Our family moved to the area from out of state and have found Linton Hall School to be an inclusive, welcoming environment. Our child has thrived socially and emotionally, and as an upper school student, is showing an unprecedented enthusiasm for learning. Our child continues to rank in the top 5% nationally on standardized tests, and has meaningful dialogue with engaged, well-qualified, dedicated teachers. If you're looking for a caring environment with smaller classes and academic rigor, come take a tour and experience this gem of a school for yourself.
Linton Hall School is a wonderful school that prepares students for high achievement in high school. The teachers are well-qualified and always have the best interest of the students at heart. My children are learning well and thriving at Linton Hall School! The school has a great curriculum and a beautiful community.
Private School can get away with hiring many unqualified & unlicensed teachers, which is easily seen in the low standardized test scores. Great school for stay at home moms, you can literally stay at the school all day with no questions asked. Grades are assigned not for merit, but to placate the parents. Standardized scores say all. My daughter went from 99th percentile and then to 50% in one year due to an unqualified teacher. My complaints were ignored, and worst of all, my daughter was discriminated against due to my actions.
I am an alumnus of Linton Hall and have so many great memories at this school. The education and values I recieved here have without a doubt made me who am I today. This school and community not only prepares you for high school, it also prepares you for college and beyond. The faculty and staff at Linton Hall truly care about each and every student. The school community is very loving and welcomes you back long after you have graduated 8th grade.
Linton Hall School was 'home' to our family for 14 wonderful years. During this time our children were nurtured academically, socially, and spiritually. The Benedictine traditions, which are the basis for the love and compassion shown to all who pass through Linton Hall's doors, are a wonderful foundation in which to teach academics and life skills. My children left Linton Hall well prepared to excel in high school, and attend academically challenging colleges. Linton Hall is not just a particular teacher, class or program - it is the combined experience of all of these, which develop our children to go out and become successful adults.
Great school. Both of my children will remain at LHS for the full 8 years. The teachers all have their best interests at heart.
I attended Linton Hall School from K - 8 and can honestly say I was thoroughly prepared for high school. The academics at Linton Hall obviously surpass those of the local public schools, as I found the advanced freshman and sophomore classes to be easier than some classes I took at Linton Hall. I loved the personal attention afforded to the students due to the small class size, the sense of community, the involvement with the Sisters and their other ministries, and knowing that there was always someone there who i could turn to if I needed anything.
Linton Hall School has been a wonderful experience for our children. It provides a small family atmosphere where there is no question that the learning process will not be disrupted by bullying, unruly children, etc. They celebrate the children striving for excellence, so that the children want to succeed in the classroom and in their activities and are not made to feel embarrassed by doing well. Additionally, having the sisters involved is a unique element to the school. It provides the children with another perspective of service by seeing the sisters minister to the children and to others in the community who need their help.
I am a student at Linton Hall, and we have a great school community. Linton Hall has a supportive staff, and we are all a family. I play sports for the school, and the coaches are very friendly and have helped me become a better athlete and a better person.
I have four children who attended and graduated from Linton Hall School. They all have very different personalities, but each of them thrived academically and socially in the nurturing environment of Linton Hall. Two have already graduated from high school and college with honors and are now doing well in the work force. The younger two are still in high school where they are at the top of their respective classes. They all have very fond memories of their years at Linton Hall and all of their teachers, some of which are still their "favorite". We as parents, as well as the children, have continued to stay involved with the community we spent so many years a part of. It is like "home" for us.
Linton Hall is an excellent academic school for our kids - it is a place where the kids can learn without disruption. Many kids start high school a grade ahead in reading and math. The school is able to provide challenges to kids who need it in certain subjects while helping others who need support. There is a sense that learning and achievement is something to be celebrated. There are also plenty of options for extracurricular activities that take into account varied interests like athletics, art club, chess club, music, Fife and Drum, etc. Our child has really enjoyed the Fife and Drum corps. He has learned musical skills, performance skills, discipline, and patriotism. They perform at school functions, but they also perform at outside functions sometimes performing for our military veterans. I have been to many events for the Fife and Drum corps, and without fail, the kids are always complimented on their skill, their behavior and for their love of country. All of the students at Linton Hall are a wonderful reflection of the school.
