Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Statement
INT'L strives to empower our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and parents to understand and value differences and celebrate diversity. Through an environment of respect, the INT'L community is committed to inclusion, acceptance, and belonging, so all may live in a better and peaceful world.
INT'L* proudly celebrates diversity in all of its forms and we believe that this makes us a stronger, better school. Our faculty and staff members strive to live what we teach, and hope to reflect the International Baccalaureate* Learner Profile attributes to our students through our actions and also through our own personal stories, such as these from Philippe Dietz, Head of School, and from Sofia Mejia, Cohn Campus Enrichment Supervisor.
Stories like these are tools to build connection, spark discussions, and foster respect and open-mindedness amongst everyone in our community. We hope this gives you insight into the people behind an INT'L education, and the very diversity that is an integral part of who we are as a school.
