    "Lowell is known for being a good school, and academically very rigorous. If you have never been there, you might assume that means there's fantastic teachers with good teaching methods. That's not the case. What Lowell offers is a very large, very driven student body that loves competition, and a lot of AP classes. So if being around other motivated people motivates you, it's a great school. This also means expectations, pressure, and work load are very high. It's a very large school, with about 2400 students. It's also in SFUSD meaning there's a shortage of teachers, and those who do work are underpaid and often not very good or experienced. You won't be getting a lot of personal attention unless you go out of your way to build relationships with your teachers. Don't get me wrong, there are a handful of good teachers, but you're bound to have some pretty bad ones at some point. Lowell does receive a lot of funding, so we do have some really good extra curriculars and facilites."

    "At Lowell High School, I got the opportunity to take any classes that I'm interested in and join the sports or clubs that I was passionate about. I liked how everyone there were supportive, which made the environment better for learning. In the future, I would like to see Lowell become more diverse in terms of the student population."

    "Lowell high school was the place I discovered who I was and what I wanted to be. (Most of) its teachers had a welcoming vibe and allowed me to flourish into a great young mind. I had some bumps in the road but I came out stronger, wiser, and more ready for college. It was here I met some life-long friends that I can't imagine my life without them. However, this school isn't for everyone. It has a very competitive vibe, where everyone vies for the top spot of the class. It can be quite demanding and pushes you to the breaking point, but it is there where you learn your strengths and weaknesses and what works best for you."

    "Lowell is not very diverse. The academics are great, however, I feel that it lacks rich culture of all of its students."

    "The school itself is wonderful. The students are bright and talented in every field. Nevertheless, the school needs to understand that students have limits, and take these into consideration."
