I have worked at this school for 10+ years and have enjoyed it. It is very challenging work. All of the staff is supportive of students and wants them to succeed. We have a lot to offer to students--athletics, clubs, and a nice variety of electives. The administration is excellent and deals with problems swiftly and fairly. I would not have stayed in this school if I felt it were a dangerous place. The person who talked below of expulsions and fights and drugs is wrong. You can check the DOE website for that info.
I was a student here at Lynhurst a few years ago. The school is divded into teams, and people say that it causes kids to gang up, but each team has around 300 students, so how is that possible? Sure, you can hear about a student getting this trouble this day, another cussed at a teacher that day, but isn't that what you hear.. in every typical school of teenagers? The teachers I had had good senses of humor, and even jokes around with students. Of course, then again, there are drama. Fights and arguments. That gets dissolved in about a day and maybe 3 at the most, you know. Teacher DO care and they DO do things about it. Now, don't tell me you've never experienced or been in school drama fights before, because I know you have. Once again, happens everywhere. Because the school is separated into teams, the hallways throughout the whole school are divided too, making memorizing the school easy. I was a top student there, and I must say that the teachers treat everyone the same, top or not. All I have to say that Lynhurst is NOT a bad school, as everyone says it may not be perfect, but nothing is perfect.
This is not a good school. The teachers do their job and are good teachers, but the environment is not good at all. All you hear about or see is fights, drugs, and gangs. The school has teams, which kids use as gangs, and the school has had to be put on lock down several times because classmates were bringing weapons to school because the teams were going to fight. During the last 2 months of the school year, there were fights everyday and at least once a week someone would get expelled. Almost every class period the class would be interrupted because the teacher would have to write someone up or send them to ISS. I have to mention the teacher/student relationships were good, even the teachers still maintained good relationships with the "bad" kids. I'm not trying to bash the community around the school in any way, because I live here and I am a student in Wayne Township, but I think the environment of the school is based off the community and how families are brought up. The school isn't in the best area.
