"Outside of class, I was able to expand my horizons through the many opportunities available, from volunteering under various clubs to participating in cultural activities with French Honor Society, while forming friendships every step of the way. My favorite high school memories are comprised of conversations with my lovely teachers, daily greetings with our crossing guard, Coach Tim, and workshops with writers of Lynbrook’s literary magazine, Vertigo. I encourage underclassmen to approach high school with an open mind, and to be genuine and excited about meeting new people, learning and stepping out of their comfort zone."
Jash Gada, Class of 2021
Jash will be attending the University of Southern California, majoring in Biological Sciences
"My advice to incoming freshmen is to be fearless and always seek new opportunities. By embracing this fearlessness, I found myself giving haircuts to the homeless and dissecting hearts in the CardioMed Club. I also never expected to choreograph a dance in high school, but now I will never forget the sensation of standing center stage at Homecoming hearing the crowd’s cheers echo across the quad. Whether you find your calling in arts, business, STEM, or even haircutting, a place like Lynbrook offers a home and family to support you. High school is a time to discover your passions, so step out of your comfort zone, make new friends, explore what’s out there, and be fearless!"
