Embracing Diversity

Embracing Diversity

BELIEVE Schools firmly believe that we have to understand our past in order to forge a path into the future. BELIEVE Schools was developed in 2018 with the belief that we can create a new way of educating students in our country. As an organization and an institution of learning, we are committed to having a deep understanding of diversity including race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, and sexual orientation. We have a deep responsibility to educate and acknowledge our stained past and ensure that all of our stakeholders are committed to anti-racist practices. Our community will be inclusive, diverse, and equitable. We will assess our practices and policies regularly to ensure that we fulfill our commitments. BELIEVE was born out of love, and it will continue to grow in love for all.
