Are there any parents that would tell me what they think of Lowell Scott middle school?

Hi Jennifer,

I've read the reviews here... Lowell Scott concerns me... Here are a few reasons.

First, the elementary feeder schools are ranked very low. In fact, some of them are required to offer transportation to other schools if parents choose- because their performance is so low.

Second, the % of students who have reduced/free lunch is very high for the area. It's said to say, but this is usually an indicator of behavioral problems and poor parent involvement.

Third, I had my son enrolled in Lowell Scott for ONE DAY and chickened out...

HOWEVER: None of the middle schools in the Meridian school district rank very well... and yet nearly all of the High Schools DO rank well. That makes me think there's a lot of flux in 6-8 grades.... that must get ironed out?

We are still debating whether to MOVE so that our son can attend a different school. Right now he is in a charter program that isn't a good fit for him, but we are more comfortable with him there than at Lowell. For now.
