Lyndhurst High School Reviews
It’s sad that I’m leaving Lyndhurst High School this year because there were great moments. The memories I had with the teachers because most of them cared about me and my education. Most of the teachers at our high school enjoy their job and love to teach the class. Not teach the subject but actually allow us to engage with the topic. They would also give us breaks from all the work and just talk with us like we were their friends, not just some students they were assigned to teach that year. The school is also really accepting of the LGBTQ+ community and advocates for our Gay Straight Alliance Club. The food was not the great part at all because it was not as diverse for everyone. As a Muslim I found it challenging to find food in the cafeteria and had to buy my lunch from a vending machine we, thankfully, have. Most of the meals were made from pig. It was only ham sandwich’s and hamburgers made with bacon.
As a parent I can say that this school is filled with very good teachers, compassionate students and teachers and a great administration. Children with special needs never felt neglected or isolated, I saw them integrate to rest of the group. My son was captain of the swim team and he enjoyed the camaraderie and effort of all the students that participated. He is sad to leave it now that he is graduating in June. It was a great experience for my son and also a good experience as a parent. Teachers always kept the parents informed about all the progress that our children made. I would definitively recommend this school to my friends.
My experience at Lyndhurst High School has allowed me to grow into the woman I am. As a senior in high school, college is a major focus of mine, and I feel that all of my teachers have dedicated their time to helping me find my path. The teachers are understanding and comforting but remain rigorous to ensure we do not become lazy or slack. If I could change one thing about our school it would be an increase in diversity. I am a very open-minded person with a love for other cultures and learning about the lives of others. LHS has a predominately white population and I feel that with more diversity, the school would become even more influential and inviting for future generations.
