Overall, I had a great experience with LHS! I really enjoy the fact that our school is New Tech centered. Doing most of my work on computers helped me to gain a better understanding of technology and my resources. I also found our teachers super helpful! They genuinely care for students and that is definitely reflected upon their teaching.

The teachers at Lowell High School are students advocates. Almost every teacher I’ve had has been more of a friend then someone you just sit there and listen to for an hour and a half every day. A few in particular have made major impacts on mine as well as other people’s lives. Most, if not all have touched at least one student in ways someone else never could, and it’s a positive learning/teaching environment. While students dread going to school for it simply being school, rarely do you ever hear the reason they don’t want to go to school is because of a certain teacher. One thing that I wish was different about the school was some of the rules they implement. I know they’re to keep the students safe and make the students focus on what’s really important but some of these rules have not made any difference other then to infuriate the students or make them want to go against the rules anyway.
I like this high school, but it could be better if we didn't have block scheduling. When I was at Hanover from 3rd grade to 8th grade, we had all the same teachers every day. Lowell doesn't do this. Also, where are all the life-skills classes, like cooking, typing, financing, and writing resumes? In another case, what is with a 30-minute lunch but a 20-minute line? You literally have to train yourself to eat fast just so you could be done with your lunch by the time the bell rings to go back to class.
