Our Commitment

Windward School’s commitment to diversity is an integral part of its educational fabric, inextricably linked to the mission of the School. Windward School is determined to create a welcoming community that embraces diversity and encourages students to develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the diverse world they will inherit. Windward School is located in Los Angeles, a sophisticated metropolitan area with a rich, diverse history. Therefore, Windward School students, parents, and employees must appreciate the contributions of peoples of varying ethnic, economic, religious, and racial backgrounds, as well as people of varying physical ability and sexual orientation. Windward School expects all members of the community to be committed to an inclusive school community that values diversity and respects differences. By joyfully accepting one’s participation in a diverse world, Windward students can more easily adjust to working, living, and learning with people in other parts of our state, nation, and world. Windward School seeks diversity not as an end in and of itself, but as a means to producing future leaders of our society. Students immersed in a diverse family of learners, who go on to become the community leaders of tomorrow, will surely help to reduce the gap between the economically advantaged and disadvantaged. They will also help to promote equal access to education and work opportunities for all peoples and help to establish mutually beneficial ties with peoples of other countries.

At all times, Windward School strives to
  • Appreciate and celebrate the origin and individuality of each member of the school community.
  • Respect the innate dignity of each person, which is reflected in the school’s curriculum and co-curriculum.
  • Instill in its students a clear sense of self and a clear understanding of their present and future responsibilities as educated members of our global community.
  • Imbue students with the notion that they learn, work, live, and play in a world populated by individuals and groups of many races, ethnicities, religions, and resources, as well as varied learning styles, physical abilities, and sexual orientations.
  • Offer an inclusive, multicultural curriculum that nurtures independence and individual growth and helps prepare each student to continue in higher education.
  • Encourage every member of the community to actively participate in respectful and inclusive social interaction.

    We hope that as a result of Windward’s commitment to diversity, our graduates regard learning as a lifetime process and strive to enhance their intellectual, moral, and ethical reasoning while fostering respect for themselves and others.
