Map of Bowman Elementary School address.

Bowman is an excellent elementary school. We've had nothing but positive experience with the teachers and the principal especially does an excellent job of placing students with the right teacher. The curriculum is grade appropriate and the teachers are very creative in many ways to motivate kids. I think Dr. Anton( principal) is doing an excellent job of support her staff and I can see that the teachers are happy to be at Bowman.

My child has been going to Bowman for the last 3 years now. As a parent of an extremely bright, child and a resident of Lexington, it pains me enormously to be writing this report about the school. To say the least, my experience has been quite disappointing. The principal seems distracted and disinterested in the purpose. It's a a bit of a gamble to get the right teacher. Either you get an extremely motivated teacher or one that's completely disinterested. The other schools in this town are ok based on my interactions with other parents. Eventhough I live here, I do feel that this town is overrated.

Exceptional staff, extraordinary teachers, and a supportive parent community - each child reaches his/her fullest potential.
