The philosophy of the Lynbrook Guidance Department is to help support students through their academic, career, and personal development. Utilizing individual meetings, classroom presentations, and evening programs, the guidance team works at helping every student meet their individual goals.

Over the four years, these are the services that students and parents will receive. It is very important to update your email address in Family Connection to receive guidance emails and to check the website often for program updates.
