Equity and Justice at LCS

As a community, Lake Country School is committed the following actions: 

-to be an anti-racist/anti-bias community 

-to implement a comprehensive anti-racist/anti-bias education at all levels

-to actively recruit staff and families of the global majority

-to remove barriers through financial support for Montessori training for people of the global majority  

-to listen, support, and work in partnership with organizations in our community and nationally that support equity and justice for people of the global majority



Our mission and values of respect, responsibility, diversity, inclusion, Montessori education, love of work, peaceful community, and stewardship demand us to follow through with these commitments - if we do not, then we can no longer exist.
