Diversity and Inclusion

In keeping with our philosophy, The Little School is committed to educating our students to be citizens in a diverse and inclusive global community.

To further our children’s understanding of the world in which we live, The Little School seeks to purposefully build an environment that reflects and honors its rich diversity. The school welcomes a wide range of people and respects their personal identities, including socioeconomics, race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity and family composition. Our community is committed to ongoing dialogue, education and reflection to develop understanding and inclusion of every member.

“We all have different parts that make us who we are. Our diversity makes us a better school.”
— Ana, TLS Alumna

DEI Mission

We will reflect on our own identities, be curious about the experiences and perspectives of others and seek to understand how our identities intersect. We strive to create an educational culture where struggle and discomfort are embraced as necessary for increased understanding, and a community whose members are humble, curious, kind and committed to social justice.

DEI Vision

The Little School creates innovative learning communities committed to equity, intentionality and continuous inquiry and growth.
