity and difference.
We have established a Racial Literacy Group comprised of teachers and administrators and a BARWE group (building anti-racist white educators) which meets monthly for readings and discussion.
Additionally, we have engaged the services of a consultant to assist us in our journey. An education and equity thought leader, Dr. Daryl Howard has the insightful mind of a professor, sensibilities of a counselor, and the purpose and passion of a servant and activist.
