Born of a desire to serve the diverse children and families of Boston in the early 20th century, Eliot-Pearson has a history of commitment to social justice. Since the election, children have experienced hate-inspired bullying, young adults have been physically attacked, and families have felt under siege. Especially in these troubling times, the faculty of Eliot-Pearson reaffirm our own developmental roots. As always, we stand against intolerance, exclusion, and bigotry in all forms wherever it may be found, even in ourselves.
