This school is in a blue collar neighborhood with a lot of drug activity. The teachers are not too concerned with kids academic advancement but more concerned with socializing and pretend to do their jobs. Drugs are all over the school. I would not want my kids going here
My daughter graduated in 2011 and my son will in 2014. I have found this High School to be an inspiration that other districts should model themselves upon. Teachers are involved and really seem to care about the students. They have a zero tolerance policy on bullying, which is outstanding. Not every kid can be the jock or the cheerleader and, in this school, nobody is made to feel less than equal because their strengths may lie elsewhere. My kids have both had issues with their grades that were entirely due to their own laziness and the teachers and guidance counselors were in almost daily contact with me, until the problems were resolved. My daughter is now in her 4th semester of college and has a 4.0. I think that pretty much says it all, when a kid is made to do a 360 from almost failing to graduating with good grades to excelling in college. That tells you what having great teachers, an involved district and parental monitoring can do to encourage a child onto the right path. Great music & art programs, lots of clubs & activities, the student plays are Broadway quality. I plan to attend the shows long after my son graduates (neither of my children were in theater, btw).
My daughter is graduating Lindenhurst High School next year with 95+ grade average. She is been doing great in the school. I am very happy with the school and they don't allow bullying.
I used this site when I decided I'd be OK with moving to here from Massapequa. I'm currently a sophomore here (I did 9th here, too)...and I think LHS is very OVERRATED on this site. i kinda wanna laugh when I read some of these reviews. The teachers are great, true. however, the district seems to push sports. I found out that the HS sports are getting new uniforms (school color change), even though they cut a lot of academic things this year. makes no sense to me. Other negatives: the halls are packed, the school is pretty drug-tolerant, and there are threats pretty often ,...on the positive side, this school is diverse and the students are nice...pequa was very undiverse and the students were brats. The school has a pool. The Drama Club's great. I really LIKE this school district better than pequa., but the academic quality is lower. I really wish we had a bigger Science Olympiad team...but looks like the team is gonna get bigger :). if you like sports you'll like this school. The schools special ed is supposedly good. You might not like this school if you're academic-oriented. Oh and the cheerleading team placed 11th in the NATION. How is that not a highlight?!?
Great school! The principle has a great relationship with his students & parents. Most teachers are invested in the students. Only problem is the guidance dept. Not good with parental involvement or preparing students & parents for the process of getting ready for college. I recieved more information from other parents. When I approached the director fo guidance for the district, she was condecending & defensive & not helpful. I have 3 students there & they are happy there.
The Lindenhurst School System is one of the Best Kept SECRETS on Long Island. The Schools ( K - thru High School ) are Above Standard.They Produce an Excellent Product - Their Students are Very Productive in Life. Both my son and daughter are sucessful..The Lindenhurst School System forms a bond with the Parents, to monitor the childs progress.Clean and Maintained buildings, School Sports and after school activities are at a high level. All this from a Middle Class Base.
They have so many exciting non traditional classes, like Marine Biology.
As a parent, I was skeptical when my son entered the school, however, the entire faculty proved to be outstanding and I am happy to report that he is now a senior and well on his path to college. I now look forward to sending my younger child to this school.
Excellent school. Just graduated myself and after graduation this school prepared me for college and the real world. They also have just about every club and sports team you could ask for in a school. All the teachers and staff are willing to work with the students and the school offers a variety of different classes to choose from. I would recomment this school to anyone.
As a parent and former student I want to say Lindenhurst High school is a wonderful school. Both the teachers and parents are very involved and caring.
Lindenhurst High school has excellent academic programs. There is trouble in the school rather often. Its not a fantasy school, its just another high school on the map that is giving kids the education they need to succeed. But not school is perfect. Luckily their music department pulls through. Even with a lack of funding they are doing excellent. The concerts and the plays are fabulous. A+ for the Music and Art Departments.
academenics are good music and art theres a good amount and parents are involved for the most part
This school is great it is really like a fantasy school there is never any trouble and the kids are great and respectfull this is and excellence high school.
This school is one of the best schools on Long Island. The teachers are very experienced, certified, many have come from this town and stayed and are giving back the same great education that they had when they attended. I highly recommend it as a safe and progressive school for your children to attend.
This is a very good school. Everything from the academic programs to the sports activities are very well done. Our son is in the ninth grade and he loves going to the school. There is so much for the kids to do. Also there is very little trouble.
The curriculum at this school is outstanding as are the choices for AP classes for the brainiac student. The instructors teaching these AP classes have a strong interest in seeing the student do well and offer whatever assistance necessary.
This school beats any school I have ever been to. The teachers really care about the students!
This is one of the best public schools on Long Island in NY that I have seen. I attended the school for four years. The teachers are some of the best I have met, the number and quality of extracurricular activities is extravagent, and the overall quality of the school is great.
