Our Approach

Innovative and Intentional Design

A Lowell education honors the ways that children learn and provides an environment that fosters their curiosity and efficacy. Students are regularly encouraged to participate and reflect on what is being taught, as well as take initiative in forming their own ideas and presenting them to others. Our curriculum promotes higher-level thinking at every age and stage, and we strengthen problem-solving skills by posing open-ended questions and inviting students to analyze and apply information in all subject areas.

Avenues to learning are varied. In addition to full-class activities, we also provide small group and one-to-one interactions, as well as frequent field trips and experiential opportunities—both on and off campus. Investigating diverse perspectives is an essential element of the curriculum, and every student has a valuable voice in our learning community. Teachers form strong bonds with students, which leads to more in-depth discourse and the motivation to pursue knowledge even further.

From our classroom environments and integrated curriculum to the respectful way we address one another and our commitment to inclusivity, equity, and multicultural understanding, there is purposeful design and rigor in everything we do to help Lowell students grow and thrive. Our approach enables children to learn more deeply, broaden their understanding of the world, and gain skills they will benefit from throughout their lives.
