Diversity & Inclusion
This was by far the most diverse community I saw when I was considering schools for my child. Socioeconomic, racial, religious diversity - it's not just a goal here, it's a reality.

Reflecting our location in Oakland, we have a diverse student body, with over half of our students identifying as people of color.
We believe a school community rich in diversity provides the greatest opportunity for students to learn life's lessons. We are committed to respecting, nurturing, and promoting diversity and its importance in the education and development of our students and the well-being of our community.
We seek to develop multicultural leadership among the professional community and students. We are proud of our inclusive educational program and pedagogy that promotes respect for others, appreciation of individual, cultural and socioeconomic differences; and social responsibility, equity, and justice.
To support our families, the School sponsors a variety of affinity groups for parents:
- African American Family Network
- Asian Parents Network
- Latino Families Network
- Gender and Sexuality Diversity Network
- Learning Differences Network
Middle and lower school students participate in multicultural clubs. Upper school students run a variety of clubs based on backgrounds, orientations, and interests, including:
- Asia Club
- Black Student Union
- Gender Sexuality Diversity
- Indian Culture Club
- Latinos Unidos
