At Surabaya Intercultural School, we celebrate our diversity and aim to set norms of acceptance and open-mindedness so that everyone in our community feels heard, respected, and valued for who they are. All students, families, and staff feel that they belong regardless of identity, age, gender, socioeconomic status, family structure, talents, national origin, race, ethnicity, language, birthplace, ancestry, culture, religion, or abilities. We strive to treat others fairly and are proactive in our efforts to promote Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice policies and procedures. Our students are empowered to be anti-discrimination leaders who advocate for themselves and others to create inclusive communities.

Di Surabaya Intercultural School, kami bangga akan keberagaman dan kami bertekad untuk mengembangkan nilai-nilai seperti saling menerima dan keterbukaan pikiran sehingga setiap anggota komunitas kami merasa didengarkan, dihormati, dan dihargai dengan apa adanya. Kami harapkan semua siswa, keluarga, dan staf merasa bahwa mereka adalah bagian penting dari SIS tanpa memandang identitas, usia, jenis kelamin, status sosial ekonomi, struktur keluarga, bakat, kewarganegaraan, ras, etnis, bahasa, tempat lahir, keturunan, budaya, agama, atau kemampuan fisik. Kami berusaha untuk memperlakukan setiap orang dengan adil dan proaktif dalam upaya kami untuk mempromosikan kebijakan dan prosedur yang menjunjung Keanekaragaman, Kesetaraan, Inklusi, dan Keadilan. Siswa SIS diberdayakan untuk menjadi seorang pemimpin dalam usaha melawan diskriminasi dan dapat membela diri sendiri maupun orang lain untuk menciptakan komunitas yang inklusif.
