High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Lowell High School is a top high school situated in the United States. Lowell High School is a public magnet school in San Francisco. Jay Mathews Challenge Index as the 26 high school of the United States ranked it in 2006. The school is located north of Lake Merced, between San Francisco's Parkside and Sunset Districts. The campus is located next to Lakeshore Elementary School, a public school, and St. Stephen School, a private K-8 school.

Lowell High School is the oldest public high school west of the Mississippi and traces its beginnings to 1856 as the Union Grammar School. In 1894, chiefly Pelham W. Ames, a member of the school board and ardent admirer of James Russell Lowell, renamed the school to honor the distinguished poet, James Russell Lowell. The school relocated in January 1913 to an entire city block on Hayes Street between Ashbury and Masonic.

Lowell is one of the two public schools in the San Francisco Unified School District the other being School of the Arts that is permitted to admit only students who meet special admission requirements. The Lowell admission process is based on a combination of standardized test scores, GPA, a writing sample, and extracurricular activities.
Lowell's academic success is due largely to this process, and at present, Lowell High School is ranked 3rd in terms of test scores among the Top 10 Public Schools in California, behind Gretchen Whitney High School and Oxford Academy. The school's graduation rate is nearly 100 percent and is the largest feeder school to the University of California system, in particular to the Berkeley and Davis campuses.
