Punahou School is committed to creating a diverse educational community rooted in equity and inclusion as fundamental human rights. We seek ways to create an environment in which the identities and cultural backgrounds of our families, students and employees are valued and respected by the entire Punahou community.
We believe that the diversity of our students, staff, faculty, curriculum and co-curriculum is essential to fulfilling our Mission and living our Values. Throughout the Punahou journey, diverse cultural identities, world views, aspirations, affiliations and beliefs strengthen the learning experience for all as we promote open dialogue around difference.
Punahou students and employees are expected to uphold the highest standards of fairness and inclusivity so that all members of our community may participate in and contribute to the life of the school, regardless of age, family structure, race/ethnicity, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation or any other aspect of their identity.
