A STRONG Reopening Year for Lynbrook

After a year and a half in remote learning, returning to campus has been a glorious challenge.

Time away gave us time to reflect. When we returned, we had the opportunity to approach things with new eyes.

--- Our ASB Leaders. This year they made changes that fostered inclusivity and promoted camaraderie instead of competition.

-- Our teachers worked together to integrate the best of the strategies they learned in online learning with the best strategies of in-person learning. This was important as we are now 1:1 with devices.

-- Our teachers focused efforts to restructure, refine and recalibrate their courses in light of the academic and social-emotional challenges of students.

-- Our athletics programs reopened to unparalleled success! Last year while we were in remote learning, our girls’ varsity basketball team won the CCS Championship.

This year our Boys’ Varsity Basketball team won the CCS Championship for the first time in our 50-year history and competed as far as the quarter-finals in the Northern California state tournament. Lynbrook is league champion in Swimming & Diving, Cross Country, Boys Golf, Varsity Girls Track, and Boys’ Water Polo. We sent 11 wrestlers on to CCS competition, and JV Girls Soccer won their division.

It was a great year for Viking Athletics.

In the Arts,-- our Chamber Orchestra was invited to perform at the All-State Conference (CASMEC)

  • 15 students-- 2022 All-State Band and Orchestra
  • 11 students -- 2022 Santa Clara County Honor Band
  • 4 students-- Regional State Honor Choir
  • 16 students-- All State Honor Choir
  • 4 students- All-National Honor Choir

Annually, U.S. News examines 24,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. This year, Lynbrook High School is ranked #101. In addition to traditional high schools, the rankings encompass charter; magnet; and science, technology, engineering, and math-focused schools. Though Lynbrook is a comprehensive, neighborhood high school, we are the #13 in the nation in STEM.

This year of the 50th Anniversary of Title IX, I am proud to say that Lynbrook has been recognized with an AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award.

4 budding scientists were named among the top 300 Regneron Scholars.

Junior, Eric Shen, will be one of six students to represent the USA at the 63rd IMO 2022 - International Mathematical Olympiad in Oslo, Norway in July.

Recently, the Lynbrook Science Bowl team won the national competition in Washington D.C. 

Lynbrook students and staff have returned strong, hopeful and with a deep sense of purpose. I am honored to serve this outstanding community.
