Lowell Area Schools
In our growing community and surrounding rural areas, Lowell Area Schools (LAS), located 18 miles east of Grand Rapids, offers educational opportunities where every student is guided and encouraged to reach his or her full potential. High expectations are established for all students, whose number totals just under 4000, such as having 95% of our general education students achieving at grade level or beyond in reading and math. Research-based practices and data analysis, along with a strong focus on staff development, are used to enhance instruction and student achievement.
