School Reviews

  • Recommended February 09, 2014 - 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. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended March 16, 2012 - Whiteman is the most fantastic experience. My time at Whiteman made me a far superior student, than most of my peers in College and gave me the self confidence to excel in many area's of my life. I am indebted to the Whiteman staff for creating, an amazing experience; when I think about all my International and Colorado adventures, affiliated with the school - I can't help but smile even 30 years later.
