Lynn Classical High School

Lynn Classical High School is a high school in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts, United States. It is a part of Lynn Public Schools.

The school was once located off of the Lynn Commons, in a building which is now the Fecteau-Leary school. The high school was moved to O'Callaghan Way after the controversial construction of a new facility. The new facility has undergone massive reconstruction after it was discovered the building was literally sinking into the ground.[2] It was a well-known fact that the new Classical was built on a former landfill, yet construction broke ground anyway.[3]

Despite being situated in a decidedly urban environment, Classical has maintained a fairly strong track record, in terms of graduation rates and test scores. The school has been lauded in the past by publications such as U.S. News & World Report.

The school also has a strong athletic tradition, and is the school from which Harry Agganis graduated before becoming a world class athlete. In the school's main foyer, a mural of Agganis greets visitors.

I hurt my hand in the game and was shipped back to Boston for treatment and missed the chance at playing in more games that late September."Bullard played another four season in the Tigers and Milwaukee Braves organizations before leaving baseball in 1958.
