High School courses:
We offer Living Environment and Algebra 1 to some of our 8th graders. Students are recommended for these courses based on certain criteria. Parents and students need to be aware that any course grade and the Regents exam score earned in grade eight is recorded on the high school transcript. To withdraw from a high school level course without having a grade noted on the permanent transcript, students must do so before December 1.

In collaboration with ARISE Child and Family Service, Lyncourt Union Free School District is now offering mental health services for adults. This school-based site will allow adults to access mental health services during school hours at your child’s school.
Services are billed to healthcare insurance providers. Medicaid and many other insurance plans are accepted. Fees vary based on the service provided and the insurance plan. ARISE also offers a sliding fee scale for those who are uninsured.
