It encourages theft and drug use. I can't say anything positive about this school. It will make you worse off.

Amount of homework: Disagree

Kids come out of that school completely behind the rest of society. No one from my family even graduated, they all dropped out.

I would sooner take a belt sander to my genitals than to send my child to Line Mountain High School. Many of the students that go there are junkies, miscreants, teenage-parents and burnouts. Sending your child there will literally make them a dumber person. Having had numerous family members go there, their intelligence and vocabulary were literally a decade behind. The school needs to have a stronger community that reaches their kids.

Line Mountain School District is the worst combination of bullying, unqualified teachers and those simply willing to tuck their heads into the sand and pretend there is nothing wrong. The student body is comprised of aggressive, neanderthal-like, ignorant, unteachable, delinquents. Their vicious acts of physical violence go unchecked by an administration that defends the behavior by saying, "Not everyone is going to like you." to the bullied student. I would strongly caution any parent who is considering moving to this area and sending their child to Line Mountain to run not walk in the other direction. There is not a single redeeming quality to this sewer of human misery!

I am a new student at Line Mountain. I have been bullied so much since coming here, both physically and verbally. The classes are really easy though. The stuff we are learning I did three years ago in my old school. I hope I'll be ready for college after wasting time here.

line mountain school district cares about sports more than their academics, although it has gotten better in the last two years thanks to recent changes inadministration. For years a previous principal had been telling the art programs that they would probably be discontinued. The school board wanted to get rid of all the art and music programs a couple years back its absurd, now what has more to do with education, athletics or academically credited art programs. Also the fairness of previous administration was questioned many students were recieving unfair treatment compared to others to the point that a previous principal was not supposed to dicipline because their fairness was questionable. Line Mountain has a great academic program and academically driven students advance and progress smoothly and far in life, but don't they anywhere? but check the school websight it says on the very top 'where fairness is not always equal' or somthing to

While it's size limits the diversity of its class selection, the teachers at Line Mountain truly go out of their way to help their students succeed . Line Mountain is, however, plagued by problems of discipline and respect. Teachers and administrators feel more comfortable telling alumni to remove their hats within the building than telling a student to stop sending text messages or using foul language during class, and disciplinary actions taken by the school are, often, ineffective for repeat offenders. In their effort to be compassionate, sometimes the school lets itself be taken advantage of by its students. Athletically, Line Mountain strives to acknowledge all student athletes and promote school pride and unity through supporting all extracurricular activities. Ultimately, Line Mountain is a great place for motivated students with a desire to succeed, but not for those with disciplinary issues.
