Our Name

The name “Oneness-Family School” represents the school’s highest aspiration – a world of harmony and unity. Our Vision and Mission reflect this.

Today, we strive for a world where each nation is celebrated for its unique contribution, in which each person is appreciated for who they are. It is a world in which the personal ambitions of each individual intersect synergistically with the common good of all. It is a world that echoes with the harmony of a symphony, each voice contributing to the majestic whole - oneness.

In the oneness world of the future, people will care for each other like a family. Societies will value all of their children and ensure that they have equal access to security, health, and education. Their education will be designed in a way to further the evolution of humanity itself, to create new possibilities of world harmony, and to celebrate life.

Oneness-Family School is a microcosm of what the world can look like and what it one day will become. Our Vision and Mission intersect in our name itself. In the world, we are a family of nations. In our school, we are a family of families. We are teaching students how to transcend limiting viewpoints and to see their individuality as part of the larger fabric of humanity – one world family.
