Our Mission

The mission of The School for Human Rights is to develop the academic and social capacities of all our students, regardless of identity or ability. A combined middle and high school, the School offers an integrated academic and social skills-based curriculum, challenging our students to become critically thinking, compassionate, and socially engaged young adults committed to equity, dignity and social consciousness. We are implementing a school-wide approach to human rights: teaching human rights through coursework and by building a community culture that upholds human rights principles.
