Lowell High is the local high school in downtown Lowell. The high school serves from 9th to 12th grade students. They focus on preparing their students for college and life after high school. The high school offers an array of courses and an accelerated program for students collaborating with Middlesex Community College.
In an effort to strengthen the partnership, AmeriCorps awarded Middlesex Community College a year-long grant to collaborate with Lowell public schools to design projects to meet student learning outcomes. In addition, MCC received an AmeriCorps Campus Compact Vista to help identify needs within the schools. Conversations occurred with school personnel about ways to support MCC and LPS students' academic success. From these conversations, many areas for collaboration were identified such as mentoring, tutoring in STEM, supporting the arts, college readiness activities or events, and afterschool assistance.
