Lowell has a lot of potential. They have some very dedicated and loyal staff who strive to have our children become successful and contributing members of society, however there is only so much they can do. There needs to be a behavioral counselor installed to promote appropriate actions for students with destructive, inappropriate and distracting behavior. There is very little parental/community involvement. There seems to be no recourse for the staff to correct the blatant disrespect for basic rules. I think it boils down to being in a poor community and these kids have a lot more going on in their lives that seems to be more important than rising above their circumstances. The fault lies with the parents/guardians, not the school itself, but there should be a behavioral coach or counselor to give students the tools to cope with their outside distractions and allow them to focus on bettering themselves and improving their environment.
Sadly this school suffers from poor leadership from the principal Doreen Herrick. She is inexperienced, rude and unprofessional to not only parents, but students, teachers and staff. The school has a large Hispanic population yet Doreen speaks no Spanish. Let's hope MPS wakes up and gets someone in the principal position who puts the students first and treats parents, students, teachers and staff with respect.
Now, now.....funny how my kids have not had any problems.....like they say....your kids are who you make them. Lowell teachers and staff are awesome! This coming from someone with three kids in school!!!!
This school is including teachers and students are a sorry excuse for an educational institute. My step daughter has been in this school for two years. She is in the 4th grade and continues to struggle. Her teacher this year was pregnant and took maternity leave for three months in that timetable step daughter has had over five sub teachers. She is having a very difficult time with the transitions. Also bullying is a major issue, my daughter is have white and half Hispanic and 90% of the kids in her class are Hispanic and she is constantly teased cuz she doesn't speak Spanish. Bullying is verbal and physical and every time it is brought up nothing is done about it. Please if you have an option don't put your child in this school.
