Diversity & Inclusion

Lawrence is a safe and welcoming space for all students, regardless of their background, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or other aspect of diversity.

Our guiding principles have set forth aspirations for the entire school community: Respect and acceptance, for self and others, form the foundation of our school. We aspire for all members of our community to value and celebrate the many aspects of individual identity and human diversity. 

Our Director Campus Life, Diversity, and Inclusion, advances diversity, inclusion, and racial equity at Lawrence School through:

  • Direct support and student programming (such as the Dear Martin project, diversity-related book reads, Unity Day, workshops, and more)
  • Community engagement efforts
  • Policy and curriculum enhancements
  • Professional training for staff and faculty on equity and inclusion, diverse learners, educational equity, LGBTQ issues, gender diversity, and more
  • Departmental collaborations to deepen equity in practice

The Diversity & Inclusion Task Force is made up of faculty and staff from both campuses who work collaboratively to identify challenges and develop overall goals and objectives as it relates to diversity, equity, justice, and inclusion. The group is charged with conducting an on-going internal audit of programming, services, curriculum, and professional development to ensure alignment with the school’s guiding principles. 

Our Annual Diversity Day aims to introduce students to diverse cultures and backgrounds, through exposure to foods and traditions they might not have otherwise experienced. 

Global Youth Leadership Institute guides students in their understanding of other cultures and ways of life through domestic and international immersive travel. Participants visit the Llama Foundation in New Mexico, the jungles of Costa Rica, a Tall Ship sailing experience in Connecticut, and more.

The Black Student Union is a student-led affinity group that empowers high school students from diverse backgrounds with leadership, cultural awareness, teamwork, and advocacy skills. The Union provides a forum for students to collaborate with faculty on a sustainable movement for social justice in our community through compassionate leadership.

Lawrence School welcomes students, staff, and trustees of all ages, races, colors, religions, sexes, genders, sexual orientations, disabilities, handicaps, and national/ethnic origins to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available at the school. Lawrence School does not discriminate in administration of its education or admission policies, hiring practices, tuition assistance, or other school-related initiatives.
