Welcome to Lynn Classical High School
This school year will be my eighth year as Principal at Lynn Classical High School. I started my teaching career as a Special Education Teacher in 1976. I have been at Lynn Classical since 1981. I also served as a Guidance Counselor, Vice Principal and Girls Basketball coach.
Our administrative team, teachers and support staff are very committed to meeting the needs of all students. We hope that your son or daughter has a most positive academic and social experience while at this school. To achieve this goal we need the support from parents and guardians to reinforce the importance of each and every grade during high school. Students will have classwork, homework, tests, quizzes, and other assignments. To be successful students must be committed. College acceptances are very competitive and the first quarter grade freshman year is just as important as any grade. Our grade point average is calculated each quarter.
Attendance is very important. We ask that you join the goal to decrease the amount of unexcused absences. We also want to improve on our tardy and dismissal rate. Please do not schedule any appointments which allows students to miss class time unless it is absolutely necessary. Each absence from a class can negatively impact learning. Last year over 90 percent of the students looked at their grades and assignments several times a week on the Jupiter online gradebook. We need to improve on the 30 percent rate of parental involvement with this academic tool.
Social emotional well-being is very important for academic success. Our Vice Principals, Guidance Counselors, Social Worker, Adjustment Counselor, and School nurses are available to assist students and parents. In addition Lynn Community Health Center has a school based office available for students. Please let us know if we can be of any help.
