Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Hillbrook

The twenty-first century is defined by a growing global society that challenges intolerance and values differences as a way to enrich and deepen our world. At Hillbrook, cultural competency is the willingness to see oneself situated in a complex and diverse world, to seek understanding and appreciation of difference, to develop empathy, and to challenge biases and discrimination.

We believe that a sense of identity and of community belonging are central to each student’s developmental and academic needs.

With our responsive approach, we strive to create an inclusive environment in which each student feels a full sense of membership and is seen and valued.
We believe that the best learning happens through doing. The real world is a cross-disciplinary place–and so are our classrooms.

Our curriculum is designed to provide authentic activities and explorations which overlap and connect in unexpected ways.
We believe in igniting the changemaker in every student and nurturing the skills and mindsets to turn ideas into impact.

Our curriculum encourages students to know, respect, and value themselves and others as they seek to understand and appreciate differences, to develop empathy, and to challenge racism, biases, and discrimination.
