Welcome to Lynbrook High School
Before attending Lynbrook High School, all new students must establish residency through the district office. Once a student establishes residency, the family receives information from Lynbrook High School regarding course selection. For incoming 9th grade families, we know coming to high school can be a bit anxiety-provoking and you may have a number of questions. While course selection may seem like a complicated process with lots of choices, it is not. We will help you and your student build the 9th grade schedule in a step-by-step method during the 8th Grade Course Selection Night in February. In addition, we offer this list, though not exhaustive, of Frequently Asked Questions.
8th Grade Course Selection Nights
Course selection occurs in February. Students and parents/guardians will be provided a brief overview of our courses and an opportunity to ask questions. Please review courses available prior to the evening using the online course description guide. It is very important that both students and parents attend the information meeting!
