School Vision

Lawrence School Vision

Amos A. Lawrence School is a safe, just and caring learning community of students, staff and families.

We are a vibrant learning community with high expectations for academic excellence.

At Lawrence School, students learn to respect themselves and others and to value and honor the diversity of cultures, backgrounds, and learning differences. They develop the habits of mind, knowledge, and skills needed for high school and beyond, as they discover and cultivate a love of learning and a voice for self-expression. Students develop their capacity to work independently and cooperatively. They gain an understanding of their individual and collective responsibility to be contributing members to the Lawrence, Brookline, and larger global communities.

Lawrence School promotes a collaborative environment for faculty and staff that values and supports shared responsibility for all students. We provide all students with the differentiation, support and challenge necessary to make progress and achieve success. We are a professional learning community that cultivates reflective practice, excellence in teaching, and a passion for learning.

Lawrence School values and encourages families to be active, involved, and well-informed partners in the learning process.
