Its a growing school. Like most schools you have some great teachers and some poor but overall the teachers care and I would rate them a 2 out of 5. The school overall has a strong family atmosphere and would rank it a 4 out of 5.

Lowell Catholic's family enviorment is what attracted my son to this school. The small class numbers as well as the personal care and concern these teacher's shower these kid's with is somthing so special and is what is missing I feel in other schools today. The academics offered for every type of student is here at Lowell Catholic. If you have a chance just take a peek at the colleges our graduating seniors from last year are attending. It's mighty impressive! There is a geniune concern that every Lowell Catholic student be successful and the staff goes above and beyond to reach those goals! This school is certainly worth taking a look at- Once people do, they are hooked! Each individual is someone special and unique and this school will teach you to bring out the very best that you can be to reach goals that you might think are unreachable!

I graduated from Lowell Catholic in 2002,and I must say going to this school was probably one of the best things that could have happeneed to me. The class sizes enables students to form a relationship with teachers which allows students to feel more comfortably and therefore helps them to perform to their fullest potential.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
