At the French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS), we prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion. We commit to creating and nurturing a culture that seeks diverse representation, respects and celebrates individual and group differences, and strives to address inequities in our community and beyond.
DIVERSITY results from the unique blend of what makes us singular as student, parent and employee. It means respect for the values shaped in part by each individual’s background, race, color, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, nation of origin, language, socio-economic status, and any other differentiating factors.
EQUITY is the process to provide the broadest possible set of opportunities for each individual’s needs and ensure that students, parents, and employees thrive. Equity is the process; equality is the sought-after outcome.
INCLUSION is the intentional creation and nurturing of a school environment in which the engagement of each student, parent and employee is valued and sought.
