EDIB at Menlo

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging

At Menlo School, equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging are at the core of our organizational identity. 

Creating a Diverse and Inclusive Community

Menlo strives to be a community where every person feels welcomed, seen, valued, heard, affirmed, and cared for.

Through our entire community’s commitment to our shared values of empathy, respect, reflection, restoration, and recognition, everyone will have the opportunity to be a full participant in the life of the School and leave a lasting legacy as their best and authentic self.

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

As an institution, we are steeped in researched-based best practices. Students and faculty regularly engage in 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.
