My experience at Lynn Classical high school was definitively a good one. Besides it going by fast, high school is something Ill never forget. It helped me make so many life long friends that for sure Ill still talk to in the future. Classical was also great with their sports teams, they really got their things together and the kids did as well to be great! But, on the other hand one thing I'd change at classical is the learning environment. No one really learns people just relax in school and let the days just drag by. Teachers being lazy as well. There's lots of amazing teachers at classical don't get me wrong but some others just t care, and just want their end of the week paycheck.

Being part of Lynn classical high school has taught me many lessons. I can say that the teachers are awesome and dedicated to their career, even though there were some teachers that had a difficult time explaining a lesson. Throughout my four years, I learned that with patience and practice you can achieve your goals. Like my teachers always said, "Try harder you got this!" I will never forget my experiences at Lynn Classical forever in my heart!
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Classical. Not only have I made friends with similar beliefs and interests as me, but I've also connected with teachers both old and new that have played a large role in preparing me for higher education in college. Many teachers come from different places with differing educational backgrounds, so they take their time to give knowledge that's useful for both inside and outside of the classroom. However, this school does lack when it comes to test scores and has a smaller range of AP and IB classes. Sometimes internet connectivity is a bit spotty, which makes classwork and research difficult. All in all, this school is a good place to be and I'll be proud to graduate within the next few months.
