Talking About Race

At Lowell, we are dedicated to upholding social justice and practicing equity and inclusion. Including and valuing diverse voices and perspectives in both our reflective thinking as well as our curriculum are at the core of this community.
Lowell’s Mission and Philosophy prepares us to stand up and walk together especially when we are hurt and challenged by the pain our society continues to experience. Our responsibility as a school that strives to create an intentionally inclusive community in which every individual belongs demands that the Lowell School community engage in self-reflection and hold ourselves accountable to a new standard of action. This work is never finished. We encourage people to contact our DEI team at to share their stories and ideas.


As we process the range of emotions, it can be hard to know what step to take next. Know that the Lowell community is here for you and with you even as you feel being lost, overwhelmed, and unsure as to how to take action.

Please use these resources to help process emotions your family may be experiencing and guide conversations with your children.
