The Lowell School Committee voted to open thirty (30) seats in grade 9-12 at Lowell High School to School Choice participants for the 2018-2019 school year. Per School Choice regulations, these seats are available to any Massachusetts student from outside of Lowell who applies within the designated time frame detailed below.
There are a number of factors that impact School Choice applications. It is important to note that School Choice candidates are not eligible to apply for the Latin Lyceum for the 2018-2019 school year as the exam window has passed. Additionally, transportation is not provided for School Choice students. For a more complete explanation of School Choice parameters, please refer to the School Choice FAQs.
