Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI)

Transforming Learning. Transforming Culture. Transforming Lives.


At Menlo School, equity, diversity, and inclusion are at the core of our organizational identity. Through our daily efforts, the School demonstrates a shared commitment to the development of all stakeholders by supporting a campus ethos where equity, diversity, and inclusion reflect the major cornerstones of our community.

 As an institution, we are steeped in researched-based best practices. Students and faculty regularly engage material that is enhanced by the multiplicity of voices, viewpoints, and lived experiences within our School and global contexts. Through our purposeful efforts, we fundamentally believe that we can become better people when we recognize, appreciate, and authentically embrace experiences other than our own.
