We, the undersigned members of the Castilleja community, condemn the administration's recent conduct surrounding the dismissal of Bear Capron and pledge to withhold donations from the Annual Fund unless the administration takes concrete actions toward restoring a respectful, transparent relationship with all parts of the Castilleja community (including faculty, staff, students, parents, and alumnae).

    • This whole thing has been appalling all the way around, and will not support the school until it gets its priorities straight

    • The administration's conduct has not been in line with Castilleja's core values. A school is only as strong as the respect with which it treats its faculty, students, and the community that lends the institution its credibility and strength. This Castilleja is not the one I love, value, or support.

    • I am well and truly ashamed of my formerly beloved high school. Not a cent from me, now or ever, unless some sort of justice returns.

    • I cannot continue to support an institution, either emotionally or financially, that has behaved in this manner.

    • Bear was a vital part of my Castilleja experience; without him in the classroom, I don't know what I would be supporting at Castilleja.

    • This is a travesty. Both the action taken and the secrecy with which it was carried out. The caliber of the teachers at Castilleja are what made it such a stimulating and incredible environment - Mr. Capron was not only an example of this, he was a unshakable part of the community.

    • I am saddened and horrified by the disrespect with which Mr. Capron has been treated. Castilleja was only ever excellent because of its amazing teachers. To treat one of the great, legendary Castilleja teachers this way is shocking, and sends the worst possible message about the school. Furthermore, treating the Castilleja community with such disregard is offensive and naive. We will withhold our donations and continue to fight through every possible means to restore Castilleja to its core values.
