Guidance Team

The philosophy of the Lynbrook Guidance Department is to help support students through their academic, career and personal development. Utilizing individual meetings, classroom presentations and evening programs, the guidance team works at helping every student meet their individual goals.

Over the four years of high school, students and parents will receive the following services:

  • Academic monitoring and transcript review;
  • Individual student and parent appointments;
  • Senior intervention programs (when appropriate); and
  • College and career planning assistance.

It is important to keep your contact information and email address updated in Family Connection to receive guidance emails and to check the website often for program updates.

Students may drop-in during breaks and after school to see a Counselor without an appointment. Oftentimes, there are many students waiting so students have the option to complete an online request and the Counselor will contact the students. Parents/Guardians may email their student's Counselor for an appointment.
