My daughter graduated at Lowell. While attending Lowell High School in SF, during examination days when she comes home she was very upset coz' her classmates were cheating during examination and they speak on their own language. The teachers were aware but did not care. I hope they change their system so students will learn the proper way.

Lowell is prided on its outstanding academic reputation, and indeed the students are mostly very smart, highly driven, and disciplined. There is a great selection of classes, especially APs, and kids get to choose their class times and teachers and build their own schedule. The modular system (instead of periods, the day is divided into 20 20-minute mods) can be a bit confusing, but students understand it well. The teaching staff is mediocre: there are some amazing and inspirational teachers, but just as many (if not more) horrible teachers who are either uncredentialed or tenured, and literally make life a living hell. The school's facilities are unacceptable: it is dirty, roofs leak, lockers are dented and broken-down, bathroom stall doors are missing, and many classes take place in "temporary" trailers. Also, the school is built for 1600 but currently has over 2400 enrolled. They seem to be making progress, however, for recently a new science wing was built that is very nice. Lowell is definitely not the most fun or social school, but it does prepare kids well for college - and makes them appreciate any school they might attend afterwards.

Pros: rigorous academics, free

Cons: facilities, many teachers, class size, atmosphere

Located near the Presidio, this public school is known for its academics and even sports activities. It sends a lot of their graduates to good schools like UC Berkeley but I've also known people who had 4.0s in middle school but flunked at Lowell. This school is only good for those who are ready and willing to take on the challenges.

Lowell High School can be extremely overrated at times. Although there are only a few outstanding teachers, the high school prepares you for college. It allows students to choose their own class schedules, which is great prep for college.

PROS: choose own classes
CONS: teachers

way too many smart people at this school. if you want your child's fragile self esteem to be ruined at a place where everyone is so bright that your child will feel like an average person, then send him or here here. if you want them to grow up in a better enviroment, make sure they dont come here.

Lowell has a pretigous name and history behind it. The grades are all earned (mostly), and the teahcers for the most part actually care about you and your success in school as well as getting you off to a good start in life. But the buildings are getting old and in some ways it feels really ghetto becasue of all the wear and tear on the school. Don't despair though since lately there has been a lot of conrtuction work making new buildings and renovating old ones to fit the name of Lowell.

PROS: good school
CONS: old worn down buildings

Lowell is the top public high school in san francisco. It is a bif school with many basketball courts, buildings, and teachers. the teachers there are great. Although some of them are strict, the provide a good amount of work so students can remain focus and prepare for college. This school has fantastic sport teams and a lot of clubs.
