Part of our most recent strategic goals is "inclusivity and wellness." In this, we seek to "Develop individuals of kindness and character who value physical and mental well-being and who respect and advocate for the inclusion of those with diverse backgrounds and experiences."
“This is about more than race. It’s about understanding all the many differences in our beliefs, backgrounds, and perspectives that we bring into the classroom and the school community.”
-Heather Cooper, Dean of Culture & Community, English teacher
“Working in age-appropriate ways, we aim to equip Upland students with the curiosity and courage to promote justice and fairness in our society.”
