Equity and Inclusion

Normandale's Commitment to Equity and Inclusion

At Normandale, we understand that authenticity in Equity and Inclusion starts with being aware of who we are, where we come from, and our own biases and privileges.   

We are committed to the principle that all individuals are to be treated with equality and dignity without discrimination regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, economic, and/or marital status. We will work diligently to make sure all our dealings with each other are marked by decency, empathy and civility. 

Normandale resolutely condemns conduct and expressions of bigotry, hatred, prejudice or disrespect. Such behavior will be regarded as a violation of the standards of conduct required of any person associated with our school. 

As a center of teaching and learning, Normandale prides itself on being a community in which free and open discussion takes place. We expect and foster a culturally responsive exchange of differing values and ideas. 

We do this work through our bold vision to achieve racial equity in educational outcomes.
