My school isn't nearly as bad as everyone thinks, yeah there's gangs, and fights, but what high school doesn't have that type of stuff? The students here are all amazing, and we treat each other like a family. MHS, YCHS, RVHS, and WHS are no better than us, yeah they have more money and maybe even a nicer campus but that shouldn't make them better. It's not the students, teachers or staff's fault we've got such a bad rep, people talk and they always will. I just know that Lindhurst is amazing and I wouldn't have chosen to go to a different school. Their staff is really nice, yeah there's a few rude teachers but every school has that. All of the teachers I've had, pushed me to do my best. It's true, the students need to want to succeed we're not all future dropouts, some of us have a plan, and want to be something in life, we can't help where we were raised. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. Basically the only thing I'd have to complain about is the sports, the coaching isn't the best, but we've got the talent, and allot of it. Don't underestimate the underdog.

I've read all of the reviews for this school. What I can say is that the student apathy is real and I have noticed a few teachers who seemed to negate discipline in the classroom. However, the vast majority of the teachers and staff do care for the future of the students they teach. But they can only help if the students seek it. Being a student at Lindhurst I can tell you much about the apathy in the classroom. Many of the students fail to regard school as a top priority but as they mature from freshmen to seniors they eventually realize just how important school is. Regarding classwork, it is easy when compared to other campuses due to the apathy. But it's a different story when referring to the AP classes. Lindhirst provides the most AP classes in the MJUS District and the teachers are very involved with the students who decide to undertake such an endeavor. Our school does have problems, due to it's ailments of student apathy, limited funding, lack of parent involvement, and constant criticism by other school districts . But overall, it's just a good school doing the best it can to get it's students ready for the real world.

I've had two children attend this school and graduate. If you want to call it that. The kids don't care about their education and it seems to me that the teachers do not either. I came from the Bay Area where our schools had agreements with the local colleges to accommodate students with a drive to excel. My kids were both told that they would not be in certain AP classes or advanced classes because there were not enough students to justify a class. Talk about pathetic.

I just graduated from this school and all I can say is that it is a horrible place. First off, it's academics are very low quality. 90 percent of the time teachers lower their standards and make class way too easy due to the vast majority of the students being slackers. A 4.0 means nothing if you don't have the TEST SCORES to back it up. The majority of students also have VERY low standards and have no idea whatsoever on what they're going to do with their lives. If that did learn anything after transitioning into high school it was to "drink, smoke, and party" every weekend. Those were the buzzing conversations among most students during class. The number of AP classes is very low and last year, they tried to scare us all out of taking the AP test so the school wouldn't have to pay for it.

This school is the best High School ever. The students and the teachers connect very well. Also, when one fails to connect with each other, they don't just shun others away for that particular reasons. They actually put their differences aside and are able to work as a team. Even though the Football team didn't win, they are the best High School team ever. I wish other rivals were as competitive and hard workers like ours. I hope for the best in this school.

Im a student at Lindhurst high school, 4.0 student and have perfect attendance. Im glad i go here because it is such a great school,so much involvement rallies,fun and so many great classes to offer. Maybe our school is considered bad but by who?Ones that haven't experienced what we have to offer? I know that we have a great athletic program and we have been rated most students attending the 'big' colleges in our district. This is one fascinating school with great diversity. Im caucasion but here there's asians,mexicans,caucasion, african american and it is so great to have friends of different ethnicity. We are extremely lucky.

I think the school has very few teachers who are actually good. I can think of 4 teachers off the top of my head who are actually there for the students. I think the staff especially in the office is really rude. and I think that they do not give enough of the students credit for what they do.I had a math teacher no names mentioned tell my son that he will never amount to anythingnd I think that it was wrong for him to tell him this especially when my son isnt origionally from the town of olivehurst and has not been broguht up like most of the people there. I think there needs to be a lot of changes for the better for it to be a great school.
