Over 25% of our students speak a language other than English at home.
Approximately 15% of our students are homeless or living in transitional housing.

Our mission is to implement an integrated multi-tired system of support (MTSS) framework through professional development and collaborative leaming to close the opportunity gap for every Lowell Dragon.
MTSS is a systematic way to report and track student performance in academics and social/emotional domains to ensure each and every student is receiving the supports he/she needs.
Our vision is to grow Dragons who are
in a collaborative school climate and culture built on relationships, informed by a lens of equity, and rich with academic and social learning opportunities.
