The Alta Vista School is dedicated to nurturing an inclusive community that celebrates all aspects of our multifaceted identities. We believe that in order to sustain such a community, we must engage in intentional and ongoing processes of self- and institutional- reflection to make Alta Vista a safe environment for our students, faculty, and families. We strive for all members of our community to become agents for positive change in our evolving world.


The Diversity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee organizes educational workshops for parents and faculty and coordinates resources such as classroom and library materials to celebrate diversity and foster equity and inclusion in our community.

  • Quarterly parent roundtable discussions
