Lynbrook Highschool is a school with great academics and activities. I personally feel like it truly prepared me for college, and I am ready to face all challenges head on. It's extremely easy to get involved at the school since there are various clubs, teams, or even charities you can help out with. You undeniably have the opportunity to find something that interests you and helps you grow as an individual. Every student is extremely friendly and they always look out for one another. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. They are willing to come to school early or stay later in order to help their student with any questions. Overall, I wouldn't want to spend my school days in any other place besides Lynbrook Highschool!

Lynbrook has a very competitive academic environment that can be overwhelming if your time management skills are not that strong. Like many other schools, there are some teachers here that aren't that great at teaching, but in those classes it tends to be okay as long as you study hard on your own. There are also plenty of passionate teachers who really enjoy teaching their subjects, and class is definitely exciting and enjoyable if you get one of them. Students here are not only competitive in academics, but in school spirit as well. Homecoming is a major event here and it is absolutely a blast! If you are looking for a school that challenges you academically and has a spirited student body, this is your school.
I really enjoyed the clear structure for students to follow when choosing courses. In addition, the guidance counselors on campus are some of the best guidance counselors in the high school world. They are very open to hearing student concerns and make their best efforts to resolve issues ASAP.

This school definitely prepared me for college level classes. AP Literature & Writing gave me anxiety everyday, but it improved my SAT writing scores (thanks to my wonderful Lit teachers).

One thing about this school that is not as satisfactory as the academics and the peers on campus would be certain administrative people: such as the attendance clerk and a few Vice Principals. A few teachers don't teach the class well, which seriously should change. Other than these (very) few individuals, Lynbrook is amazing!

I love you Lynbrook, I will miss you!
