Lowell Elementary is nearby California State Highways 180 and 41 within Fresno Unified School District.

For one hundred and thirty years our Historical Lowell Neighborhood has lived and transformed as the City of Fresno grew around us. The Historical Lowell Neighborhood bounds itself by Divisadero Street (to the South), Belmont Avenue (to the North), Blackstone Avenue (to the East), and is pinched off to the west by the intersection of Highway 180 and Highway 99 creating a triangle to the north of Downtown. From its birth in 1884, the Historical Lowell Neighborhood has always been a mixture of diversity and it’s this diversity that continues to keep the neighborhood a thriving community at the heart of Fresno. 

By 1891, the growth of the neighborhood required the need of a school and land was purchased to fill this void. In 1895 Lowell Elementary School opened its doors to the community. The original structure stood at 167 Park Avenue but was demolished in 1966 because the structure was deemed too old to withstand an earthquake. Rebuilt on the same land, and with another addition in 1988, Lowell Elementary School is one of the oldest school sites that is still in use in Fresno (Lowell Elementary Profile).
