Although Lowell is 2 star rated but it has a whole bunch of dedicated and good teachers. However the curriculum should be more challening.

If you're a parent of a child resisting the move to a new school, have them read this: I cried the day my parents told me I would be leaving Gatewood for Lafayette, and reacted similarly when they made me move from Lafayette to Lowell. It's a big deal to switch schools, and it's especially hard when ...  Read more

Lowell has one of the most dedicated parent, teacher and student communities that I have seen.

I LOVE LOWELL ELEMENTARY! I attended this school from 2nd grade through 5th grade and they were the best years of my life. All the teachers are outstanding and the curriculum is engaging. Lowell supports an 'out of the box' thinking style and the teachers altered their teaching methods to fit the ...  Read more

Lowell is not as good as it sounds. There are a lots of problems underneath. One of the biggest problem is 'one size for all' for those 'gifted children'. I transferred my child to another school and he's really got a huge progress in both academic and in positive thinking.

The teachers are ...  Read more

We're half-way thru kindergarten, and Lafayette seems great for most kids. My son's teacher offers a rigorous academic program (most kids learn to read in her class). Parent involvement is excellent. Private onsite supplemental activities (Spanish, Mandarin, science) are available as well as afterschool ...  Read more

My daughter attended Lowell in grades 2 through 5 and she loved it there. The academics were challenging, but not overwhelming. The teachers were willing to work with us to help my daughter learn in the best way. The school staff was friendly. The level of enthusiasm from parents was great, and the principal ...  Read more
