The Office of Human Rights Education focuses on issues of human rights and
reflects Newton North’s commitment to issues of diversity. It serves
as a resource for issues regarding gender, race, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual,
and Transgender (GLBT) identity. It works with the On Campus office to
present assemblies related to human rights and diversity to the school.
Additionally, it works with the school’s Human Rights Board, a group
consisting of students, teachers, and parents from different cultural backgrounds
and life experiences. The office serves as a resource to the school’s
faculty, students and cultural clubs (e.g. Black Leadership Advisory Council,
Asian Culture Club, Gay Straight Alliance, International Club, Mentors
in Violence Prevention , to name a few.) It also works with the Leadership
in a Diverse Society class to bring our school’s commitment to respect
for human differences to life.
