Lynn Classical High School is a high school in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts. The school was once located off of the Lynn Commons, which building 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 had to undergo massive reconstruction after it was discovered the building was literally sinking into the ground. It was a well-known fact that the new Classical was built on a former landfill, yet construction broke ground anyway.

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 blossoming into the world class athlete he became. In the main foyer, a mural of Agganis greets visitors to the school.

Lynn Classical is the rival school to Lynn English High School, located on the other side of Lynn, MA.
