MultiCultural--Pinole Valley is proud to be amongst the most diverse schools in the entire Bay region. Our numbers show we have NO single majority ethnicity on campus. The largest group is Latino, but it is only a small plurality of our population, and even that population is pretty diverse, if you divide it into English Learners and native born. We think such statistics provide a great opportunity. The week ahead is our annual Multi Cultural celebration. We perform on Wednesday March 12 in the evening for our families and friends, then Thursday repeat the show twice; once for students in a 3A period, and then an encore for students in 3B. Friday we host our Multi Cultural Fair, which is a lunch time event featuring food sales, booths and more. But when we talk about our Multicultural school, we want to focus on the school part of things. What does it mean to be multicultural in the classroom? At its best it means a livelier and richer class conversation. Imagine responses to literature or social sciences through different lenses. Think of the value of students sharing their insights, each from a background that has something unique to offer. Diversity is an economic issue as well. Our school draws from different strata and that too provides us chances to learn more from each other. In our differences, we can build strengths. Thanks for being a part of our colorful and diverse scene.
