Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

at Holden High School

Holden High School, since its inception in 1969, has been an inclusive community that embraces diversity and values the ways this can enrich and transform the experiences of our students, families, and staff. We are committed to being an equitable and inclusive educational community, and we are actively working on becoming an anti-racist school. We acknowledge that achieving these ideals is an ongoing process.

Holden is a community that strives to promote social justice and challenge prejudice while embracing and celebrating differences. We are committed to continuing our work in teaching young people to love themselves, to respect others, to be kind and compassionate, and to build and participate in inclusive communities embracing these values. We are committed to bringing about positive change in our communities through the ongoing work of understanding and acknowledging institutional, societal and structural advantages, addressing implicit bias, and embracing diversity.
