Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The Mabin School is committed to social justice. Every child is encouraged to be a changemaker, and use empathy, teamwork, leadership and problem-solving to combat injustice. Our smallness enables us to know one another deeply and to appreciate our strengths. We know that if everyone at The Mabin School is to feel a sense of belonging, it is our job to facilitate strong relationships and to celebrate difference. Inclusion is a core value of The Mabin School. We welcome and support a diversity of learning profiles, and believe that greater diversity leads to deeper learning.

We seek to increase the racial and socio-economic diversity of our student body so that a wider range of voices can inform our understanding of ourselves, each other, our city, our country, and our world. We seek to invite and amplify the voices of equity-deserving communities, including BIPOC perspectives. We welcome families that are part of 2SLGBTQ+ communities and, as a non-denominational school, our families come from multiple religious traditions. We are committed to studying and implementing anti-racist and anti-oppressive approaches, with specific attention to anti-black racism and the Truth and Reconciliation process. We strive to uncover unconscious bias at both the individual and system level, to recognize and critically engage with all kinds of social injustice, and to work and learn together towards positive social transformation. We are working to ensure our staff reflects the diversity of our city so that our students have non-stereotypical models of leadership.

At The Mabin School, we want all members of our community to be able to bring their authentic selves. The Mabin School’s Board, Staff, and Students are engaged in an ongoing process to continuously improve as teachers and learners in our work to become a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive learning community for all. We are committed to instilling in every child a sense of belonging. We invite all families to join us in this work.
