199 Parent Reviews for Lowell High School

Lowell is a challenging, inspiring, fun school for my 17 YO son. He works hard, most teachers are dedicated and skilled, athletics are fantastic, and fellow students smart and kind. Awesome.

After finishing my first semester at Lowell, coming from a small private school, I am pleasantly surprised. While most of my friends are attending cushy private high schools, I am enjoying being a public school student. I have made amazing, down to earth friends who I can rely on for everything. Yes, ...  Read more

Lowell is not measurable to its reputation. My daughter arrived at this school an honor student and is leaving as one. It isn't because of this school that she is successful. Her counselor is ineffective. My child has been racially profiled by a profanity using teacher. It's her senior year and we couldn't ...  Read more

I agree with the previous post: For all the hype and self-regard, Lowell hasn't been a fabulous experience for my son.

There's not enough school support when issues come up. Some teachers are really bad but if you get the ...  Read more

Lowell is lauded because it's rated one of the top high schools in America. Unfortunately, although it's rated so high, the mantra there is "GPA, GPA, GPA." (At home, we cal lit the GPA factory.) and SATs. The focus is more on the grades and numbers, not the education. This has led to widespread cheating ...  Read more

Great academic program. Students must like to compete and study hard. Teachers are helpful and responsive even though the lines are long. Many clubs to choose from. Best of all, there is no tuition.

Lowell is an excellent high school with great peers and school environment. If your child comes home and tells you that he loves Lowell, he will be happy in college because: 1) Lowell is the right school for your child and he has the skills to adapt to a vigorous academic environment and 2) your child ...  Read more

This is one of the few best public schools in San Francisco. Most students that go to this school get admitted and go straight into UC Berkeley. Most of the students graduate from high school. The school is a huge campus with many classrooms. The school is mainly made up of Chinese American and Asian ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
