Loyal Heights Anti-Racist Statement

The Loyal Heights staff agreed upon an official anti-racist statement that had been created and edited by multiple school and community-based entities including the Building Leadership Team (BLT), LHE Racial Equity Team (RET), the PTA Board, and the Parent Equity Group.

“At Loyal Heights, we believe being anti-racist is understanding that racism is everyone’s problem. We acknowledge there is a role that all people, in particular white people, have in dismantling racism through partnership. By actively becoming an anti-racist school we will ensure all students, including those furthest away from educational justice, thrive. Additionally, we will foster opportunities for students to learn and actively participate in anti-racist practices. As a result, we will create a safe, inclusive, and constructive learning environment and community for all.”


Learning is built on quality instruction and the active participation of learners.
We will cultivate self-motivated learners. Challenging instruction will encourage children to explore their world and develop multiple solutions for complex problems.

Children are complex human beings.
We will provide a variety of ways for children to express themselves. We will strive to support the development of the “whole child.” Cultivating citizenship, responsibility, and collaboration are vital to school functions.

Successful schools build strong, collaborative community-school partnerships.

We will nurture family and community involvement.

Children’s learning strengths vary.
We will offer rich, integrated learning experiences that incorporate a variety of modalities and practices. Instruction will address different skill levels.
Children learn best when basic human needs are fulfilled.
We know and love children. We will make sure that children’­s achievements are recognized and they feel safe, fed, successful, respected, and ready to learn.

Loyal Heights empowers students to succeed! 
Staff, parents, and community members collaborate around an energized school mission that supports achievement by every student. Teachers work together on instruction. Dedicated volunteers perform important tasks, and an active PTA works to support the school and parent goals.

Loyal Heights is a caring, student-centered, community-supported school.
