Map It!


Since its opening in 1974, Lynnhaven Middle School?home of the Bluefish?has served its community with great distinction in both academic and extracurricular successes. The school currently serves approximately 1,200 students in the sixth through eighth grades across more than 141,000 square feet of space. Lynnhaven Middle School employs a school-within-a-school concept, interdisciplinary teaming, and an extensive range of exploratory courses to compliment core area instruction in English, math, science and social studies. The school implemented programs focusing on seventh and eighth grade block scheduling and emotional intelligence in 1999, and its intervention reading program is a positive feature of the school?s programming. Upon completion of their studies at Lynnhaven, graduating eighth grade students attend First Colonial and Cox High Schools or one of the many magnet programs offered by various high schools in Virginia Beach. The 140,000-square-foot facility sits on a 25-acre site just off Old Donation Parkway and in close proximity to Virginia Beach General Hospital. The mission statement, as set forth in the school?s strategic plan, is "Student Success," simply put. In 2010, with assistance from an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, the school division worked with energy performance contractor Noresco to replace the facility?s lighting with more energy-efficient fixtures, install lighting occupancy sensors, and implement water conservation measures.
