Inclusivity and Diversity

Growing an Inclusive Community

We know that a diversity of thoughts, experiences and backgrounds is necessary for our students to learn deeply and engage meaningfully in the world.  We work to build a supportive, respectful, caring community of adults and children that reflects and affirms all aspects of identity.  At Keys, every voice matters.

We embed conversations about identity in curriculum and policy. We cultivate an environment where we seek and embrace the diverse perspectives and experiences of our global community; where each seeks to know and be known.

We commit to engage fully in the daily, courageous, complex, messy work of hearing and valuing each other.  We aspire to foster thinkers and leaders who invest in their ongoing personal development, who practice inclusivity, who challenge assumptions, and who strive to create a more just world.

Know and be known.  Listen and be heard.  Dive in…


"It is not our goal to teach our students to be ‘politically correct,’ use the right vocabulary, and never offend anybody. Our goal is to give our students the skills to have the hard conversations, to think critically about difficult issues, and to speak honestly." Sara Poplack, Lower School Curriculum Coordinator
