The most unifying aspect of Hotchkiss is our School community, which is made up of students, faculty, and staff from vastly different backgrounds and cultures. We are bonded by experiences shared on campus and by ideals held in common and carried forward long after students leave Lakeville.
Strengthening our culture with respect to the experiences of students of color and those from other marginalized groups is pivotal to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment.
“What stands out to me, what I recognize to be different from some other schools, is that the work is not falling solely on the shoulders of one individual or small group, and the student voice has been strong throughout the process.”
