Lowell is a very advanced and privileged school. It is a safe place that encourages students and helps them become successful in their futures. The school offers a lot of advanced course work that other schools may not have.

The superintendent, against the wishes of the teachers, took away the weighted grade average of the honor clases, making it possible for student that majors in woodcraft to have a higher grade point average than the student who majors in science. Check out the stats for the management of the revenue. The school board works for her, not the other way around.
