Rangeview is known for its diverse student body, consisting of different heritages and knowing about 43 languages. The students may have their cultural differences, but it’s important to respect and learn about other cultures. As a result, these interviews of many of the students and staff members here help explore how they’ve been able to speak their language and their perspective on diversity. 

Having cultural diversity is a prominent yet unique aspect of the school because it allows people to trust, respect, and understand the different perspectives within the school and dismiss negative stereotypes. Most importantly, it gives people the chance to contribute what they’ve learned into society because it empowers them to express their cultural values and who they are without being discriminated against.
