This school is very run down and is not in the best neighborhood. I think many of the families of children who attend are low income and it shows. The school is in need of some major updating. I think they are lacking on security so for that reason I would not recommend it. There is also a lot of bullying that goes on that the school does nothing about, probably due to lack of funds.
Lowell school I think is one of the worst schools in Missoula. They have the worst security for the school and they could care less if there is a bunch of bums hanging on the play ground. This school needs some serious help!!
100 years old and still going strong, Lowell is a great old building , designed by architect A.J. Gibson,which needs some sprucing up. It will be worth it--Lowell is the center of a gutsy, creative community struggling to survive in this economy.
The parents in this schools area seem very disengaged. This is one of the poorest areas and the stresses on the demographic are apparent in the students. I has made it very hard to get a good education here.
