My daughter will be entering into 4th grade next school year. She has really advanced a great deal. Her 1st grade teacher pushed her so hard to excel and knew how to handle her. She's in the GT program and I love how they have challenged her. The other parents are very friendly and the over all school atmosphere is a warm, friendly, and welcoming one. I would definitely recommend this school to any parent.

Both of my daughters (who are now in the 6th and 8th grade) attended Lovett K-5, and they both excelled and loved the program! They did band and orchestra, respectively, and loved their school experience. It was a wonderful school with dedicated teachers, and Dawn Thompson is a highly professional, effective and dedicated leader who I expect to remain at Lovett for at least the next several years. I miss the old building (although it was falling apart), but the amazing magnet program is completely worth it. I have heard from other parents that boys have a harder time, but that was not my experience so I can't comment on it.

E.O. Lovett Elementary is a Fine Arts Magnet school. The majority of the students enter Lovett under the HISD Magnet program. This means that most students do not live within the zoned boundary. Most students attend Lovett because their parents want the integrated Fine Arts curriculum for their children and are willing to make the sacrifice necessary to attend a school outside their neighborhood. In addition to this parental commitment to educational excellence, the school has invested in features which supplement learning; a f-t science teacher, a f-t librarian, 2 f-t P.E. instructors, a reading specialist and affordable (less than $100/month) after school care, including additional fee-based programs. Also, I found the teachers to be more than competent and very dedicated. I have a student in her 6th year at Lovett. She is GT - the majority of the 2014/2015 6th grade is GT. I believe that these children are high performing because of the brain and skill-set development brought on by the early introduction and continued emphasis on the fine arts, as well as the excellent teacher and parent community support they receive.

Lovett has always been a great school - exemplary fine arts magnet. And since we got Mrs. Dawn Thompson as Principal (2012?), Lovett has been on upward trajectory. She is super organized, friendly and accessible. At the start of year, she would outline her program for improving every aspect of school experience and the entire school actually follows through. I love their 3Rs (Respectful, Responsible and Ready) theme that is woven into the entire school experience. It's a school where everyone knows everybody, and my son and daughter (grades 1 and 4) love the school very much! Extended day (3:15 to 5:30) is great too!
