• CityLab High School Community,

    I am excited and honored to be the Principal at CityLab High School. I look forward to an awesome year of learning for our students. This is my 5th year at CityLab.

    I have been a proud Principal in Dallas Independent School District for 9 years and bring 17 years of administrative experience with me. My most recent  principalship was at Maya Angelou High School, that serves as a safe place for pregnant teens as they transition into motherhood and Multiple Careers Center in Dallas ISD which offers technical job training to differently-abled high school students as well as life skills training to 18+ year-old adults seeking more independence. We became a Personalized Learning school under my leadership and provided a powerful blended learning experience for our students.

    We will continue to the excellent work the teachers at CityLab implemented last year with Design Thinking and Project Based Learning. My vision is to continue to establish a campus-and-beyond community that develops students who value problem solving and are ambitious to achieve their very best for the betterment of their community. One of the fundamental purposes of CityLab High School is to affect change by using the city of Dallas as an extension of the traditional classroom.

    I look forward to an outstanding year!

    Lynn Smith, Principal
