TYNGSBOROUGH – Superintendent Jill Davis is pleased to share that Greater Lowell Technical High School welcomed accepted ninth-grade students and their families to introduce them to the school and what lies ahead in the fall.
Hundreds of students attended the annual Accepted Ninth Grade Students and Families Night with their parents and families to get to know the school.
The event featured presentations from school administrators and staff, as well as information tables, to help students and families get to know all the programs and opportunities at Greater Lowell Technical High School.
Presentations focused on methods of communication used by the school, including apps and family portals, an introduction to important contacts within the school, and an overview of the school’s core values, including R.E.A.C.H. — Respect, Effort, Accountability, Commitment and Honesty.
An overview of academic and athletic programs, as well as student clubs and organizations was presented.
Incoming student Wilkenia Mejia said she’s interested in the nursing program, but was also impressed that the school has several stores inside it where students can learn marketing and business as well.
Her mother, Mary Mejia, said she encouraged her daughter to consider GLTHS because of the variety of programs it offers and the wide variety of careers the school will help her explore.
Kuntaer Eng of Lowell said she was impressed by the way Greater Lowell Tech enables students to learn about a wide variety of future career paths, and provides numerous post-secondary opportunities for students to prepare themselves for those career paths.
“Attending school here gives students a lot of hands-on experience that helps them figure out what they want to do, and with 23 different programs there are a lot of opportunities,” said Eng, whose daughter Amillyon Peng begins Grade 9 this fall.
Eng said she also appreciates Greater Lowell Tech’s diversity, and the way the school helps students get real world work experience.
Additional programming for incoming first-year students will be held on July 27 and 28. The school will opens its doors for Freshman Welcome Day, which includes tours of the school, team building activities, and discussion of GLTHS core values.
