Equity & Inclusion

Our Equity & Inclusion Statement

Sunny Hollow Montessori acknowledges that racism and privilege exist in our own lives, our school, and our society. We are committed to becoming aware of and dismantling these systems. This work is a long journey and we have just begun.

Montessori education was founded on the ideals of equity, peace and justice. Sunny Hollow’s mission, vision and values reflect these ideals. As a school, we seek to provide a learning community that supports all students to reach their full potential as they embody equity, peace, and justice–locally, nationally, and globally.

As a school community, we commit to:

  • Integrate anti-bias, anti-racist education at all levels of our school.
  • Become aware of how implicit bias is pervasive in our own lives, our school, and our society.
  • Respect the contributions and protect the rights of all people no matter their identities (race, gender, ethnicity, culture, religion, ability, and sexual orientation).
  • Work to notice, appreciate, and honor differences in our children, families, and staff.
  • Apply a lens of equity and inclusion to strengthen all programs, policies, and practices.

“​An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it involves…the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live​.”

– Maria Montessori
