I had 2 children in the Linn School District and I was very impressed with the way my children were treated by the staff. My children were underachievers and by the time they moved from the school district, they were overachievers. I credit that to the encouraging nature the staff carries.

Very pleased. Dedicated and knowledgeable staff, but generally underfunded school district...school board needs work, but high school is excellent!
