About Lynbrook

Who we are...

The values held by Lynbrook’s community—commitment to family, involvement in the schools, a belief in the importance of education, and high academic expectations—are directly responsible for the school’s excellent standing. For its part, Lynbrook works hard to meet the needs of its community, and the success of the school’s efforts is evident in the serene, safe and attractive campus; sophisticated approach to technology; collaborative faculty and staff; and extensive co-curricular and extra-curricular programs. Lynbrook’s API (926 in 2009) is one of the highest in the state of California. The school has been named a California Distinguished School five times, most recently in 2007, and in 2008 Lynbrook was one of 54 high schools nationwide to be recognized as a No Child Left Behind National Blue Ribbon School. In addition to these significant benchmarks of excellence, our students, teachers and programs have earned a vast range of awards and recognitions at the local, state and national level. Such excellence is enabled by the strong partnerships between the school, district, students, parents, community and an enthusiastic, caring and highly dedicated staff strongly committed to meeting the community’s expectations.

Though Lynbrook, like many California high schools, serves a diverse population, the school’s racial composition is as follows: 77% Asian, 19% White, and 4% “other” (representing Hispanic, African American, Filipino, Pacific Islander, and Native American students). Lynbrook’s Asian population has increased by 15 percentage points since 2000, while its White population has declined by 14 percentage points. All other populations have remained relatively stable.

Lynbrook High School boasts outstanding co-curricular and extra-curricular programs, including state and national award-winning music, drama, dance, and speech and mathematics competition teams. An extensive athletic program includes 44 competition teams. Link Crew, an award-winning peer mentoring program, a staff-run Student Assistance Team, and more than 70 student-run clubs and organizations give all students an opportunity to be connected with Lynbrook High and provide additional support for students and parents. The Associated Student Body sponsors weekly activities during lunch and brunch, spirit weeks, a traditional Homecoming Week, and school dances and evening events.

Counseling Support Staff

The Fremont Union High School District strives to provide all students with high quality personal, vocational, and academic guidance. At Lynbrook High School students prepare for post high school success by engaging in career assessments and exploration activities through the Career Center and Library/Media Center, and plan appropriate post-secondary education with the help of four assistant principals, three guidance counselors, and Career Center and Library staff. Lynbrook High School’s ratio of students per “Counselor” = 598:1 but with the additional help of the assistant principals, the ratio becomes = 256:1. Support staff also includes 1 one Library Media Teacher, two  Psychologists, and 40 fulltime and 36 part-time paraprofessional/clerical employees.

A district wide college faire is held each year and Lynbrook offers grade level college information nights for students and their parents. Most materials are translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and/or Spanish; as needed and on-site translators are also provided.

Ongoing intervention programs are provided for students who need them. Special education students are provided with transition plans and specialized work training programs.

Parent Partnerships

There are a variety of ways parents are actively involved in the programs and life at Lynbrook. The School Site Council is a representative body made up of parents, students and staff. It oversees the budgetary expenditures of the School and Library Improvement Plan as well as GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Grant. Parents, students, teachers and support staff make up the Lynbrook Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) and help support and fund many of the programs that benefit students.

To support our English Learners’ families and bilingual parents, the Lynbrook Bilingual Committee works to increase bilingual parent participation in school life. The committee informs bilingual and English Learner (EL) parents about school culture and procedures, as well as facilitates communication between the school and bilingual families. Parents new to the school are offered support in navigating school procedures with one of the mentors.  An English Learners Advisory Council participates at the District level to address the specific educational needs of the EL population.

Parents are also active in many different booster organizations.  The Lynbrook Instrumental Music Booster (LIMB) is the support structure for the Lynbrook Instrumental Music Program:  Orchestra, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Color Guard, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Winter Guard, Winter Percussion, and Percussion Ensemble. Lynbrook affirms the importance of music education and its enhancement of academic performance.

Another large parent organization is the Lynbrook Athletic Boosters. Their work and fundraising are targeted to support the athletic programs. They manage concession stands at sports events and coordinate other fundraisers while working with coaches and the Athletic Directors to support all Viking athletes.  There are many other active parent booster groups that support Lynbrook co-curricular and extra-curricular programs (e.g. Robotics Team, Spirit and the Speech and Debate Team.).
