Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
At SCH, we curate brave spaces. We stimulate meaningful discussions, and encourage students to show up and engage. Our Diversity Leadership Team—consisting of faculty members from each division—works hard to ensure that every member of the SCH community feels seen and valued.
Diversity is a condition of excellence. Embracing a diverse, inclusive community is fundamental to providing the most rigorous, globally competitive education. At SCH, we aim to engage, understand, and celebrate the broad range of human experiences and perspectives. Through our curriculum, professional development, community-centered events, and daily interactions, we are committed to cultivating empathy and inclusion, and to nurturing the authentic expression of every individual.

OUR FOUR PILLARS OF ACTION
Creating a platform for discourse with current parents within the community via three scheduled and themed parent forums.
Forming a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee comprised of board members, alumni, faculty, and parents to consider and recommend practices and policy across all aspects of SCH; the committee will continue to meet monthly.
Hiring a workforce at SCH that better represents the diversity of the student body.
Training our faculty and staff in DEI, rethinking curriculum, and analyzing the lens through which we teach.
