Lowell High School is a good school and compares well with other schools in the area. They try very had in all aspects of education to provide a quality experience. The principal, Mr. Gough, does a great job and communicates well with the parents. One thing that I do not like about Lowell High School is they are on a trimester schedule when all the other schools in the area are on semesters. This makes it more difficult for the students having to change classes so soon. They also end up taking more elective classes because of this. Also, the grading for math classes is very tough.

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.
Cross country team was amazing! Was able to get involved in multiple organizations like the WRWW and student council. Teachers were funny and helpful!
