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.

Classical High School is a very large, diverse school. The teachers are friendly and willing to help any student. Jupiter makes it easy to access grades, assignments, and message teachers. The students are inclusive and there will always be somebody to talk to. The school has many resources such as guidance, the social worker, the Bright program, and the nurses office. Yet not everything is perfect. The bells don’t work properly, the intercom can’t properly be heard in the small cafeteria, we have a vaping issue which closes all the bathrooms, and not all the teachers equally enforce the rules.
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!
