Lyndhurst School District Reviews

Lyndhurst's school district provides a lot of support in your future plans, but it lacks in certain areas to help you actually achieve them. The teachers are super compassionate and willing to help you as much they can both inside and outside of class, but sometimes that assistance can overpower a student's own ability and ultimately keep them from pushing themselves to their highest capacity. While the high school does offer a decent range in classes and subjects, I would like to see teachers pushing students to be more successful on their own rather than holding their hand through every step of the way.

The teachers are generally nice but of coarse, like most schools, will have some bad eggs. The main problem here is the drug/juuling use. While my school tried to fix the problem it just left many people upset. After lunch, I would go into the bathroom and see groups of people smoking. They have basic classes that will get the job done but nothing notable. I believe the Honors/AP classes are very useful and I am actually learning in these classes. My most favorite thing about Lyndhurst Highschool is all the clubs that are offered. There is a wide variety and many of them add a boost to your resume. They allowed me to have experiences that I would otherwise never have done if not for joining the club. Overall this is an average school, I believe if you worked hard enough and really put your mind to it you can get into an excellent college by attending Lyndhurst School District.
The biggest problem with this school system is corruption and nepotism. Funds continually mismanaged (most recent..."lost" $3.8 MILLION). As a result of this mismanagement there will now be staff cuts leading to insufficient staffing and virtual gutting of support services. Nepotism is HORRIBLE, because of this and financial issues, the State is investigating. Some administrators are highly unprofessional. The amount of honors students who need to take remedial courses in college is frightening. The student body is made up of mostly decent kids, but to say there is no bullying or cliques would be lying. Some strong points - the music department has wonderful programs and a very supportive staff, sadly it looks like this will be negatively impacted too for no good reason. There are reasons many in our town send their children to private or alternate schools. Do your research before sending your kids here. If you're moving and looking for a good school system - go elsewhere.
