LCMS has been a wonderful experience. My son LOVES LOVES LOVES the new stem program and the opportunities to learn new technologies for fun. He has taken a variety of honors and non-honors courses, and he has shown great strides as a learner. The teachers give students a variety of projects rather than just rote learning and the overall spirit is positive. My son is really enjoying this school!

I went here for a while and it was probably the best school by far that I have ever attended after coming here from the East Coast. All allegations of drug use are false as there was only one case and was a small thing a loooong time ago, as those are rumors from kids. By far one of the best public education sites you can send your child to! The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars was because of a few of the staff who need to work on how to make a kid's life not dreary.

Everyone is either saying this school is great and excellent or horrible and miserable when they're only being super positive or super negative. Lindero is a nice welcoming school. Everyone is nice with only a few exceptional mean kids. Once you start the school year, some teachers can pile you with a bunch of homework that has to be done tomorrow. But since these teachers are sometimes clueless, they never get into checking the homework and turning it in which leads to students not doing it because they already know what's going to happen. There aren't that many projects, but when there are it's usually you love it or you hate everyone in your group. Students have been caught smoking but that's the worst it gets. The plus sides are that the kids that attend are actually super nice! The food is great too! The have sponsored people that make lunch worth eating. The classes go by mostly quick too. And most teachers are nice. Once and a while you get a mean teacher that already has the years homework for you picked out. In conclusion, Lindero is an Average school. Your never going to find one that's perfect and this is the closest your going to get. So really, it's your choice. -ST

I went to Lindero from 2010-2013 and it was the best school I ever went to. I will always miss this place.

This school is teaching the kids that they need money for school, and that they need to buy everything for projects and to get good grades. The teachers don't even know the end code, because, when asked about the rules they are breaking they act like they don't know whathat you are talking about. The music program requires the students to buy or rent their own instruments, or they fail the class. This is madness. No one should be taught to be dependant on money. I feel bad for these students in the real world, and I fear their sad oblivion of the truth.

I am a student here in every Honors class available. I think this is a good school, but also a very overrated one. While most of the teachers are very effective, some of them err frequently while teaching. Large amounts of homework are also assigned. The other reviews that complain about drug use are false. No one has sold or used any form of any substance while at school. There are few bullies, but the ones that are there are ignored by some of the aides. Your child will probably enjoy this school.

Over crowded spoiled brats. LVUSD has become more like LAUSD in terms of caring about the students and bullying in many forms goes on here. So glad there are other districts to choose from like Oak Park and schools in Westlake Village.. It was not always like this in this area. Too many people from town moved here thinking it was "better than LAUSD". Well now there really is no difference apart from it being mostly white and no gang problems. There is another form of the gang mentality and it occurs when too much New Money gathers in one place.... It is a true relief to be out of that district all together

I hate this school! This school is full of cliques and all the kids are very rude/mean. There is a lot of drama between students. A lot of the kids do drugs and try to make you feel bad and your self esteem go down the drain. Horrible school. Teachers are pretty good but not the students at all! Take it from me, I've been in this school for years. Don't send your child here, please. They'll be miserable!!

I am a student here and I enjoy going here. I see no racist, fighting, nor bullying. The kids are great. Some of the teachers do tend to give out too much homework and busy work, but they do care and make time to turtor those that need help. I learn a lot and maintain what I have learned and that is the most important aspect for me. Yes, the honor students get to go to Camps, but wouldn't that motive other students to do better?? I would think so. It is nice getting recognition for getting good grades. The administratvie staff do need to relax a little and have more of am open door policy though.

I am a student at LCMS and I loooove the school!!!! The teachers are amazing and dont give out too much homework only the right amount. The new campus looks great which adds another reason why this school is great. The only thing I would change are some of the students behavior....for some not all. Other than that I really recomend this school!!

The administration and policies of this school are harsh and unforgiving. Punishments are severe and are metted out without thought. School trips are only for honor society members while the rest of the students are left behind to watch the buses pull away. If my child has any self esteem left after the misery inflicted by LCMS administrators, it will be a miracle.

This school is barely average! I'm a student here right now in 8th grade and I've been here since 6th grade. I can't believe all the reviews saying its amazing! The kids are a kind of racist, the facility is terrible, and the only thing keeping me here is my friends. The only good thing is that we're moving into a new school:)

Lindero MS is in a great neighborhood with great kids. The administration rests on the work of the smart students and takes all the credit. It's time for the principal and AP to retire and get fresh leadership.

The academisc of this school are of the highest quality. My son was a GATE student who had the best teachers every year. He took part in leadership, the school musical,orchestra, jazz band and the jazz combo, along with special events like the Talent Show. My daughter was in Special Ed, also the best program, and sang in the Choir. Great principal.

Excellent, creative teaching and a strong academic program that attempts to meet the needs of all children make Lindero a wonderful middle school (6-8th grades). Their test scores are consistently among the highest in the state, but more important than that is the enthusiasm of the students on the small but attractive campus, enthusiasm that is maintained by the hardworking staff through a variety of enriching experiences throughout the year. One could hope for smaller class size, but that financial commitment has to come at the state and district level. The parents are supportive and their contributions through various fundraisers allow for the supplemental experiences that would not otherwise be available.

Lindero Canyon Middle School is a great school. Dedicated teaching staff, first class music program, excellent administrators, wonderful programs, involved parents, and great students. The only negitive is the crowded campus. This should improve when YB elementary moves to new site.
