    The Staff of Lowman Hill is dedicated to helping all student reach their fullest potential. The current Principal has worked hard to bring in Comer philosophy and applying such. Like many 501 schools unfortunately I feel academics is being put aside to get passing test scores. The staff and PTO works together to bring in outside activities and learning adventures. More parent involvement is needed. 06/07 school year we booked more than 400 volunteer hours with approximately 70 volunteers.

    Lowman Hill's kindergartend teachers are excellent. I believe all of the teachers are loving and helpful and full of knowledge they willingly share with the kids. My son loved going here. The new principal is nice but still a bit stand-offish. The speech team was great. My son will miss his teachers when he moves to another school. He learned a great deal from Mrs. Gisi. Thanks LH!
