I'm still not impressed with this school. I'm very disappointed with the principal and the counselors of this school. I stand by my first review of this school. A good administrative office can make or break your school. I was told by a counselor when I called they were too busy to return my phone calls. The principal has yet to return my phone calls or see my from last year. I put myself of the VIPS List, I haven't received a phone call yet. LBUSD is really bad as well. I keep filling out the form the school board sends me and every year nothing. ABC school district hear I come.

I am a student here at Lindsey, and it has been an AMAZING experience. The environment is very friendly and the teachers are always there helping you. The best thing about this school is that it's an International Baccalaureate which means you learn new and different stuff followed by the IB learner's profile. Also, do fun activities throughout the year so you don't want to miss out!

I am a parent of a student that attends Perry Lindsey International Studies Magnet School. Knowing that my daughter is always happy to wake up in the morning to get to school, I assume that all of the happenings that occur there are very appropriate, positive, and of course, educational. This school strives hard to help their students success great achievements which is one of the many reasons I look forward to many other upcoming middle schoolers to attend here. I've heard from my nieces, nephews, and kids that Perry Lindsey may not be the best school but it is very great.

I am a teacher at Perry Lindsey International Studies Magnet, as a first year teacher in a Middle School, and I can't believe how wonderful this school is. Our new Principal, Ms. Dunn and all the Administrators, Coaches, Counselors, Teachers, Para-Professionals, Office Staff, Volunteers, Custodians, Plant Manager, Supervision, Parents/Guardians and last but not least, our awesome Falcon Students are so supportive... making my experience so positive. I hope that you will be able to experience the fulfillment of pure joy of walking into our campus everyday. 'This' is why I came into teaching. I love coming to work every single day and I know 2008-2009 will be an outstanding year.
