    "My children have been at Lowell for 4 years. Their teachers have been committed to their success and have understood their strengths and challenges. We've had many opportunities to enjoy the school as a family. The parents are diverse and involved. There is a definite emphasis on acceptance and respect of others."

    "Lowell School has a pre-school, primary school and middle school. It is a quick 10 minute drive from our home in Chevy Chase, DC. There are short cuts through Rock Creek Park. Lowell has given our two boys the richest, most creative and exciting learning experience that we could have ever imagined. Both boys have flourished as a result of Lowell s extraordinary faculty and commitment to diversity. They foster each child s unique gifts and talents from day one, and have built year-on-year with both our sons. Our boys love going to school, knowing their teachers are excited to provide a challenging, hands-on, interesting, and multi-disciplinary curriculum. The boys know that they will be held to the highest standards of learning, creativity, collaboration and innovative thinking. Lowell has already given our boys the encouragement and foundation necessary to think confidently about their futures, whichever direction they choose. The parent community is intelligent, wordily, warm and very welcoming."

    "As far as I can tell Lowell School is the best early education institution in the world. My two sons attended from pre-K to 6th grade. Every teacher experience was excellent and each child received an education exactly tailored to their unique personalities and learning abilities. There is a strong emphasis on community building and accepting diversity. They had an affirmative action toward children of gay couples and adopted children. My children were top performers in their classes, and yet were discriminated against when applying to private schools after Lowell because the parents were not rich. Most DC private schools only give their financial aid to increase minority representation."

    "My son is a Kindergartener and I couldn't be happier! The school teaches to the whole child. My son has a fantastic teacher (and assistant teacher). The teacher is warm, receptive, and REALLY takes a genuine interest in each child. This is my son's first year- both he and I have made great friends! The community is extremely warm and welcoming. The student/teacher ratio is wonderful! The school has many extracurricular activities- a swim team, track team, basketball, etc. What I love is they even allow the K's to participate!!!! I couldn't be happier!!!!"

    "Lowell is a wonderful, nurturing, school. We have been a part of the community for 7 years and have 2 children attending. The new head of school has made important and well thought out improvements. She has done a great job of keeping the core missions in place while making good decisions including some changes to personnel to maximize quality teaching, improvement of communication with parents and supporting technological advances to name a few. Graduates of the school do in fact attend top tier schools. Eleven of last years 6th grade class members were accepted to Maret (curriculum and philosophies are very similar between the two schools). Others went to St Albens, Holton Arms, Sidwell, GDS...Middle school expansion could be very good for this school. While Lowell's pre-primary remains a gem, our best years have come in 1st, 3rd and (our current year) 4th. Strong curriculum, excellent teachers."
