An Independent Day School for Grades 6-12
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our Commitment

Crystal’s commitment to equity and inclusion is led by groups like the Multicultural Leadership Team, a committee composed of both faculty and students who collaborate on curricular projects and community events. This commitment extends to families thanks to Parent Association Diversity and Inclusion Liaisons, translation services, and the Spanish-Speaking Family Network. The Human Development Program, Crystal FIRST, a program for aspiring first-generation college students, as well as our partnership with the Peninsula Bridge organization also demonstrate our core value of inclusion and commitment to community engagement. Most importantly, Crystal students themselves are leading the charge through initiatives like Women Driving Change, LGBTQ Affinity groups, 9th grade Diversity Day, and more.
