Lower Township Elementary School District Reviews

1 review
Great school, at least when I attended. My sister attends now and has informed me that after they got rid of the three track system (regular, college bound, and honors), the academic quality of the school has devolved. There are still great teachers there but they've forced a lot of students who have absolutely zero interest in going to college into taking college-bound courses. God knows why. I'm a huge nerd and loved college and love teaching but you don't have to go to college to be successful. All Lower did by getting rid of the three track system is force kids who want to become electricians, stagehands, and otherwise pursue trades to take courses they don't want to take, which makes it more difficult for the teachers trying to help the nerdy students like me who want to go to college to learn the course material. We're not all alike, and trust me, there are plenty of electricians making a lot more money as I do as a teacher.
