We, the Sunny Hills community, will challenge our students to maximize their ultimate potential through a continued commitment to program excellence. We will help them utilize the basic tools of learning to develop their talents, abilities and self-confidence. In our ever-changing world, students will need the skills to become lifelong learners, creative problem solvers and effective communicators. We will encourage them to enhance their lives through academic pursuits, effective human relationships, fine arts appreciation, and recreational activities.


Equitable Conduct Expectations

The Issaquah School District values equity, diversity and inclusion. The district is committed to building and sustaining a welcoming school community. Our district and community are made up of people of different backgrounds, needs and perspectives. Our learning community includes people of varying races, ethnic backgrounds, abilities/disabilities, religions, ages, languages, socioeconomic status, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender expressions or identities.

Student expectations include:

  • Respect each individual, even if that person’s identity is different from your own.
  • Seek to understand your impact on others while seeking to understand other’s intent.
  • Communicate respectfully with others in person, on social media and in any other form.
  • Use what you are learning to practice good judgment and make ethical and informed decisions.
  • Take responsibility for your words and actions.

We all have a responsibility to report behavior that interferes with having an equitable and inclusive learning environment that honors and respects people of all identities. If you become aware of any actions that violate the expectations above, we encourage you to speak up through one or more of the following ways:

  • Tell a teacher, staff member or other trusted adult immediately.
  • If you are comfortable and safe doing so, speak up in the moment to encourage more equitable and inclusive talk or action, and/or support those being hurt.

I acknowledge that I am on the Indigenous Land of Coast Salish people who have reserved treaty rights to this land, specifically the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe (sduk ∑albix ∑). I thank these caretakers of this land who have lived and continue to live here since time immemorial.
