Our Campus

Lowell is located on eight acres in Northwest Washington, DC, just off upper 16th Street near Rock Creek Park. Our tree-filled campus and proximity to the District's many resources make it an ideal educational setting for children of all ages, with ample space to play, splash, slide, run, draw, observe, and discover.
Lowell’s beautiful campus is a picturesque and peaceful home for all members of our community. At the same time, its natural setting provides abundant opportunities for outdoor learning, hands-on experimentation, and environmental observation. Students can investigate the life cycle of tadpoles in the stream that runs through our front field. They can track the many species of birds that also call our campus home. And, they can cross the street and take a hike in Rock Creek Park during their outdoor science classes.

Indoors, our facilities offer advanced resources and spaces that enable students to immerse themselves in many areas of study and a wide range of interests and activities. These include multiple maker spaces, science and engineering labs, art studios, woodshops, libraries, a spacious dance studio, a state-of-the-art black box theater, a gym, a heated indoor pool, a garden, and a green roof.

Acres of green space, highlighted by Kalmia Creek and adjacent to Rock Creek Park, provide our students with daily opportunities to learn about and in nature.

Starting in Pre-Primary School, all students bolster their STEM and STEAM education through access to maker spaces, science labs, and performance venues.

We believe that play is learning! All students enjoy breaks in the day to let their imaginations and bodies run free on our playgrounds and grassy fields.
