Bullis School's Statement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Bullis's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is embedded in our school's values: Caring, Challenging, and Community.

Students, faculty, and community members commit themselves to embracing each person with empathy and respect. Dedicated to creating safe learning environments, faculty facilitate conversations that aid students in understanding complex community, national, and global issues. We strive to celebrate the talents, voices, and authentic expression of every individual and ensure that our commitment to our school's values is reflected in our school’s policies, curricula, and programming.
