Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Geffen Academy, the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to the school’s overall mission, vision, and practice. We strive to be a transformative school that upholds a more just world and challenges systems of oppression that undermine humanity and our ecosystem.

As educators, students, and families, we believe that:

  • A transformative educational experience acknowledges and develops the diversity of identities and experiences that individuals and communities bring to institutions;
  • Individuals and communities are the agents of change in our institution; and
  • Educational institutions must be reflective, allow for critical examination, and be continuously reworked in order to best meet the needs of the communities and individuals they serve.
    • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
