Not a fan of this school. It's overly strict. It's more like a prison and run like a concentration camp of some sort. They encourage students to fail and almost force them out to make a name for themselves. They care very little for the average child. They want them gone and not associated with the school. ...  Read more

My daughter attended her sophmore year at Lynn English High. My daughter absolutely hated this school. She was constantly talked about and had several rumors made up of her. The majority of the students that go there are very rude and ghetto. She is very shy and keeps to herself so I couldn't understand ...  Read more

Although some bullying does occur, the administration usually puts an end to it. There is a zero tolerance at Lynn English. The principal and vice principals are very nice and are very strict. The academics are amazing. The honors classes for students who really want to push themselves are held at high ...  Read more

As soon as he started school Iasked for some kind of counseling, like three or four times and never got the help and to make things worse, ...  Read more

Having worked in a number of low income schools over my 38 year teaching /administrating career, and being retired from LEHS, I can vouch for this appropriate rating. It is well deserved. The administrators, teaching staff, support staff and extracurricular staff all work together as a team. Principal ...  Read more

I went to this school from 04-08. I couldn't be happier, its an amazing high school, the teachers are great, the staffs are nice, the only person i think the whole school doesn't appreciate, its the Vice-Principal, Mr. Strangie. Besides that the school is amazing.

Comparing to many of the ordinary public high schools of the nation, I can unquestionably utter that Lynn English is one of the best public schools that currently exists. I have attended it as a sophomore and I can attest to its unrivaled excellence.

I don't think this school is the best. There are not many electives and there are many cliques. I wouldn't recommend it.
