About Us

The Lowell School serves approximately 420 students in grades preK through grade 5. We are proud to serve a diverse population which represents cultures from all over the world. Our children come from homes which speak 28 different native languages.

The school has one preK classroom, four grade-level classes in K-2, and three grade-level classrooms in grades 3-5. The school also has an Integrated Support Program (ISP program) for students with social and emotional disabilities. In addition to the classroom teachers, we have specialists in art, music, physical education, library/media, Spanish, EL, reading, math, and special education staff based on the numbers of students needing services. The school has five co-taught classrooms for students receiving inclusion support. Lowell has a strong student support team comprised of a guidance counselor, a school psychologist, a team special education chairperson, a behavior specialist, a speech and language pathologist, an occupational therapist, and a physical therapist. The school offers extended day care for all students before and after school. The school has on-site cafeteria services for breakfast and lunch.

                                          Lowell Mission 

The Lowell School, with the active involvement of its families and neighbors, seeks to provide a supportive learning environment, which fosters academic excellence, encourages individual and collaborative endeavors, and promotes social responsibility and respect for diversity. We seek to support students in developing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will serve them well in their lifetime. This requires all the abilities to effectively engage and contribute to society as they know it, and the imagination and sense of activism to change it for the better.
