Lowell lacks leadership and direction. It is apparent that the students run the school, not the staff. It is a shame that the few teachers and staff that are good at theire job do not have the support and guidance of their superiors.

3 years ago, the first time my child came to this school I was in doubt, but this school did do what they said. They would teach my child every thing that she needs to know and also had programms for my child. I will be sending my other child here as well
