I'm a former student of this school. I was one of few minorities while attending. There is blatant favoritism towards those who have the appropriate surname (i.e., specific Dutch families) by some of the teachers, the senior leadership and by the worst offenders, the athletic coaches. Hispanics, East Indians and Native Americans were treated poorly during my time there, most often by the ignorant, delusional students that seemed to think there were cowboys. Students need to seek out additional opportunities on their own (e.g. running start, exchange programs, etc.). In addition, their is a handful of male teachers that I observed during my time there making inappropriate comments towards female students and acting inappropriately. Many of the teaching staff completed online masters through University of Phoenix. I made my way to a prestigious university, completed graduate and professional education, and now make a splendid six figure salary with top-tier benefits to care for my family as a health care provider. There is no way in my lifetime will I ever recommend this school to anyone. I give this school absolutely no credit for my success.

I was a former student and would like to say while there were amazing teachers, I did not appreciate the support staff giving up on its students from time to time. For example, principle Alexander told my mother that I'll have to deliver papers and guidance councilor mentioned that someone has to pick up the garbage when my mother tried to get me back into school after difficult time in my life. Now for the first time, I was offered a six figured position supporting global enterprises, proactively assessing risk then providing results in presentation to various CEOs, CIOs and directors largest companies in the world. I really wish my school had not given up on me as it took a long time to realize I did what I've accomplished with hard work despite my own criticism resulting from high school where they made it clear that I will not amount to anything. I was fortunate that after Lynden High school, I was met great mentors that believed in me and allowed me to accomplish so much with honesty and integrity.
