Celebrating Our Uniqueness, Uniting Our Community

At MKA we believe the work of Diversity and Inclusion should be seen in all facets of school life, from curriculum and pedagogy, to athletics and the arts. Guided by our Diversity and Inclusion team, our faculty and staff work to affirm the identity of every student and family. Our goal is to develop a diverse and cosmopolitan community where everyone feels at home and where students become prepared to engage with our dynamic 21st-century world.

Diversity & Inclusion Statement of Purpose

Connected to the fundamental principles found in MKA’s mission – Knowledge, Vision, and Integrity – this Diversity and Inclusion Statement of Purpose defines our community’s aspirational beliefs and actions:

We believe that the diversity of experiences presented through a rigorous multicultural curriculum develops our global cultural competency. To cultivate a love of learning, we encourage ourselves to explore and appreciate differences and similarities, to challenge stereotypes, and to acknowledge the range of perspectives within and outside of our community.

We strive for equity and social justice as the foundation for our engagement with an increasingly complex world. To promote full and active citizenship and leadership, we engage with the world through the strength of our ethical convictions and recognize our deep interdependence with others.

We uphold that an inclusive school environment fosters a culture of mutual respect, moral responsibility, and academic excellence. To recognize complexity and value empathy, we welcome, embrace, support, and encourage our entire community: its races, cultures, genders, and sexualities, its experiences and economics, its aspirations, abilities, and affiliations.
