Lower has a great academic program and the administration is very dedicated to ensuring their students are receiving the best education they can get. The school itself is very inclusive of every race, gender, and ability in all aspects. This includes sports, clubs, and academic classes of all kinds. Although, like any high school, students and staff may disagree on some levels but, for the most part, LCMRHS is a great place for students to keep included in their environment and well educated as students.
As a senior at Lower Cape May Regional I can say that overall my high school experience was pleasant and beneficial. The sport programs and AP academic courses gave me experience that will be very useful in my upcoming collegiate career. Along with this some of the staff members including teachers and coaches served as mentors and motivators to me. However, I know some of my classmates would not describe our school like this because they didn't receive the experience that I did. Continuing on this premise, I believe that Lower Cape May Regional is home to opportunity but it falls on the individual student in order to chose whether they want to be on the track to succeed.
