Junior High East Celebrates No Place for Hate Redesignation

We are proud to announce to that Junior High East has recently become a designated No Place for Hate school. This honorable designation is a culmination of students and staff members collaborating to take a stance against intolerance, appreciate diversity, and create a community of respect.

No Place for Hate is an initiative of the Anti-Defamation League that enables schools and organizations to challenge anti-Semitism, racism and bigotry in all forms.

To become a designated No Place for Hate school, Junior High East formed a committee to direct anti-bias initiatives, signed an official No Place for Hate promise, and held at least three activities during the school year aimed at educating students about diversity.

Boyertown Area School District is proud to announce that all ten schools in the District have been designated as No Place for Hate schools for the 2015-2016 school year. This marks the District’s 11th designation, naming Boyertown Area School District the longest standing No Place for Hate District in Pennsylvania.
