Wow, how much I love this school. I am in 9th grade, and I have less hoemwork than my elementary school. Yes, you read that right. I know APs/Honors might take longer than you think, my the school I want to as a elementary school was Faria. Faria gave too much homework. During COVID-19, I can't say which has more homework, (Faria probably changed as well) so I think Faria still has more.
As a senior at Lynbrook, I have mixed feelings about my experience. I'm ultimately sad to leave, but mostly because I'll miss some wonderful friends, incredible teachers who were there for me when I needed it, and the general "predictability" of high school- I liked the small classes and "small school" environment, and going to a huge public college is a big jump. On the other hand, this is a pressure-cooker environment, many peers can be quite rude, and it is definitely competitive- it was actually difficult for me to even form study groups at Lynbrook, no one ever wanted to work together. The pressure to be "perfect" is real, both academically and extracurricular-wise (plus, all the typical teenage pressures). The principal never seemed very involved directly with students, and the guidance department is mediocre and inflexible. In the end? I'm glad I went to Lynbrook because I did grow a lot here. My advice to incoming freshman? Relax, and don't take too much stress. College applications WILL work out. Find a good group of friends who truly care about you. Watch your mental health. Get to know your teachers and ask them questions- Lynbrook is lucky to have a few truly incredible teachers that I will never forget. Genuinely care about learning- it simply makes high school more fun, and your grades will work out if you just focus on learning and getting excited about the material. Take courses based on your interest (and sometimes, the teachers), and don't worry too much about grades- in every class at Lynbrook, you can do well if you are passionate about the subject, ask for help, and work hard. There is no class that is "too" difficult to the point where you cannot succeed.
This school is beyond horrible. I cant even bring to words how much pain this school has caused me. I can guarantee you a NORMAL child would not be able to survive here. This school is filled with cold, lifeless robots. You would only send your child here if you hate them. Absolutely no one deserves to deal with what this school brings to the table. The environment is absolutely disgusting. If you are thinking of coming here, DONT.
excellent in academic, extracurriculum and community service.
