    "We have 2 children at Lowell who now are in the 8th and 6th grades. Our kids are very different learners. Lowell works well for both of them. Lowell's particular strength is teaching to the strengths of the kids as individuals and teaching them to become learners -- to think imaginatively and with structure and to express themselves clearly in writing and orally in all their subjects -- mathematics, science or the humanities. The teaching is also very hands-on and integrated; so, for example, if they are studying medieval history and sieges, they will building catapults and studying about their physics and the mathematics of moving objects as well as medieval music and dance. There is also a real warmth and joy about the school that you feel as soon as you enter the doors and a genuine excitement among the students to create and learn."

    "Our son has been enrolled in Lowell's primary education program for almost four years and we are delighted with the experience. The diverse student body, faculty and administration continues to enhance our son's world view, and our experience of the first round of standardized testing confirms the hight level of academic achievement of the school overall. The campus is one of the finest we have ever seen. The new construction on the middle school building is inspirational and speaks to the community's commitment to the quality arts program and STEM education. Can't wait for the new library! Very satisfied Mom & Dad of 4th Grader"

    "Lowell is a fantastic school for my child and my family. My child looks forward to going to school everyday and has fun. Since she is fairly young, that is exactly what I want her to feel. At the same time, she comes home and is excited to talk about the fun things that she did that day, all of those fun things being educational. Lowell teachers and staff are patient, understanding and flexible."

    "Lowell is a wonderful school. We have been part of the community for over 10 years. We have been consistently impressed by Lowell s attention to the developmental and individual needs of children. The community is diverse and welcoming. Our second child is now in middle school. She is engaged and happy. The curriculum is incredibly well designed. The students complete complex projects that challenge everyone. The teachers are passionate about their subject areas and the kids they teach. The delta program (what other schools call advisory) helps the kids take more responsibility for their learning and themselves. We can t imagine a better place to go to middle school."

    "We have multiple children at Lowell and the school has been fantastic for each child. Thoughtful and caring teachers really take the time to support and challenge students - from extra help to extra learning opportunities if a child has a gift or passion. Small classes and a dynamic hands-on curriculum makes learning a joyful experience. The school has changed a bit in recent years, adding a great (inclusive) team sports program and a terrific middle school. The campus is perched on Rock Creek Park, and really beautiful - most importantly kids use it fully. Great outplacement to wonderful DC high schools."
