The district is pleased to announce that Lynbrook High School was once again recognized by the U.S. News and World Report as one of the 2018 Best High Schools. The high school is ranked No. 809 nationally, up from last year’s ranking of No. 877. The school was also ranked No. 80 within New York State and received a silver medal for performance. 

Each year, the U.S. News evaluates more than 20,500 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Only a select few receive gold, silver and bronze medals for their educational success. Lynbrook High School is among 2,211 schools to receive the silver medal. The schools are ranked by student exam performance data and college readiness level.

Sixty-one percent of Lynbrook High School students are involved in Advanced Placement course work and exams that are offered. These include studies in biology, calculus AB and BC, chemistry, computer science, English language, English literature, environmental science, Italian language, microeconomics, physics 1 and 2, psychology, Spanish language, studio art, U.S. government and politics, U.S. history and world history. 

“Lynbrook High School is proud to be recognized once again by the U.S. News and World Report,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak. “As a district, we strive to give our students the tools to be successful not only in the classroom but beyond graduation. This distinction would not be possible without the dedication and unwavering support of Lynbrook High School’s administrators, teachers and staff.”
