Lowell Elementary School 5

Lowell Elementary is a school that I would not have dreamed of giving "5 stars" to before the current principal came to her position. Lowell benefits from dedicated, unflinching, unafraid of change staff, teachers, and principal. Unlike a previous poster, I do not find the academics lackluster . . . unless one holds standardized test scores in high esteem. Let's be clear, Lowell School is diverse in more than one sense of the word - socio-economically, racial/ethnically, geographically (in terms of birth countries of students and parent), and liguistically (i.e., language spoken in the home). And yet, the community of students, parents, and teachers come together in a supportive way that keeps the best interests of students in the forefront. After feeling chagrined that my daughter didn't get into the local dual immersion charter school, we are not even applying for this year b/c I cannot imagine a better environment for my daughter to learn than Lowell School.

This is a terrific school in a fantastic community. The school is very diverse and terrifically integrated. The kids seem to not only get along with one another but really encourage and respect one another. These are often things missing from larger public schools. The principal has done a terrific job fostering a "community of friends". The academics are somewhat lack luster, but I think the teachers do a great job challenging the students with the resources and funding they are given. Overall very happy with our experience!

My school works hard involving our children in the community and getting the community engaged in their education.

There is a new principal since the previous review, who's very responsive to parent & staff input. Staff are much more satisfied, and many efforts have been made to improve the atmosphere.

The leadership of the principal is lacking. There has been a huge staff turnover. School district has not responded to parent complaints.
