As a school rooted in equity practices 和 social justice, underst和ing how race affects people on a daily basis, 以及当代社会对种族问题的反应, is as important as underst和ing historical highs 和 lows. We believe all future leaders 和 active citizens need this basic social literacy. 

公园日 we acknowledge that society privileges certain groups in different ways. We believe that if white people can also be aware of these differences more often, we can all take one step closer to being a just society where everyone receives equal treatment. Students are given scaffolding 和 ways to meaningfully engage academically 和 socially with their peers, 老师, 和家庭讨论种族问题, 面对种族歧视, ensuring that friendship 和 trust grows naturally within our community. The home/school partnership is crucial to the success of these efforts.
