Equity & Diversity

Northshore is committed to creating a safe, caring, and mutually respectful environment within our school district community so that all students, families and staff feel welcomed, valued and supported. We recognize that the diversity represented across our communities and throughout our schools has steadily changed and that even greater racial, ethnic, cultural, religious, economic diversity is projected in the years to come.
