Linder Elementary School5

I absolutely love this school. When we first move to this neighborhood we were concern about all the bad reviews it had. We talked to many people around here and they said the old school principal was what they didn't like. But when our son started school the principal had been replaced and im glad he did. because the current principal is great. She really gets involved and ever since she came here she has improved everything. We are actually trying to buy the home where we lie now just so that our son can attend the school here. I definitely recommend it.
After giving this school 5 years too many I have finally decided to switch schools for my children's educational sake. You can volunteer and be involved but it doesn't make this a success for everyone (and I have done both). Out of 5 years there have been only two teachers worth having and they were truly wonderful. Unfortunately there are not enough to go around at Linder. If your child is an above average student or even has the potential to be please for their sake go somewhere else or they will fall through the cracks due to teachers having to put so much focus on getting a certain target group of students to meet State Testing Standards.
This is a lower income public school with great teachers and staff. Diverse group of students, majority hispanic and caucasion. All of my children have attended Linder and as long as a parent is active in their education they will suceed with high scores.
