I'm currently a Junior at Lowell High School. I have been to three different high schools in the past three years of school, not including the year between freshman and sophmore year that I took off to have my son. This is by far the best school I've been to. The majority of teachers CARE. They help me out a LOT knowing that I have a child, and Don't have it easy at home. Despite this, I will be dropping out this week. My guidance counselor, knowing that my mind is made up, is helping me look into different GED programs and helping me to make a stable plan. Most counselors I know wouldn't bother. I love this school, and I'm glad that I got to experience people in power that actually care. I really needed that and it gave me the confidence to make the decisions I have and actually KNOW that i can succeed.

We moved from Bedford, MA to Lowell this past Summer and my son in (9th grade) enjoys it far better here! The Freshman Academy at Lowell High provides a healthy protection from upperclassmen. The size and diversity provides far more class choices with high honors AP classes, sports and after school programs. For advanced kids, the 'great secret' is that there is the Latin Lyceum program (need to test to qualify) which is equivalent to a 'private' school education at a public school cost. The city center also provides musical, cultural, educational experiences at UMass Lowell and the Tsongas Center. We feel our kids are safe to walk around by themselves. The diversity is amazing which reflects the world we live in with Asian, Hispanics, Blacks and Whites. Lowell has been a far better overall educational experience for our kids (14, 13, 9) than a mono-culture suburban environment. Bedford was also great and has its strengths, but moving to Lowell has been one of the best decision we've made.

Lowell High has a well rounded educational advantage for students. It is diverse and has connections with great city leaders and colleges.

I am currently a senior at LHS and I don't see the problem with the security guards. I barely see security guards when I am going to my classes. I know they're there but they are just helping with movement of the halls (since there are many kids) and safety. I personally thinki security makes everyone feel more safe. And ID Badges are not a big deal; you put it on your neck and forget about it for the rest of the day. Other than that, Lowell High has great teachers you connect with that can make you laugh and give you a good education at the same time. And with over 30 clubs and activities including Science Club, Yearbook Club, Mock Trial, and Chess Club, LHS makes it easy to get involved. And some of the sports there are the best in the state. GO LHS!

Lowell High School in Lowell, Mass. was tops! A diverse student body. We learned to respect differences in one another and look beyond the color of one's skin, the type of last name they had, or from which socioeconomic background from which they came....we were challenged to ask questions, be curious, and to embrace life-long learning, and finally we learned through the role models of our teachers and administrators to give back to the community and to the country. LHS forever!

I went to Lowell High School Class of 07. It was a great school despite the negative talk about LHS being a bad school with many problems. It has many facilities that care about the students and their educations. The school help many students prepare for college with their many college prep programs. The school also provides many after school programs. It also has diversity like no other school has. LHS ROCKS!

I'm a freshman at Lowell high now and it's the best high school ever!!! Diverse cultures and activities make this school special. A year ago, I attended Dunedun Highland Middle School in Palmharbor, Florida and it's nothing compared to Lowell high even though it is a wealthier school. W00t Lammy!!

Its an awesome school. I absoulutely love it here and I feel that it has helped me for life on my own. I love being in an academy, and it feels like my second family. There are a multitude of clubs and afterschool activities. Tutoring is alos available. But yeah, I've had some pretty awesome times here. Security may be a little tight but its only for our safety.

I went to Lowell High School, graduated in 1998 before all these fun extras were put in place, and I would have to say that it put me in a great place academically. I felt that it prepared me for college better than other high schools had prepared some of my peers. I knew other students in college who had attended high schools in wealthier districts, of course nearly every district is wealthier than Lowell, who had a much more difficult time adjusting to a college workload. Eight years later, I still feel like I recieved a very high quality education at Lowell High. I was well prepared to write research papers and the like when I was in undergrad. When writing graduate papers, I still think back to writing tips that I learned in a freshman English class.

I went to Lowell High School-Class of 2004,-I have to admit, it was overwhelming to have so much securities in every crack and corners of the school, but it was a good thing because the students can feel more safe, and at lease it's a good confort to the parents to know that 'My son/daughter is going to be safe in school...' Lowell High help me prepare for college, and the teachers are really understanding and communicative. I would recommend this school to my children and everyone else. To me this is a top notch school. With securities and strict rules, this doesn't make the school look bad, the students and how they interact in school is what makes the school look bad, I think.

Being a student at Lowell High, I can tell you all what its like. The atmosphere is great, the security is excellent and the academics are awesome. Lowell High has so much to offer and is a great way to prepare for college.

LHS security is not as bad as these others make it out to be. Other schools (*not LHS) make schools carry clear backpacks, and before entering, each student has to pass the metal detector. LHS' system of ID Badge check is nothing compared to that, and I don't see why more security would be an issue. You want your children at risk of another Columbine? LHS also provides students with the oppurtunities to succeed if they choose to with a list of academic courses that rivals small colleges, ties with Middlesex CC and UML, a wide number of activities and clubs after-school, etc. Compare Lowell High to schools with similar populations and LHS is clearly one of the better.

we think this school is way too strict with overwhelming security guards making this school making a bad name for its self. Even though with the extracurricular activities this school tries to make, it's still not a very up to scale high class school for anyone besides the people who lives in its own town
