Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity

Lowell has a longstanding commitment to being a community that ensures every family feels welcomed and included. Actively promoting mutual understanding of differences is an integral part of our curriculum and daily life, enhancing our school environment as well as the social and cognitive development of our students.

Our Shared Values

Since our founding in 1965, we have actively embraced and advanced diversity, inclusion, and equity. Honoring a broad range of human difference within our student body and staff not only reflects the world at large, but provides a vital asset for learning and personal growth throughout the Lowell community.

The values of diversity, inclusion, and equity are intentionally woven into Lowell's curriculum and school life for students. We help students develop cultural competency and provide opportunities to practice the skills needed to become critically minded, active citizens of the world.

These values also play a vital role in the decision making of the administrative team and the Lowell School Board of Trustees. This work includes admissions, curriculum development, hiring and retention of faculty and staff, professional development, fundraising, community engagement, and parent education.

We recognize that members of our community have different lived experiences. Therefore, we continually seek to create an equitable learning and working environment that differentiates levels of supports based on individual needs and to establish practices, policies, and procedures to ensure that everyone in the community can thrive.
