Fenway High is declaring itself a Welcoming and Safe School for All

The mission of Fenway is to create a socially committed and morally responsible community of learners that values its students as individuals.  In line with our mission, Fenway is declaring that we are a welcoming and safe school for all.  We are reviewing policies that commit to protecting students who are undocumented.  Fenway is doing this because we believe it is important to support all of our students, including undocumented and refugee students and families that are in our community, and to create a supportive environment for teaching and learning for everyone.  This decision and statement comes after communications with Fenway students, faculty, families and a unanimous vote supporting this statement by our Board of Trustees.  We reiterate that:

  • Undocumented students, as well as all other members of our community, are respected and supported and every effort will be made to create a safe zone for teaching and learning.

  • Fenway commits to our fundamental core value of pluralism and non-discrimination.  We believe in equal protection under the law regardless of citizenship or national origin.

  • Fenway will not volunteer any assistance in any effort to deport our students, faculty, families or staff simply because of their documentation status.

Fenway welcomes all of its students and every member of our community. We pledge to provide resources to our students and families who are undocumented who request them.  We believe that this reaffirmation is important to acknowledge our stance that we support each and every Fenway student and family.
