Our Mission

Lynden High School's Mission is to challenge all students to strive for excellence. Our emphasis is on learning as a lifelong process and on mastery of the essential academic learning requirements. We use diverse learning experiences to provide an environment that is positive, supportive, and stimulating, and encourages the value of self and others.
