Celebrating Diversity, Practicing Inclusion

DIVERSITY STATEMENT

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice are core values of the Lycée Français de San Francisco. Our commitment to diversity in all forms is rooted in our belief that engaging with unfamiliar ideas, perspectives, cultures, languages, and people creates the conditions for intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, empathy, and growth needed to drive positive change in the world.

By joining LFSF, members of our community commit to respecting, valuing, and celebrating the diversity and uniqueness of our students, teachers, staff and families, and to foster equitable, safe, and inclusive learning and working experiences for all.

Our community is made of many ethnicities, ancestries, colors, religions, gender identities, family structures, disabilities, sexual orientations, socioeconomic backgrounds, learning differences, and perspectives. We therefore commit to actively seeking and welcoming diversity in all forms, to building a community of care and solidarity standing against racism and hate, and to cultivating a culture of belonging to continue making our school competitive, vibrant and inclusive.

Hispanic Heritage Month SEPT 15 - OCT 15

Hispanic Heritage Month is observed annually from September 15 to October 15. It is a time to appreciate and celebrate the colorful cultures, rich histories, and diversity of the American Latino community. The idea for Hispanic Heritage Month began as a way to promote the history, culture, and contributions of Hispanic-Americans — specifically, those whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Communities mark the achievements of Hispanic and Latino Americans with festivals and educational activities.
