This is a miserable excuse for a school. The marquee foreshadowed the year to come with the word "teacher" misspelled as "thetcher" the week before school started. When brought to the attention of the staff they blamed the mistake on some youth vandals. (Which must have been bent on chaos, as it was locked under glass and 10ft about the ground.) My child who was in gifted classes was neglected and I watched as his test scores plummeted. They took zero accountability for their poor quality of education, disorganized staff and inappropriate judgmental attitudes, which more often than not, left our family in great stress. Their only saving grace was the teacher my son finally ended up with. Everything from drop-off zones, parent conferences, special activities and education was an absolute chaotic disaster. This school would have been more successful had they allowed the children to run it themselves. Their vice-principal has left now, and my prayers are with the school she is now at. She was an alarmist that neither understood nor cared about special Ed children or families. This school will rob your children of any quality education and leave your family a troubled mess.
Linder has grown leaps an bounds over the last five years. Its teachers and administrators truely put children first.
I think the school is over crowded and is too small.The kids can't even have a normal track-n-field day, they call it fitness day. In my opinion they should be able to take track-n-field to the park like some other schools do
I know the last review about this school was posted almost 3 years ago....I am very sad to report that nothing has changed! Aside from the comment of 'catering to poor kids'(which is an irrelavant comment)....It is true that only a handful of parents are truly interested in their children's education! This is really sad considering that this is a very over populated school. The negatives in my own children's experience at this school have by far out-weighed the positive! Administrators need to start holding parents way more accountable than they do, not to mention, that the parents are not the only ones who aren't interested in the children's education! All Administratos are doing are going hand in hand with parents to set these children up for complete failure. As for my own children.....they will not be returning Linder!
A poor school catering to poor kids whose parents aren't interested in their kids education. The only quality teacher left.
