    My child was a freshman last year. Before this school his grades have always been outstanding. He will not be returning to this school for his next year. If he does he will be so far behind that there will be no way for him to catch up. Lynnwood High is telling students and parents that if their students are having a hard time Scriber Lake High is a good alternative. However, it has a rating of 2 on the Great Schools website. It just makes me wonder why would they suggest such a school that has such a low rating.

    Great school! Very positive experience. There are some amazing and supportive teachers at this school. High school is what YOU make of it.

    I am currently a student at Lynnwood High School and have been for the past 2 years. In these past 2 years I have maintained a decent GPA and yet I don't feel like I have learned anything at all. The teachers are really just there to tell you what to do and to hand out work, when it comes to explaining the material the teacher doesn't teach you, the paper the teacher HANDS OUT teaches you. The administration is very unreasonable as well. The disciplinary, principal, and vice principial are especially hard to reason with and force unnecessary restrictions towards the students.

    Lynnwood is amazing. I am a senior here, and I have moved nine times and I have been to seven different schools, and this is the one, that really pushed me to reach my full potential. If it wasn't for my teachers, I would still be the wallflower who didn't know how to interact with anyone. But now, I am confident, I am in the drama class, I am part of the student body, and I am a leader. The teachers at Lynnwood, really care about the students, and they make it so that they can recall any student by their name and what they do at the school. They ask me how I am, what I have going on, and what I am interested in. My fellow students are involved in so much, and we are all so different. Lynnwood, is extremely awesome, and it means a lot to me.

    I really like this school, it has improved a lot since we have a better building. In fact it is the best building on the west coast now because it's a green school. Also it has a lot of races and that's important because students are more open minded. There are a lot of really great teachers and all are nice. there are also a lot of clubs students can join or make up.

    This school doesn't care about education. New digs doesn't make you a better teacher or administrator. Ship 'em in Ship 'em out is the status quo. Wake up!

    This school really has nothing good about it. The teachers have a lack of experience gained at College & Universities. They really dont care about your learning and well being at the school. You pretty much need to figure out everything yourself, the teachers are there to give out the work. I really didnt like the school. Its not one of those friendly happy neighborhood schools. No one really cares about your learning as well as you. Wouldnt reccommend going to Lynnwood to anyone. I think most of the kids at the school will agree with me.

    I'm a former student. Principle Leadership. Nonexistent. I've been at this school for less than a year, and I can tell you that out of the three high schools I've attended (Yokosuka, Snohomish, and this one) This was certainly the worst. For one, the lack of parental incentive to participate in their child's activities. The drama program there is actually fantastic. They set up more than the usual '2 shows' a year. When I was there we put up about 5 productions. Best times of my life. There are a few note worthy teachers out there, but not enough to justify going to this school. It's not only lackluster, but broken. Your child will be better somewhere else, trust me.

    As a junior at LHS, I have seen how students and staff have tried to change the overall image of the high school. It may not have the best reputation in the area but that doesn't there aren't students and teachers trying to fix it. The teachers are engaging and try their best to do everything they can to help students. The building has poor facilities but that will be changing in the very near future with a new building on the horizon. Parent involvement is relatively high in the school. There are multiple parents who volunteer their time tutoring students or doing other things around the school. The Booster Club is also fantastic about helping out kids who may need scholarships for athletic and other fees. Overall, it is a school on the rebound, just look at the test scores.

    I'm a student currently going there and hating it. I know I'm not supposed to hate but I couldn't find a better word. The academic I just started getting into but seems okay. They have music like guitar which I'm taking now. Sports, just the basic ones. Extracurricular activities yeah the have them but not many and not much of a variety. Parent involvement? None probably because they barely have any staff involvement. Like there isn't any supervision outside and there are no boundaries. Anything can happen then. Everyone talks on their cell phone. Overcrowded everywhere especially lunch. They're behind in technology. I saw a computer class, they have old computers. All the teachers' laptops don't work that well where they can actually use it. Very behind in stuff too like they just got planners.

    The extracurricular activities keep the children involved with school. Lacking in parent and teacher support and the quality of academic programs could be better.

    Just what I've know since my daughter starting going to Lynnwood High, I would rate the school very low as well as the district. Instead of trying to help the students early on when they are not performing well (starting at 9th grade), this school and district just passing them to the next grade (now a Junior) and when they become Seniors and possibly have turned 18 they do not have enough credits to graduate which then gives a student a chance to drop out. Parents have no rights as far as having their child held back until they either get it or realize they will not go forward to the next grade. When did the district start telling parents what they can and can't do with their child's education.
