Lowell Elementary School 3

Unrealistic expectations around recess time - too much structure for young children. Front office staff really not very friendly. Sort of a brain washing environment for students in general - everyone should be the same, act the same, think the same things.

Lowell Elementary School 2

After almost 3 years in this highly rated school, I made the decision to remove my child. I was constantly told that my daughter wanted too much attention, and that she interrupted all other students. I was told that my daughter was a problem. I was also asked by a teacher if I had considered ADHD. The last straw with Lowell Elementary was when my daughter s desk was removed from the established groupings of student in the classroom, to a spot at the window facing outward and away from the other students. I was never informed of this action, and found out more than two months later on my own. This was their answer to behavioral issues. After this, I took control of the situation by placing my child in a local private school, where she is now flourishing beautifully. The teacher at her new school tells me that my daughter is a very smart, and was probably bored in the other school. They state her behavior is normal student for her age, and they see no evidence of ADHD. I would not recommend this school.
