I'm a first time mom trying to get used to my son being in kindergarten. Lowell has been a great help at relieving my anxiety. Always helpful, and his teachers are patient and kind with him.

I absolutely LOVE this school. I moved to Lowell from Los Angeles CA not knowing what to expect. I have since formed bonds with the both the teachers and the office staff. I have had 3 kids attend Lowell Elementary and have had nothing but the best experience. The teachers go beyond what is expected to make sure the kids are understanding what is taught. Some teachers even hold camps after school to help the kids.. this is using their own time. The parents are also involved in making the school a success.

I have a grandson in fourth grade at Lowell Elem. School. He lives in the same house as I do. I can't say enough about the school and every person I have come in contact with. The office lady is exceptionally helpful and always friendly. I am proud to say that my grandson goes to this fine school.

I have a 2nd grader and one in Kindergarten at Lowell and I cannot say enough nice things about the school overall. The administration is great. The teachers are wonderful. This is a superior elementary school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
