Diversity Mission Statement
 

The Kirby School embraces both the concept and the embodiment of diversity within its educational community. Beyond the ethical imperative to create opportunity for a full range of families in the greater Santa Cruz area, the School believes that diversity fundamentally enhances the quality of education for all students.

A DIVERSE COMMUNITY IS NOT A DESTINATION. IT IS A CONSCIOUS, EVER-DEEPENING PROCESS OF:
  • Infusing diverse voices and perspectives within the curriculum
  • Ensuring that students’ voices are respected and respectful 
  • Fostering curiosity about and respect for others within our community
  • Creating a safe space where differences are accepted, explored and understood
  • Challenging preconceptions and prejudices 
  • Allocating resources to admit and retain students who will enrich the diversity of the student community
  • Allocating resources to recruit and retain teachers, administrators, and staff who will enrich the diversity of the community
