when do charter buses come before education? they just pass students on rather they are ready for the next grade. i fell like it would be safe to say 1/3 of the students passed on are not ready for the next grade. if your child is a special needs child this is not the school to enroll them in. the majority of the staff (mostly teachers have an i do not want to be here mood. it rubs off on the kids.i understand a 3 month paid vacation must be nice oh and the other breaks, but teaching is one of the jobs that if it is not your passion you need to find a new job. if your family was born and raised in linden you child has a chance of being treated more fairly or how you would expect your own child to be at any other school. and that is rubbing off on the students as well as the staffs don't want to be here attitude...and again i say mostly the teachers. i think this school would be a lot better if they were to pay closer attention to who they hire as far as how they teach and their attitude about being there.

My grandchildren attend both the elementary and jr. high schools and we are very pleased with all aspects of the school, administration and teachers. They came from a school that only cared about TAKS scores and not our children.

This school only cares about the Funding they are getting from their After school program.I have a problem with most of the staff. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone!

I rated this school before. I wanted to add a comment about the school's being 'recognized' in reading and overall performance. Yes, it's an 'exemplary' rated school. As a parent, I will say it's because the children are drilled in TAAS/TAKS preparation to the extent that they know everything on the test before they take it. That doesn't mean they know these things. There is so much testing preparation being done, that last year, many of the teachers ended up teaching 12 weeks of curriculum in 6 weeks. Parents are currently trying to remedy the situation. We strongly believe the principal is only concerned about how she rates as a principal, by getting these 'exemplary' ratings. Many parents are outraged. We are tired of teaching our kids how to do their homework!
