    Lowell School Reviews

    I have one alum and two middle schools sons at Lowell. The younger two started in Kindergarten and the oldest in third after attending our local public elementary school. Although my sons are completely different, Lowell has managed to understand and bring out the best in each of them. My oldest, the quiet introvert at public school, was completely brought out of his shell and is now a confident 10th grader. Lowell taught him self advocacy. My younger two have been encouraged to use their over abundance of self-confidence to boost other children up. Thanks to Lowell, they are empathetic leaders. Lowell has helped me parent my boys to be their best selves -- confident yet kind, thoughtful and public-spirited. All of that PLUS a leading edge curriculum that allows them to easily attend the top public and independent high schools in the city!

    As a captain/owner of a charter service that was hired by Lowell School to carry 38 students with accompanying teachers, I would like to share how impressed I was with how polite, well behaved and mature the students were. They asked thoughtful and intelligent questions. It is obvious that they are getting a first class education. Hats off to Lowell School, its quality teachers and the parents. Job well done!
    I am the parent of three Lowell alums who graduated in 2008. They are identical male triplets and they are black. At 3 years old, our primary objective when selecting a school for them was safety. What we found was that not only did Lowell create a safe space for each child, but also that Lowell respected the individuality of each child and allowed each voice to be heard. Being identical triplets, it was also important to us that our sons be treated as individuals. Needless to say, they thrived at Lowell!
