Celebrating Diversity, Practicing Inclusion



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 international 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 bilingual 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.


The condition of being different or having differences.                                                                   


Fair treatment for all, while striving to identify and eliminate inequities and barriers.


Everyone is included, visible, heard and considered.                                                                   


Equal access to wealth, opportunities and privileges within a society.  


The Land We Are On

We acknowledge that this space that we now occupy, is now part of our own history. We have been passed on this land and with that comes a responsibility to continue to care for it so that one day, we can also pass it on to future generations.

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.
