Mission and Diversity

The Mission of LMS

The Lexington Montessori School community works to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self-assurance, and a love of learning. We respect the uniqueness of each student by helping each child to develop skills at periods of greatest readiness and sensitivity.

Our program provides a creative and adaptive environment that responds to the needs of the children. We seek to balance academic and social development to foster responsibility and cooperation within a supportive learning community.

Our students learn to view themselves as contributing members of a diverse global community. We respect and value differences, and look with an open mind at all members of the community, seeking to understand and value them for who they are. The staff, the parents and the children communicate clearly and openly and treat each other with honesty and mutual respect.

Diversity at LMS: Our Statement

At the Lexington Montessori School, we recognize that building a multicultural school requires an ongoing commitment of time, energy and resources in both our curriculum and our school practices.
Implicit within the Montessori philosophy is the concept of a multicultural school.  Through our curriculum, we work to acknowledge and explore differences among us and in the world.  We want children to learn to understand and value multiple perspectives, identify and reject stereotypes and prejudices, and work for equity and justice within the school. 
At an organizational level, we are committed to creating and maintaining a diverse student and staff population which shares differences of gender, race, religion, family structure, socioeconomic level, culture, age, sexual orientation, language and learning style.
Our goal at LMS is to create an environment where each person freely brings his or her whole self to school each day, comfortable that every individual will be honored and protected.  We hope our children will go on to their next educational experience feeling rooted in their individual identities, with a profound appreciation for both difference and interconnection.
