This is school is horrible. Most of the classrooms do not have windows and most of the walls between classrooms are temporary walls so you can hear right through them. Teacher morale is extremely low, and the students do not participate in spirit-building events. The principal is not visible to the students, in fact, most of the students don't even know who she is because she likes to sit in her office all day (I know this b/c I substituted at Lowell Scott for several years). She never offers to help teachers, she only tells them to do more and more work and takes away more of their resources every year (more of a district/state issue, but she could try thinking outside the box to solve problems). Many of the students here seem depressed. Programs rarely carry over from year to year, so there is no continuity. There is no school newspaper, debate team, or drama club. The only extracurricular activities are sports and music. The PTA is a joke. Only a few parents are members. From what I saw, the teachers worked very hard, but were so overloaded they couldn't keep up and were exhausted all the time. I am VERY glad my children did not go to school at Lowell Scott.
my sister went there for 2 years and absolte hated it. it is the worst school ever never go there i reccomend heritage
I understand some of your fustration. But it is only a bad experience if you make it. For example, how could you make that grade better? How could that argument have been handled better? How could I understand that teacher's expectations a little more clearly? If you look at things with a positive question in mind, things could make much more sense and could be potentially easier in the future. Personally, I think it is a great school with great programs run by great teachers. I am in the GT (gifted and talented) program in the sixth grade and I love all that we do and the instructors that make it possible. If you participate in the GT program, you will meet fun people like mr. Meyers and mrs. Leitzinger. An overall great place.
I have never disliked a school until we my child attended Lowell Scott. I made a point to meet all the teachers and some didn't know which child mine was in their classroom. I initially went in to talk to the principal at the beginning of the year and introduce myself to staff and never once have I been asked to participate in any way. Only one teacher has ever called all year, and bullies are ignored. I have seen so much gang activity at age 12. We will not be attending next year.
This school is absolutely amazing no matter what anyone else says, its great. Best experiece of my entire life, they have great teachers and it is a very loving school that accepts everyone.
Lowell Scott is the best school ever! I have As in every class! People who think it it is bad should really listen in class more, so you can get better grades! It is not the school's fault!
lowell scott middle school is by farTHE WORST school i have ever attended! they do try, however, so many students are getting pregnant, using drugs, or alcohol! there is some definite problems with this school with the disiplinary action! im apologize for this statement, however this was one of the worst experiences ive had a school
lowell scott middle school is totally FABULOUS!!! i love it and would reccomend it to everyone!
This school has a fabulous academic program. They offer different teachings for different students. There's the Primera program for more arts-centered students and they also offer the GATE program for smarter children of which I am a part of. The teachers were great and although the school is very cliquey I had an overall good experience at this school
There is an atmosphere of failure at this school. The teachers, counsellors, staff and students expect D's and F's. There is embarrassed or shocked when assignments aren't done and there are few consequences for such behavior. I feel as if I am the only one in the school environment that's telling my child that zeros and failing grades are not acceptable and unfortunately, my children are choosing to listen to the other voices. I've asked the teachers and counsellors to hold my kids back if they fail and almost without exception tell me it's against their policy. They tell me that there are other kids doing more poorly than mine! Doesn't that mean there is a problem? I am going to pull them out of this school and either find another school that will support my standards or I'll do the computer- based program offered online and supervise the kids myself.
Poor parent information in this day and age. Teachers do not keep information updated on the website. Teachers not teaching in some cases.
I went to this school for a year and it was the worst year of my life. The teachers weren't helpful at all and i got into a fight every week, oh by the way i am a girl. I left after on year to go to crossroads middle for two years and got straight A's. This school is seriously horrible.
I think that this school is by far he best. Mr.Arnell is an awesome spainsh teacher. He dosnt make you learn from the book, he helps you and teachs you right! The teachers are awesome! Go Team Discovery.
This is the best school there ever was! All 3 of my kids got straight A's at this school and no other!
this is a fantastic school i really like it, it is a really good education for students like me so i would give this a five star cuse i think that the teachers know what they are doing.
