Throughout my 4 years at Lynden High School, the teachers didn't give up on me! They pushed me beyond what I thought I could, and encouraged me to take classes I didn't know I'd be able to do.

I also learned more than just math, science, english, and all of the other academics. I had learned how to treat people as a friend. The teachers respected students that respected them, and I learned thay from them.

Lynden High School definitely taught me a lot, and I can't wait to see what becomes of it in the future, and I can't thank all of Lynden Public for what it taught me.
I am a junior at Lynden High School. The campus is small, and the classes are around 25 students each. I enjoy the AP classes that are offered and the teachers do their best to prepare us for college. There are several clubs to choose from as well as a well rounded athletic program. Overall I am very satisfied with the High School.
