Lowell High School Reviews
Review Lowell High School
This was my first year at Lowell and from what I've seen, it strongly encourages academic achievement. Sure, it does sound good, but it has its ups and downs. Lowell offers an excellent, educational environment for hard workers and overachievers. Everyone has similar goals: get good grades and go to a good college. However, people worry too much about grades and too little about actually learning concepts. I wish that the teachers wouldn't grade so harshly so that students will focus more on learning everything instead cramming and getting A's on tests and quizzes. That way, students will actually go home with important knowledge rather than a backpack full of homework that the teacher won't even look at.
Overall, this school is very competitive. If you don't enjoy learning and studying to the best of your ability, this school may not be the best choice for you. It's easy to fall behind if you aren't committed to your studies. However, everyone at the school is helpful and supportive no matter how much you're struggling. Because of the large range of classes and clubs to choose from, meeting people and making new friends becomes a lot easier! (although it's harder to become bffs and you'll usually find that sticking with your middle school friends is easier). Academics here are top notch
Most of the stereotypes about Lowell are true; it is highly competitive with a heavy workload, and it is difficult to get good grades. It does, however, push its students to do better, because of the competition. Lowell also has great resources, with remarkable counselors and an excellent Wellness Center. There are also many clubs, so you are bound to find one that you like. If not, it is super easy to start a new one!
