Overall, this school is very competitive. If you don't enjoy learning and studying to the best of your ability, this school may not be the best choice for you. It's easy to fall behind if you aren't committed to your studies. However, everyone at the school is helpful and supportive no matter how much you're struggling. Because of the large range of classes and clubs to choose from, meeting people and making new friends becomes a lot easier! (although it's harder to become bffs and you'll usually find that sticking with your middle school friends is easier). Academics here are top notch

Lowell has provided me with lasting memories and unforgettable friendships. My teachers don't just serve the role of educators, but also mentors and adults whom I can fully entrust. They have high expectations for their students and always go out of their way to get them there. The students are supportive and friendly. The high stress and exclusivity of Lowell really binds the students to form a solid community. However on the downfall, the highly competitive environment often pushes students to breaking points. I have had moments where it felt as if I wouldn't be able to make it through. It is difficult to put so many students together who share a common end goal and expect that there wouldn't be competition. The environment pushes you to go out of your comfort zone in order to put yourself on an equal playing zone as everyone else. Despite this, I think this makes Lowell students unique in a sense that we are more determined and committed to achieving our goals.

There were both pros and cons to this school. The pros are that the environment here is very open and respectful. During my four years here, I've never heard or seen any prejudice, fights or forms of hatred towards any group. The students here are very friendly and helpful. It's a caring environment. On the other hand, it's extremely competitive here. Students will go beyond their abilities to achieve an A in everything and take a huge load of AP courses. It's scary how students will straight out complain about receiving a B+ or even just an A-. Because of this, there's a ton of peer pressure in succeeding in academics, which is what made me stress out and dislike my time spent there. If I had the chance to go back in time, I would have chosen to go to another school instead. The competition here was way too much for me to handle.
