Bosque School is an inclusive and nurturing environment. We welcome diverse thoughts and opinions, shared in a respectful manner. We seek to challenge our students, while encouraging their self-expression and individual identities. Our core values of scholarship, community and integrity guide our approach to a safe and welcoming environment.
What is DEI at Bosque School?
In our quest toward challenging education, Bosque’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) work moves beyond episodic assemblies and reactive trainings to provide students a curriculum that equips them with skills to gain a better understanding of themselves, to collaborate with others, and to thrive in today’s interconnected world. Students are exposed to developmentally appropriate touchpoints and curriculum from grades 6-12 that includes mini morning meeting lessons, ME/WE conferences, service learning groups, affinity groups, opportunities to travel to national conferences, and semester-long DEI workshop series, all designed to connect Bosque School’s Academic Mission, Core Values, and the Board of Trustees’ Diversity Statement with the lived experiences and developmental stages of our students. Our curriculum allows students to investigate DEI through the lens of power and privilege as social constructs with an emphasis on the intersectionality of race, ethnicity, nationality, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ability. The workshops help students develop a critical and reflective understanding of self while affirming and challenging the ways in which they find themselves situated in relationship to the community on campus, in the Albuquerque community, and as global citizens.
