I love this school. They really do care about their students. My daughter has been with Lowery for the last three years and now off to Aragon. She has improved by leaps and bounds with the help of her teachers. thank you

Thanks to previous parent reviewer. You exactly expressed my sentiments toward Lowery Elementary: "Superior school in every way. Staff that cares about what is best for students. Warm loving environment, while striving and achieving top notch education goals. Tops in parental involvement."

My one year there was the best in all of the elementaries I have attended. Teachers are excellent, students a bit spoiled but the neighborhood is fairly wealthy and well to-do. Music teacher was amazing when I went there; I don't know if he is still there. Great school.

Great staff. Very caring. No school can please every parent but bottom line is Lowery has the best interst of the kids in mind. What more can a parent ask for.

Lowery Elementary has a dedicated staff working toward the success of all its students. The learning environment is warm and caring and parent involvement is superior.

I have been less than pleased with the staff at this school. I understand the need for rules and discipline in the learning environment, however, the rigidity of this school is ridiculous. The school lunches are sub-par at best. This is my second year dealing with Lowery and look forward to my daughter getting out of there, we may move to expedite the process.

I am thrilled to be blessed with a school of this quality for my children. The new principal is wonderful and was a very needed change! There are a couple teachers that should not be teaching children but you will have that wherever you go. All in all we are very happy there.

My daughter went there K and first grade. I loved her teachers and (most) of the staff were friendly and helpful to my daughter. We are moving to Birkes and I hope we like it as much as we did Lowery. I have to give the music teacher a definate 'thumbs up'. He was funny and kept the kids happy but in control.

New Principal for 2006-07 school year. Much needed improvement in this area. Excellent school in every way.

My child is a graduate of Lowery Elementary and it is a high-quality school, as most in Cy-Fair ISD are. We couldn't be more happy with her education there. The teachers were always responsive and returned any phone calls promptly and courteously. They are also very knowledgable about the content they teach. Highly recommend this school - it's the best.

Lowery is an excellent elementary school! The students and staff are the best!

It has been a few years since my kids went here...but, it was considered a fine school and still is. The staff was kind and knowledgable - and were quick to test my kids when they saw signs that they were not being challenged. The horizons program was great and offered the challenge my kids needed. I am sure Lowery has continued to progress. The parents were very involved and the art and music programs were sufficient. There were several extracurricular activities offered after classes and weekends.
