I am currently attending this High School and am a senior. I'd have to say there are maybe four or five teachers that are absolutely amazing, but the rest are just at par with my expectations. The campus is sparsely landscaped and on an unrelated note, the majority of students have delusions of adequacy. But overall, Linden High School is much like a community and or family in which we all tolerate each other. The sports programs are good; soccer is probably the best sport, except for baseball who are equally good in their division. Basketball struggles but shows promise.

I am an exchange student from china and I attended LHS for one year. Undoubtedly this school year in this school has totally changed my life. You will immediately fall in love with this school when every day you are warmly greeted by students around and patiently taught by teachers. Because it is a small scale school, so everyone knows everyone so it is like a big family. The impressing drama and sports programs are also the reason that you should undoubtedly choose Linden High. Everything there assisted me to thrive. I love you Linden!

My child goes to Linden Elementary, and I love the High School because it does things to help the Younger generation as well as the kids at there school. If they win this I would like them to use the money on the School Track so it would not only benefit the High School but it would also benefit the Elementary School and the community. I like to use the track to walk.

I have taught at LHS for a few years now. In these years, I have seen a few dramatic changes for the better. The administration is very supportive of their quality teachers. In years past, there have been a few less than perfect teachers and administrators. Thankfully these things have a way of working themselves out. Both the site and district leadership are very supportive of the arts and extra-curricular programs. The school culture embraces individuals and emphasizes student success, regardless of the learning environment. The schools are great and the community is very supportive of students and the learning process.

I am currently a student at Linden High and I can truely say I love it. I moved here in the 4th grade and was immediatly accepted. I feel this school really helps people thrive and accomplish there goals in life. As a freshman we were taught how important education really is and how school can be fun. As I read some of the reviews I noticed people stating that you must be from Linden or have some kind of Italian back ground to fit in, and i have neither and fit in perfectly fine. Linden is a little school causing you to know everyone, but this is something i love about it. Every school function is fun because of this fact and I have to disagree with this school not being a good place to take your children, i plan to raise mine here someday.

I attended LHS through out my high school years. I now attend a four year university and am doing well having had my educational foundation formed in the Linden Unified educational system. Although LHS is not very diversed the faculty there teaches acceptance of diverisity and students new to the area have many oppurtunites to fit in and excel in this small town atmosphere!

I am currently a teacher at Linden High School. The students who fit in and are related to administration and board embers are treated well. Those who do not fit in are ignored, treated unfairly, and neglected as far as supplies, qualified teachers, and materials. This will be my last year teaching here since the administration does not see a problem with discrimination and favoritism. I would think twice about sending my child here if they did not row up here and you are not an affluent family of Anglo ancestry. Otherwise it is a very tough ad isolating place for people who do not fit that description.

I am a current student at Linden High. It was hard being a new student in linden, when i came to linden in the 7th grade, but even though the students here will sometimes push away outsiders, overall i've seen a wide acceptance of new students. And the teachers here are awesome, they really try their best to help students feel more at ease. One of the best teachers that really lives up to this is Mr. Souza. He is really dedicated, even coming back from heart surgery to help us students, in this type of dedication, he's not alone. There are plenty of amazing teachers, administrators and staff that give all the students the tools to succeed. Ive seen my friends graduate and get acceped to UC Davis, Chico, UC Santa Barbra, etc... And its amazing to see a school so united.

As a former student that transferred from another school I was able to compare both schools (former school was new & at least triple amount of alumni) and confirm that Linden did indeed provide a better education. Teachers were more friendly and Managing Staff was reachable. I had no qualms about the school; in fact I enjoyed my two years that I attended. I loved the small school feel & liked that the teacher/student ratio was smaller than at other schools. I'm glad that my nieces & nephews also attend Linden Unified Schools because I know they are getting a great education.

Like any school, Linden has its good and bad teachers. I can bash Linden all day, but in all honesty I think its better then many other schools I've visited. There might not be a real connection with kids but at least the drama is on the low side and for someone who can find the motivation to learn on their own, this is a good school.

Posted November 2, 2006

I am a former student at Linden High and had a extremely hard time trying to fit in, the diversity there is practically nonexistent and most students there have grown up around each other. I am from a low income family and that just singled me out even more at this school. Sadly I dropped out because of the loneliness and depression I felt from going to school. I was a straight A student before moving to Linden, and I've always loved learning, but feeling like a complete outcast really does something to your determination. Children that aren't like everyone else will really stand out at this school and I'd suggest sending them to a more diverse school.

The material covered is great, we always get to the chapter in the book that we are required to reach. But not all the students understand the material that was covered. It seems that some teachers expect us to already know the material being covered and forget that the reason we are taking thier class is to learn about the material. Not all the teachers are like that, their are teachers who really do care and do all they can to help you succeed. Now for sports. Linden has always suffered in sports. I saw this all four years. I was a tri-athlete, and every season the one thing that slowed our teams down and in some cases prevented us from succeeding was the athletic department.

This school really helped to mold my daughter into a bright young woman. While at times the content of some classes seemed a little below her ability for the most part the quality of the education was great. The sense of community that LHS thrives on really gives our school a unique touch.

Linden High School has some of the greatest teachers that I have ever seen. I know of 2 that my child has told me about. One is Mr. Souza who is the ACE, Band and Chorale teacher andis one of the greatest music teachers I've ever seen in high schools. Another is Mrs. Hoffman who is the Avid, Geometry and Algebra 2 teacher and she has helped my child understand math and get better gradually. LHS has great teachers, principles, vice principles, athletic directors and coaches. They are helpful to all students.

My two children graduated from Linden High. Both went on to four year schools, earned their degrees in four years and both have excellent, well-paying careers. In other words, Linden High can and does provide an excellent preparation for univeristy work. The problem is that there are far too many students at Linden who seem to not care in spite of the best efforts of the instructional staff. I applaud Linden's way of helping those that choose to be helped.

Three of my children attend Linden High. From what they tell me, The principal hides away and has almost no contact with students. Many teachers could care less about the students. Once we get a good teacher they only stick around for awhile. The school board does little as possible to support our band and other art programs. Students are not listened to, and their ideas/concerns are usually ignored.

This school's educational program is a joke. The teachers here may explain the information, but they do not teach it. Teachers come and go every couple of years and so they don't understand the principles on how to teach these students.

I do not understand how a negative API could be generated from the statistics which were all positive, albeit less than the hoped for numbers. A few years ago we had a president who spoke of 'Voodoo Economics.' It would seem that we have 'Voodoo statistics' here.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
