I have moved to Georgia in 2016 about to start my freshman year. To be honest, I was a little scared and worried because I did not know anybody on my first day of High School. After I have settled for a while, I actually started to love Lowndes High School. The teachers develop a good friendship with their students and the students gets involved in everything they can and I knew I would be able to fit in just well. I progressively made a new friend almost each day and I still keep in touch with them. In 2017, I made a big decision of joining the cheer team and it was the best choice I ever made. Not only did I make the team for 3 years, I also met my second family. Making the cheer team changed my life for the better and I am so grateful to have that opportunity to build new friendships with the team. They are the reason why I am proud to call myself a Lowndes High Viking student!

Lowndes High School is an amazing school to spend four years at! Almost all of the teachers truly care about their students, and even the students that aren’t in their classrooms. The administration wants the students to succeed. There are tons of fun activities and clubs to get involved in, as well as, sports teams to try out for. The only thing I would recommend changing would be getting updated text books and the parking.
While attending Lowndes High School, I appreciated the academic support from the faculty members. They were willing to meet with me and other students for additional tutoring after hours if we needed further help in understanding the material. Furthermore, the faculty members continually pushed their students towards excellence, encouraging to try new extracurricular activities in and out-of state, and due to their encouragement, I was able to to become a more well-rounded college student, who was eager to explore new cultures by studying abroad and try new clubs like Phi Kappa Phi and the Institute of Healthcare Improvement.
