    The Lowell Whiteman School in gorgeous Steamboat Springs Colorado provides its students with both a college preparatory education and an adventuresome global experiential program. The largest classes never exceed 14 students and many classes have fewer than ten. The faculty is amazing teaching classes contributing to dorm life leading trips around the world camping and biking and skiing like pros. The student body is curious hardworking kind active and fun-loving. The school is a 9th-12th boarding and day school that has challenging and rewarding college-prep academics at its heart. Along with the academics come opportunities to ski competitively and recreationally to climb 14-ers practice Leave No Trace ethics teach monks English in Sikkim build sustainable greenhouses in a Chilean village climb Machu Pichu visit a war memorial in Viet Nam and walk the Great Wall of China. The relationships among students and faculty and staff are real everyone learns grows works (and plays) together in a community with strong values of integrity perseverance responsibility and collaboration. The Lowell Whiteman School is one-of-a-kind. It doesn't get any better.

    LWS harbors an incredible environment for 9-12th graders. They incorporate a global immersion program into their college prep academic curriculum for a majority of their students. They also cater to competitive winter athletics for those alpine skiing or snowboarding nordic skiing freestyle moguls and jumping. With an emphasis on experiential education within academia they produce global thinkers enthused to take on the next step

    We've had two daughters graduate from the Lowell Whiteman School in the past 5 years. Their experience there was both stunning and outstanding. Our girls loved every aspect of the school saw the world as a result of the Global Immersion Program (i.e. Peru Bolivia Tanzania Vietnam Cambodia China and Tibet) and skied in the finest powder the Rockies have to offer. College preparedness we would say so. Our eldest is soon to be a second semester college senior with a 3.9 cumulative GPA at the University of Montana and our younger daughter received a Presidential Scholarship at Montana State University in Bozeman. The LWS offers small class size an incredibly beautiful setting and a wonder and caring faculty and staff. A shame my wife and I have only four thumbs up between us to give it. Seriously though check it out. You'll be amazed.

    I have two children at the Lowell Whiteman School in stunning Steamboat Springs. My son competes in Alpine skiing and my daughter is a freshman looking forward to her global emersion trip to India. The school offers challenging college prep academics and caters to my sons competition schedule. he trains with SSWSC a top ranked ski club. We chose the Lowell Whiteman School because of its tremendous legacy and the wonderful town of Steamboat Springs. As we do not live in the United States we had unlimited choices The Lowell Whiteman School has been the right choice for our family.

    This school is extraordinary! It has a challenging academic course load but also lots of outdoor adventure time to keep students physically active. Classes are small and taught by enthusiastic instructors. All are college preperatory courses and students are challenged. However every teacher wants their students to succeed and goes out of their way to ensure success. Numerous camping/hiking/kayaking/horseback riding etc. trips take place in the fall with all students participating according to their interests. In the winter students are skiing either for fun or competitively. However the foreign travel portion of the school year is by far the thing students look forward to. Four destinations are chosen each. Students get to rank their choices and then groups are made from there. The students spend time in remote villages provide help and do community service projects for the villages they stay in and come home changed in numerous positive ways. We love Lowell Whiteman! What a great school with great opportunities for our children.

    This is an awesome school. The teachers and the students build great relationships with their teachers thus enabling them to learn the information more readily. The teachers here are great and the students are all kind and polite. For the residential life I enjoys it much. I am counting down the days until school starts and can barely wait another minute!
