Bananas dont believe these people. Linton is great lol and they have the wrong info... its 6-8th grade lol.
We have been very happy with Linton - it gets bad press due to the municipality, but the same problems exist in more affluent disctricts - these just don't get the press. Our child is in the gifted program and we have been very happy with the teaching and offerings at Linton.
linton middle school alright but when a student gets in trouble the teachers time and energy is all on that student and the good students are often ignored.also the teachers say when you have a problem come to them well some students do but the teachers dont do anything about it and the students have to deal with the problem themselves which often lead to fighting.lastly the teachers often have attitudes with the students and the students didnt even do anything which makes the students have attitudes. the teachers sometimes say that theres no such thing as a stupid question but they often sy that the students question was stupid
I'm a sixth grader at Linton and Linton is a great school. You shouldn't believe all of the stuff you here about it. So what there are fights sometimes? Kids in every school get into fights? okay well it may not be a perfect school but i've never heard of a school that is. People really need to give Linton a chance. They shouldn't judge by the stuff that they hear.
Please Read! It's the year 2009 i'm currently in the 7th grade and my school is not bad. Every school has problems. Those of you who are saying my school is bad is wrong. I was on the volleyball team and Woodland Hills threw rocks at our bus. So why don't you go to there page in talk about how bad they are and there is not a fight every day sometimes there isn't a fight for six months in a row so please get your facts straiaght before you go and talk about my school!!!!=( love you linton keep on rocking and i get straight A's bout im bad at spelling the teavhers rock on and are enchoraging like i said im bad at spelling but it's not the teacher's fsult
Do not send you child here . There are poor classes and fights almost every and teachers yelling about rude students.
Penn hills is good, don't judge us were just kids. I am a 7th grader-student. Our school is very good. Everyone has faults.
I Think that there is a lack of respect from both teachers and students.At Linton middle school there is a lack of education. the education is often interrupted by disruptive students fighting,talking back,and acting out in the classroom.at my school we have metel detecters in the main enterance that is a helpful thing,but there is not enough time for every student to go through the detecter. parents are not involved in any of the few items that we do. the principal leadership is ok. that is my statement of the school that i will be attending for 6th,7th,8th, and 9th grade. submitted by a current student
I have a 9th grader at Linton. I'm so impressed by the level of teacher involvement at this school. My kid's teachers are in constant contact with parents. They are approachable, and enthusiastic professionals. My kid has learned more than I ever thought possible. I can't wait until my younger child gets up to the school!
I think this school has somethimg very special about it and I konw that anyone who gradurates from there will have a very excellent year in high school
The quality of academics is so poor at Linton, I am so disappointed. I purchased a home here 10 years ago, so my children would have a good education. Boy was I wrong. The teachers do not motivate the students.
no direction. students aren't led to believe that they can be anything, and thus never even try. some strides have been made the last few years, but still a very insubstantial public school. no child left behind means more proficiency, but that is the target. the hallways are thus quite difficult to navigate, often impossible.
Linton does have it's problems, and I agree Penn Hills is changing which means the schools are going to change also.
Yes this school has their problems just like any other school, but this school knows how to handle theirselves. They also have good safety matters and is a good school I am a student who goes there now and am in the 9th grade and I have been there all 4 yrs from 6th to 9th grade and this is my last year there then I go up to the high school. Overall its a good quality school for kids in Penn Hills
This school does have problems, as do many other schools. The teachers care and are respectful. Parents need to get tuned in. If your child causes problems at school, address it at home, don't get them a new video game to occupy them instead. If your child is having difficulties with thier academic studies, help them or seek out a tutor. Many teachers are willing to help, ask them respectfully without accusing them of not educating your child. Linton can be a tough place, so is the world. Parents are thier childrens most important advocate, and that doesn't mean that children do no wrong.
This school is out of control. There is no time for learning. It is a matter of just trying to survive. The administration refuses to deal with problem students. They are intimidated by the students and their parents. It is no longer the district that is in control it is the trouble making students and their families.
The discipline problems have a tendency to overshadow the positive academic strides that teachers make. Gifted programs address the needs of gifted students, special ed addresses the needs of special needs students, but when students are exposed to the rudeness of their peers in the activities that are not exclusive, the outcome is destructive. Respect for kids who do their work is non-existent. It just isn't cool to do what the teacher is asking. A student is not respected by the other students if he or she listens respectfully to the teachers.
I think the lack of discipline has greatly affected the teachers' ability to teach their classes. Something needs to be done. Some of my child's classes seem to be nothing more than a waste of her time. I want her to learn, but the environment at Linton does not make that an easy thing to do. I think some of the teachers get frustrated and give up.
