Crystal's Statement in Support of Black Lives and Commitment to Anti-Racism
Crystal does not tolerate racial injustice of any kind; Crystal affirms the diversity of people, ideas and experiences within our community; and Crystal knows that the best way to truly grow is to engage with one another in ways that might get messy.
Specifically, Crystal Springs Uplands School believes that Black Lives Matter. We view this moment as an important call to action for our institution and entire community.
We are unwavering in our commitment to growth as a community. We acknowledge that our history as a predominately white institution impacts the experiences of Black and other traditionally underrepresented People of Color in our Crystal and broader communities. We know it is imperative to listen deeply, reflect rigorously, and accept mistakes humbly. We know we have more work to do as a school to examine and interrupt all forms of oppression, including racism in our community and beyond.
Our Commitment & Values
Crystal Springs Uplands School is committed to being a diverse and inclusive community. Such a community values and celebrates individual differences and ensures that each individual's unique background and perspective can inform and enrich the educational experience for all. In seeking to create and sustain a community that reflects the diversity of the Bay Area, we provide a dynamic learning environment and strive to prepare students for the world in which they live. Our curriculum exposes students to myriad viewpoints and experiences that challenge and broaden their perspectives. CSUS believes that students, parents/guardians, faculty, staff, administration and trustees with inclusive perspectives and attitudes make our school a place of respect and compassion in which all members belong and thrive.
