Lower School Student Groups

The Lower School (LS) emphasizes the necessity of ‘windows and mirrors’ (Rudine Sims) in the curriculum, to allow students to both see others’ experiences, and their own experiences reflected. The LS offers opportunities for identity exploration and discovery through classroom projects and through affinity groups.

  • The Student DEIG Steering Committee gathers students from 4th to 6th grade who are interested in informing policies related to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Global Education
  • Racial Justice Community Time is an opportunity for students to gather by racial affinity, as well as grade level. During this adult-facilitated time, students explore identity and discuss how to be allies and advocates for anti-racism.
  • Banana Splits meets once a week for students whose families have gone through, or are going through, separation and/or divorce. 
  • Rainbow Space for students with an LGBTQ+ family member, meets six times a year
  • Rainbow Community Time is intentional time for students to learn about the LGBTQ+ community, once a month.
  • One World Club for 6th graders who want to engage in service projects on a local and global level.
