From The Lovett School

At The Lovett School, we educate the whole child to thrive in school and in life. Our students develop intellect and confidence in an academic setting that has a national reputation. We prioritize the formation of good character and encourage it through unique community experiences and service learning.

In 1926, Mrs. Eva Edwards Lovett, an innovative educator who emphasized the development of the whole child, began The Lovett School with 20 boys and girls. Today, Lovett has more than 1,650 students from 78 different zip codes and 11 counties in the metropolitan area.

As a college-preparatory institution, our coursework is strong, and creative and critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and a love of learning are major objectives. Outside the classroom, Lovett encourages our students to discover themselves through the arts and athletics.

    The Lovett School Reviews

    The Lovett School has many Resources available; however most of the money, support, and focus goes into sports programs. The STEM program is severely lacking compared to many other schools, especially in the teaching area. Many teachers hold bias opinions and try to shape students with their own beliefs. Lovett is not open to "new thinking" and Their administration reflects this. I believe that the education, however, is outstanding and this school should be ranked higher for the rigorous AP and Honors classes that Lovett produces. These AP/Honors classes are extremely worthwhile, and for this reason I believe that Academically this school deserves an A+++.

    The arts are well taught and given a great amount of focus at Lovett but here end my positive comments. The Lower School did not adequately prepare my kids for their middle and upper school experience, not teaching grammar or offering a challenging math curriculum for the most talented, and was a waste of money. Many teachers in the Middle School were incompetent, particularly in math, which meant we had to hire a tutor. The Upper School has the best teachers but given the cost, too often instruction was substandard , particularly in some AP classes. The community is elitest and cliquish, among both parents and students alike. Would not recommend to anyone.
    We have two children in the Lovett lower school and have had an outstanding experience. As a couple educated at top Northeastern colleges we have high academic expectations, which Lovett has exceeded. Innovative curricula like Singapore Math and the reading/writing workshops engage and challenge the students. Well funded fine arts and design thinking programs enrich the academic program. Outstanding teachers flawlessly manage classrooms with differentiated learning. Staring in K, the Guidance class fosters good decision making and servant leadership - as our kids say ”being kind matters at Lovett!” Lovett has made enormous strides in diversity - our children’s friends are a diverse group with parents who hail from across the U.S. and the world representing today’s Atlanta. “Zip Code”‘diversity is also very present and increasing with Lovett’s new bus program from Midtown and other areas. Visit Lovett - it won’t disappoint.
