Equity & Inclusion at Synapse
Statement of Intent:
Synapse School is committed to developing an inclusive community and a safe learning environment for students, families, faculty and staff members regardless of race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, socio-economic status, family structure, faith, ancestry, national origin, medical condition, or genetic information. We honor, respect and celebrate all differences, both visible and invisible. We believe that all students benefit from learning to value, engage with, and understand diverse perspectives as a way of increasing empathy and creating positive change in the world.
Equity and Inclusion Committee
Synapse School is a member of People of Color in Independent Schools (POCIS) and partners with Peninsula Bridge, a Silicon Valley program that provides motivated, low-income students with academic and personal support during middle school years through college graduation.
