Our DEIJ Vision, Grounded in our Mission and Values
EB is a school where being who you are is encouraged and embraced. EB is a place of warmth, joy, kindness and belonging that welcomes all people and nurtures in its students inquisitiveness, creativity, empathy, and a rich and engaged outlook on the world.
As set forth in our Mission, EB is a force for change. We envision the school and its community to be an inclusive, diverse, and equitable environment that is welcoming, accessible, and reflective of both our core values and our widely diverse, international community members. Our space should be one that embraces the delights and challenges of our similarities and differences and works to provide equal and just opportunities to every community member.
EB prepares our graduates to positively impact their diverse communities and the local and international spaces in which we all belong. We believe a diverse educational environment is paramount to these efforts, and that our school must live and embody the key principles of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ). Those key principles are reflected in EB’s five core values: Unity, Reflection, Integrity, Zeal, and Endeavor. As a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and just community, EB seeks to not only acknowledge differences, but to mindfully support them by respectfully embracing all people and points of view. Further, we actively work to identify and dismantle structural inequalities in order to provide equal and just educational access and opportunity to all within the EB community. We aim to cultivate a sense of connectedness and belonging within every community member.
