Celebrating Diversity, Practicing Inclusion

DIVERSITY STATEMENT

DIVERSITY STATEMENT

Our commitment to diversity in all forms is rooted in our belief that engaging with unfamiliar ideas, perspectives, cultures, languages, and people creates the conditions for intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, empathy, and growth needed to drive positive change in the world.

By joining LFSF, members of our international community commit to respecting, valuing, and celebrating the diversity and uniqueness of our students, teachers, staff and families, and to foster equitable, safe, and inclusive learning and working experiences for all.

Our bilingual community is made of many ethnicities, ancestries, colors, religions, gender identities, family structures, disabilities, sexual orientations, socioeconomic backgrounds, learning differences, and perspectives. We therefore commit to actively seeking and welcoming diversity in all forms, to building a community of care and solidarity standing against racism and hate, and to cultivating a culture of belonging to continue making our school competitive, vibrant and inclusive.
