Lowell honors the individuality of each child. We give children time and space to grow and nurture the strengths of each individual. A fundamental understanding of the developmental stages of cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth informs all that we do with children. This approach provides the foundation for children to be highly motivated learners with a strong sense of self-worth and efficacy.
Lowell promotes active, collaborative learning with an emphasis on building conceptual understanding and developing strong creative, critical, and analytical thinking. Carefully designed learning experiences and curricula are integrated across subjects, draw on powerful, relevant content and student interests, and support the development of internal motivation and a strong voice. Learning at Lowell is rigorous: thinking is emphasized over rote learning, and students are expected to use their knowledge and skills creatively and practically.
