Lesley Ellis School


A Diverse and Welcoming Community

Everybody is part of something bigger at Lesley Ellis. Everyone belongs. We value each child as a unique individual and also as a member of a vibrant community. Everyone has something to contribute. Everyone makes a difference.

Our commitment to celebrating the broad spectrum of human variety has enriched our community with differences of all kinds. Not only do we welcome families from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds—who bring a diversity of identities, family structures, and belief systems—but we also intentionally explore diversity, equity, and justice as core tenets of our school. We put sensitive topics on the table, so children have a safe place to learn and practice:

  • How to resolve differences successfully
  • How to think about the meaning of community
  • How to support each other

Community is something we consciously create at Lesley Ellis. We work hard at it and nurture it. Our anti-bias curriculum sets both our agenda and tone, ensuring that our values are ever-present. We respect each other’s work, interests, and histories. This is a place where ideas are valued and exchanged freely, and where we listen thoughtfully. We take care of each other and the community to which we all belong.
