Lowell School honors the individuality of each child. We give children, age 2 1/2 through 8th grade, time and space to grow, and we 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. We foster intellectual and emotional self-reliance, with a guiding value of respect for each other. This approach provides the foundation for children to be highly motivated learners with a strong sense of self-worth and efficacy.
We embrace a leading-edge, research-based curriculum intentionally designed to nurture the development of creative problem solvers and compassionate leaders. Our hands-on, experiential curriculum, prepares students to make a positive difference in the world.
In addition to offering the full complement of academic courses, the arts, and PE, Lowell has several signature programs. 1) Our innovative social studies curriculum combines the NTSS standards and the Teaching Tolerance Social Justice Standards. 2) Our STEM program begins in Pre-Primary School. 3) All students K and up take swimming lessons in our pool and have the opportunity to take part in our Athletics program.
After school offerings include minicourses, instrumental lessons, pop bands, sports teams, and after care.
