Diversity and Equity
Equity and appreciation of diversity are core values at Bullis.
“Bullis is a very diverse community, with a range of perspectives and ideas. Everyone’s perspective is heard and the community is very friendly and inviting to all.” Alex B., ’18
Bullis is a learning community where equity and appreciation of diversity are core values. Students and families, faculty and staff, and the Board of Trustees all reflect and respect this diversity. Diversity brings encounters that are active and challenging—that move us from mere tolerance to genuine acceptance and understanding of others. In and out of the classroom, students and adults are encouraged to see the world through different lenses, to become better learners, more culturally versatile, ready to participate as responsible citizens and to provide leadership in an increasingly multicultural world.
Diversity is central to the identity and character of Bullis School. It has many dimensions, including, but not limited to, the following (listed in alphabetical order):
- Diverse gifts and talents
- Learning style
- Physical challenges
- Race and ethnicity
- Sexual orientation
- Socioeconomic background
Among our highest aspirations and goals is to always develop, welcome, include and embrace the wide-ranging diversity of the Bullis School community.
“The Bullis community is diverse: through race, socio-economic status, place of residence, religion, etc. The community expects everyone to respect one another despite differences. Students are open-minded and accepting.” Langston S., 12th grade
