This paper specifically focuses on Jane’s experiences and maturation at Lowood Institution. Through the school, the reader can grasp a great sense of Jane’s views and comprehend its pivotal role in the phase of independence and a frame of mind that the heroine undergoes. With its contribution to Jane, it yields rich opportunities to almost every stage of her life. The heroine’s rejection of old conventions and adaptation of a manner of rebellion give credence to her mind and oncoming aspirations. While being a bildungsroman and delineating the traumas of a frustrated and alienated girl attempting to find a remedy in life, the book points the heroine gets intellectual and matures physically and psychologicallyin the course of time.One of pivotal moments—probably the most important major turning point for her is the one she steps into Lowood which will be a central, unifying and integrating phase whereby her life will revolve and the faces and experiences that appear there remain compelling andconsequently their force is felt by Jane deeply and effectively. On a larger view, her challenge and determination enacted at this stage of her life function as a transformation of mechanism that may incite assertive social, ethical and psychological outcomes. Therefore, the article aims to delineate Lowood, seemingly having negative connotations, and its constructive impacts and consequences on the protagonist with its causes.
