Diversity & Inclusion
It is our belief that a diverse community is grown through authentic dialogue that builds relationships while developing strong personal identity. We strive to understand and engage issues of difference, privilege, and oppression so that all voices in our community are aware and empowered. Viewpoint is dedicated to reflecting the diversity of our world, both visible and invisible, to ensure a safe environment. We do this, not just for ethical reasons, but because a diverse classroom creates the most powerful and effective learning environment.

Viewpoint fosters the belief that through exploration and greater understanding of experiences and perspectives outside of our own, we come to a greater understanding of ourselves. Identity investigation and achievement are associated with higher self-esteem, increased critical thinking, and advanced moral reasoning. Viewpoint is committed to reflecting all diversity, both visible and invisible, within our curriculum to ensure every voice is heard and to foster a welcoming and safe environment. We do this with the understanding that a diverse classroom and curriculum create the most effective, authentic, and powerful learning environment and best prepare our students for the global world.

Diversity Statement 

We believe that each and every human in the world deserves to be valued and respected for who they are. We are tending to a Viewpoint School community of belonging where everyone is welcome, knows they matter, and lifts each other with empathy, compassion, and love. 

We honor unity in diversity in all its forms, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion, ability, and points of view. On our journey of learning and continually improving as a community, we strive toward deepening much needed levels of trust, curiosity, and respect. 

Parent Partnership for Diversity and Inclusion (PPDI)

PPDI celebrates and recognizes the cultural diversity of Viewpoint School.

Sponsored by the Viewpoint School Service Association (VSSA), our committee full of passionate parent volunteers host activities designed to enhance cultural awareness, to foster diversity, and to promote compassion throughout our community.

PPDI is a parent group to connect and support people from all affinity groups to strengthen our shared experiences so we can deepen our understanding of one another.

We believe that this process helps weave together the fabrics of diverse communities into a stronger whole.
