Merit-based admissions matter

The Friends of Lowell Foundation promotes educational opportunity and high standards in public instruction by protecting Lowell High School in San Francisco and advocating for merit-based admissions in public magnet high schools across the U.S., K-8 improvements, STEM instruction, and Advanced Placement funding.



The Friends of Lowell Foundation has led the effort on the West Coast to preserve meritocracy at San Francisco’s public alternative magnet school Lowell High School.  With other organizations, FOLF has worked to elevate the national effort to preserve merit admissions in public high schools across the United States.
