    As an alumni of Lynwood I am very proud to go gone graduated and survived there. I graduated in 92'; riots earthquakes fights uncaring teachers and a few extremely devoted teachers gave to way to an incredible amounts of students there.I was involved in the ROTC program there. I loved it a program that was wroth it's valvue in gold. I don't know if it is still in place there. I hope it is it's a program that teaches discipline respect for yourself and others. I am so proud to have had the oppurtunity of graduating at Lynwood High School. For the students and staff please don't tarnish our name of Knights. We always fight and NEVER GIVE UP!!!!

I always get excited to do to school because I know I will learn something new. I beleive that the school can accomplish all their objectives because I see the hard work the principal does for us the students so we can be better.YES WE CAN!!!LHS=))

    I started my first day as a Tenth grader today at Lynwood High. Its was a really long day today with everything out of order! Students were missing classes some were lost and others were just ditching. But I know after everything gets in place it's going to be a great year. I met my teachers for this year and they look like they are very strict but nice so I know I won't be scared to ask a question on something I don't understand. With my experiences from freshman year I believe that LHS is a great school just that people were looking at the teachers that didn't care or didn't have expectations for their students and didn't look at the wonderful teachers at LHS. Instead of talking about all the great things about LHS people automatically talk about the bad things about LHS. Well Lets Go Knights~!

    As an alumni of Lynwood HS and now an employee I have seen a drastic change. The principal is rarely around and involved in the student activities. It seems like the assistant principals attempt to be more involved. There is lack of security and respect between teachers & students. The school can definetly use some work if my child ever decided to go to my Alma Mater I would have to refuse!

    I am currently going to lynwood high school and I am in the tenth grade. The only thing that is bad in lynwood high are the diciplinaries. The security is bad but in class wise tehy have the best. They have many electives to choose from and many ways to prepare you for college. I love their AFUEL classes. I wouldnt really recommend this school but its still an average school. I still love lynwood high because we have lots of pride. Go Knights!

    I attended Lynwood High School I was prepared to graduate. I was prepared to start down the path of adulthood. I am currently taking classes to become a nurse I would not have been prepared if I had not taken biology anatomy and physiology and the medical courses offered at Lynwood High school. All students need to take charge of thier educational goals and focus on thier choices.- Diana

    My daughter attended LHS and she was better prepared for college than a lot of the peers she attends college with. I was able to communicate with her teachers as often as needed and received plenty of support from them. I can only say that sometimes we need to be more involved in our kids schools to be able to accomplish our educational goals. My experience with 4 different school districts has made me appreciate what Lynwood High School has to offer. Lynwood has a good educational plan with emphasis and focus on the road to college.

    The communication between parent and teacher is non-existent...I have had 7 children come thru that school and by the grace of god and my perseverance they made it...Now don't get me wrong there are still some good teachers there that really care and will work with you and you child but they all should be like that they should all care... -Kws-

    I don't believe that they provide parents and students with all the tools needed to insure that the child is getting a good education.

    I have attended many parent/student functions and have found that no matter where you put your child you have to be involved. Lynwood High provides good security for a safe learning environment. The pricipal is very involved with the students. The classes are structured and challenging.

    This school is so bad it's embarrasing. It has some great teachers but most of them could care less about the students and thats the truth. I have learned much from very few of these teachers and if they were all as good it would make a huge difference.

    I am very disappointed that some teachers do not return phone calls. I am aware that Lynwood schools do not have a very strong parent involvement you would think teachers would be delighted to call the few that show concern. I have made several requests to the same teachers at least two months have past and still no response. My child would definitely do better if there was more communication between myself and her teachers.
