Lowell was a rollercoaster ride, and I've definitely left a more educated and mature person.

Love that there are so many student organizations and opportunities for extracurricular activities. Don't like how there is little opportunity for involvement in tech.

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
