This school district does not cater to Special Ed. students!!!!! All they do is single out struggling ADHD kids, ruin their self esteem and run parents crazy causing you to pull any children with disabilities out of the school. They don't want to fool with them. It's ridiculous. The school should be sued for the way they treat kids and parents!

We moved from the city so our daughter could be raised in a small town. So many snotty people here!!! We ended up transferring her to a private school. Lots of petty people trying to impress others. Don't move here if you are not a great athlete or have family that is well known here. Yes, there's lots of "pride"...but you won't be included if you don't fit the "Lindale mold".

Amazing school district! I have 3 children going through the system...we are unmatched! I'm not sure what the desegregating comment was about...we have only 1 campus for almost all grades! We just added a second elementary campus last year, and they are mirror schools! lol It has beaten Highland Park in academic competitions, and continue to get great ratings!

I read the previous reviews of Lindale Highschool on this website, and I would like to clear some things up. One, no person has been followed home due to the lack of safety on the school's part. All of our buses go directly to a child's house and rights to the front of the schools. The children in the younger schools can't even leave the school by themselves after school hours, so following and stalking does not happen such ways. Only highschool and junior high kids could be followed, and that is only once they leave the campus-not caused by a lack of effort on the school's part. One person said Lindale has a racist attidute towards the non-white students. This simply is not true. As a student here myself, I feel that every student is treated fairly. Yes, the dresscode is a little strict, but that only improves the qaulity of the school. Students here present themselves decently and proffesionaly. I would agree that if your child has many piercy, crazy hair, or an odd style that this is not the school for you. I am running out of review space, so I am going to conclude this. Lindale is an excelent school with great teachers. We have a little something for every student here.

My daughter hated this school. A lot of the students are snobs and will insult middle class students. They gave my daughter a ticket just for not getting her AR book read, the breakfast and lunch prices are expensive,more than an average school. cant wait to relocate

I am so excited about our exemplary rating. Lindale is a great place to teach. Teachers love the students and the community. We have great support from parents and administration. It is a wonderful school. Janice Caldwell, Debate coach, UIL Coordinator

I think the education provided is great, but I'm concerned about the current financial issues and how they will affect the students

Quality of education is good. Poor discipline and high use of drugs among students for a small town school. Good availability of extracurricular activities.

Lindale High School is an academic oasis in East Texas. Far and away the best high school in the area. Expectations for excellence are exceptionally high given the demographic. Student conduct is strictly monitored and misbehavior of any kind is simply not tolerated. A dress code is strictly enforced. If your child is a 'free spirit', don't come here because they'll be miserable. The debate team won the state tournament last year and the school does very well in all UIL academic events. Sports programs are good, but the only exceptionally good program is tennis for boys and girls alike.

Lindale has a wonderful high school. The principals, teachers, and support staff are all very supportive. I almost put my daughter in private school, and I'm very glad that I chose Lindale instead. It offers so many opportunities for students to excel.

Posted July 7, 2004

They allow students who don't dress a certain way to be picked on. The white students can get away with bullying just about anyone. I think that because there is less than 10% of African-Americans, they are treated like they are invisible. I seriously think the school district needs to work on desegregating these schools because as we all know, it is no longer 1950.
