Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Laying the Foundation for Change

Estableciendo las bases para cambios fundamentales

Jetant les fondations du changement

At International School of Brooklyn, we believe diversity, equity, and inclusion work is essential to creating an affirming and dynamic learning environment where all students can thrive socially and academically.


Our language immersion model and International Baccalaureate curriculum align organically with our investment in DEI work. We recognize and value multilingualism as the most direct connection to other cultures and see our students’ language learning as a natural way for them to develop empathy and open-mindedness. Learning French and Spanish – world languages spoken across the globe – allows our students access to diverse points of view and is key to their evolution as global citizens who embrace and appreciate the traditions and values of others. The IB’s inquiry-based approach to teaching encourages students to seek a greater understanding of historical truths in order to inform their roles as advocates and changemakers in the ongoing pursuit of justice and equality.


The work of justice is everyone’s responsibility, and ISB’s school culture, core values, and curricula center on this principle. Students, families, faculty, staff, and administrators engage and actively participate in strategizing about the remediation of society’s most challenging and intergenerational inequities. As the world continues to evolve, our approach to education around these issues evolves with it; we teach and learn together.

Making a Collective Impact: the EcoChallenge & aNY Bag Partnership

Students have successfully completed their first ever school-wide EcoChallenge organized by the Green Dragons, and the impact that they have made in two short weeks has been impressive!

“Restoring Faith in Humanity and Yourself in 5 Million Easy Steps” by Brenna DiCola, ISB Math Teacher

Since graduating from Swarthmore College, Brenna has worked with students in grades K-8 at private schools around Philadelphia, in Lawrence, KS, and in Madrid. She has taught everything from English and Social Studies to Science and Technology, but her passion is Math Education. This past summer, Brenna moved to New York and found a home at ISB, where she currently teaches 6th and 7th Grade Math and serves as Head of the Middle School Math Department. In 2015, Brenna took a five-month hiatus from the classroom to hike the Appalachian Trail, a 2,189.2-mile trek through fourteen states. During ISB's 2020 Pecha Kucha Evening in early March, Brenna shared about her journey and the many lessons she learned along the way in her presentation: “Restoring Faith in Humanity and Yourself in 5 Million Easy Steps."
