Lynwood Senior High School was established in 1974, and since then our school community has been proactive in continuing to respond to the needs of our clientele. We cover a wide spectrum of educational skills that cater for a range of interests and abilities in order to prepare students to meet the challenges of an ever-changing society.

The individuality of each student and teacher is acknowledged and we nurture positive values of tolerance and respect for each other in our multicultural environment. In addition to the social focus, our school caters for students with different educational interests and requirements in order to pursue their careers in life.

We have courses that provide pathways to academic excellence, practical and vocational competence, and an awareness of the importance of physical fitness and good health.

Students graduating from our school are not only well equipped for enrolment in tertiary courses at University or at TAFE, but also for coping with the demands that employment puts upon them if they choose to go out into the world of work.

We encourage open communication in a variety of ways - via monthly newsletters, publications, our website (, student assemblies, school prospectus, meetings with parents and media reports through our community newspaper. We formally acknowledge students at special exhibitions, performances, the Year 12 Graduation ceremony and through our Yearbook.

Students at Lynwood Senior High School are culturally diverse with overseas backgrounds from more than 30 countries. We celebrate our diversity on special occasions such as Harmony week and language week.

Lynwood Senior High School has a number of support staff available to work with students in our care including a Community Nurse, Psychologist, Chaplain, Aboriginal and Islander Education Worker, Community Police Officer and Career and Vocational Education Officer.
