Lowell Senior High School Reviews

Throughout my years at Lowell Senior High School have been a fulfilled experience. From the start of my freshman year where there is a separate freshman area just to have the freshman class adjust to the new schedule and new environment. The staff at Lowell Senior High School will go above and beyond just to see a child succeed throughout their time at the school, if they are willing to put forth the effort. There have been changes while I have been attending such as our dress code, academics, and how we treat everyone at the high school. I do wish that the school would put more attention and time towards the art and music department. The marching band uniforms are falling apart year after year. Those uniforms were brand new in 1990 when my dad was a freshman there at Lowell. Three generations of my family members before me have worn these uniforms, now myself and my two brothers have worn them. Our music that we play is old. Everything comes out of the teachers pocket.

I would have to say the teachers in highschool were amazing. Most of them cared for their students and did what they could for them to pass. The school has many pep rallies or events for the first tri, but the second and third tri are lacking any activities. I think it should be balanced out throughout the year to avoid students becoming very disinterested. The thing that could use more work is the special ed teaching. Lately the school has been cutting out awards for honors students like the yearly icecream and announcing the students during graduations which is kind of disappointing. Overall though it is a good school. I’ve meet amazing people I hope to hang out with after highschool. The school encourages people to try their hardest and inspires them to dream big.
I loved everything about being in Lowell my whole grade school career. I believe that with the way society works now a days there are always going to be some aspects of high school or the faculty of highs schools, will always have the chance and drive to improve on. I have noticed that the pay for teachers in high school is a joke to them. I have constantly heard a select few teachers go on and on about how they do not ever actually get paid enough, so why would they care if our academic career suffers a bit. Therefore, this all creates an ongoing chain effect that in turn places us adolescents under extreme pressure, and we are held accountable for things deemed by teachers that are completely and utterly out of our control. To me this is childish and completely unfair. Teachers should find a different job that truly makes them happy to leave for work in the morning and where they do not feel the incessant desire to drag us down with them into a state of unsatisfaction and sorrow.
