We've had two daughters graduate from the Lowell Whiteman School in the past 5 years. Their experience there was both stunning and outstanding. Our girls loved every aspect of the school, saw the world as a result of the Global Immersion Program (i.e., Peru, Bolivia, Tanzania, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, and Tibet), and skied in the finest powder the Rockies have to offer. College preparedness: we would say so. Our eldest is soon to be a second semester college senior with a 3.9 cumulative GPA at the University of Montana and our younger daughter received a Presidential Scholarship at Montana State University in Bozeman. The LWS offers small class size, an incredibly beautiful setting, and a wonder and caring faculty and staff. A shame my wife and I have only four thumbs up between us to give it. Seriously though, check it out. You'll be amazed.
I have two children at the Lowell Whiteman School in stunning Steamboat Springs. My son competes in Alpine skiing and my daughter is a freshman looking forward to her global emersion trip to India. The school offers challenging college prep academics and caters to my sons competition schedule. he trains with SSWSC, a top ranked ski club. We chose the Lowell Whiteman School because of its tremendous legacy, and the wonderful town of Steamboat Springs. As we do not live in the United States we had unlimited choices, The Lowell Whiteman School has been the right choice for our family.
This school is extraordinary! It has a challenging academic course load but also lots of outdoor adventure time to keep students physically active. Classes are small and taught by enthusiastic instructors. All are college preperatory courses and students are challenged. However, every teacher wants their students to succeed and goes out of their way to ensure success. Numerous camping/hiking/kayaking/horseback riding, etc. trips take place in the fall with all students participating according to their interests. In the winter students are skiing, either for fun or competitively. However, the foreign travel portion of the school year is by far the thing students look forward to. Four destinations are chosen each. Students get to rank their choices and then groups are made from there. The students spend time in remote villages, provide help and do community service projects for the villages they stay in and come home changed in numerous positive ways. We love Lowell Whiteman! What a great school with great opportunities for our children.
The best education in Steamboat; the best place in the world to spend four years!
This is an awesome school. The teachers and the students build great relationships with their teachers, thus enabling them to learn the information more readily. The teachers here are great, and the students are all kind and polite. For the residential life,I enjoys it much. I am counting down the days until school starts, and can barely wait another minute!
