In 1948, Lynn’s newly designated third secondary school, at the time referred to as the Lynn Vocational High School, held its first graduation ceremony, at which a class of 70 seniors were awarded diplomas by Mayor Stuart A. Tarr. Ralph W. Babb was the school's first principal, and he would remain principal until his retirement in 1950.
Michael C. O'Donnell would then hold the principal/director spot until 1971, when he retired as well.
In 1953, during that year's graduation ceremony, it was announced that the school would rename itself to "Lynn Trade High". This rename would be effective immediately upon its announcement, and the 37-member graduating class of '53 would be its first under the new name.
In 1971, Lynn Trade High relocated to 80 Neptune Boulevard, hired James A. Pelley as its new principal, and renamed itself once again, this time to its current name.
The first two graduation commencement exercises, 1948/49, were held in the Classical High School auditorium; in 1950 they were held at the E. J. Harrington School’s auditorium until 1971; the first graduation program at the new Lynn Vocational Technical Institute was conducted in 1972 when diplomas were presented to 104 graduates in the school cafetorium.

Essex County is a county in the northeastern part of the U.S. state of Massachusetts. As of the 2010 census, the total population was 743,159, making it the third-most populous county in the state. It is part of the Greater Boston area (the Boston–Cambridge–Newton, MA–NH Metropolitan Statistical Area). The largest city in Essex County is Lynn. The county was named after the English county of Essex.
It has two traditional county seats: Salem and Lawrence. Prior to the dissolution of the county government in 1999, Salem had jurisdiction over the Southern Essex District, and Lawrence had jurisdiction over the Northern Essex District, but currently these cities do not function as seats of government. However, the county and the districts remain as administrative regions recognized by various governmental agencies, which gathered vital statistics or disposed of judicial case loads under these geographic subdivisions, and are required to keep the records based on them. The county has been designated the Essex National Heritage Area by the National Park Service.List of high schools in Massachusetts