My daughter attended Linton Hall School for 9 years starting in Kindergarten. It was the best investment I could have made in her education. She learned not only the "ABC's" but also a great foundation for her high school education. She learned alot about respect for others and how important it is to be a part of the community. My daughter is now 16 and credits alot of her successes with the foundation Linton Hall provided. She often says she wishes Linton Hall had a high school- she would be first to sign up. Linton Hall is more than a brick and mortar building that provides and education. Linton Hall is a special place where memories, friendships and values are developed and fostered. I made a great decision on my daughter's behalf by sending her to Linton Hall. We will both treasure every minute we walked through the arches.
Linton Hall School provides excellent academics & caters to each child as an individual - they help the advanced child excel & give additional help to those kids who need it. LHS is an amazing "family" environment. The children are taught more than academics - they are taught to love one another & treat everyone with respect. We love the small class sizes & the teachers truly care about our kids & their success. Choosing LHS is one of the BEST decisions we've made!
Linton Hall School is a major treasure in the Northern Virginia area and our family encourages everyone to explore the school and to talk to parents of current students. The academics are top notch, and students are given constant opportunities to develop critical thinking skills. The faculty and staff help shape students in to organized, poised, confident and responsible individuals. The sense of community is another strong element of the school. Parents are engaged and truly work together to develop top-notch events that either raise funds or provide a wonderful opportunity for the school community to get together and enjoy an experience. The Benedictine Sisters are warm, loving and proud of their ministries. LHS works to incorporate the Benedictine principles in to the learning experience so that students understand and experience the Benedictine philosophies. We have thoroughly enjoyed our years at LHS, look forward to the years ahead, and strongly recommend the school!
Linton Hall is a school where everyone knows your child, and protects and guides them as though they were their own. They also strive to bring out the best in each child. We have been at LHS for 6 years and my children are thriving and love school. They are respected and loved by all of the teachers and staff. They are encouraged to be well rounded, and do their best in all aspects of their lives. Academics are strong, and there are plenty of extra-circular activities for the children to participate in. Our kids are not only becoming good students, but good citizens and kind individuals as well.
Linton Hall was the perfect school for my two kids. Both have now graduated and I am so pleased to see how incredibly well prepared they were for High School. Both have commented that they were easily ahead of their peers in virtually all subject areas and they had the background and skills to complete their classwork and projects. I credit the amazing faculty for pushing the kids, but at the same time, knowing each of them and truly caring about how they were doing both inside and outside the classroom. LHS is a uniquely caring place, where everyone is welcome and encouraged to thrive.
Linton Hall is an amazing school! Our children are embraced by the faculty, staff and other parents. They are provided with a traditional faith-based education - we celebrate HOLYDAYS - by teachers who truly care. Parents who've written negative reviews are well known and, in many cases left for reasons unrelated to the quality of the education (e.g., finances). When you invest in the school - being supportive and connected - you will reap the benefits. Have friends at other private schools in the area, we're Linton Hall all the way! An awesome education and children who are polite and well mannered. Lynx Love!
As an out of town Grandparent, I have only visited Linton Hall a few times, but my Granddaughter seems to thrive there and her parents are quite please with the school. That is recommendation enough for me. Dianne Gutting
Linton Hall School is centrally located and students come from many areas as well as different faiths. All are welcome. My kids have done extremely well academically at Linton Hall , making President's Honors and Honor Roll. They have had the opportunity to participate in many family night events within the school -it is a community. The grading system is higher than the public schools so your child has to adjust to the higher expectation and work. Linton Hall is an ideal place for your kids because they aren't packed into a classroom ; they have top notch technology for smart boards and chrome books ( new addition). I agree it takes a village and your students, just like mine are well cared for and fully challenged academically.
I am a graduate of LHS as well as a current parent and staff member. I think that pretty much says it all! I appreciate the love and support offered to both of my children on a daily basis. The faculty and staff has offered so much to my girls - I couldn't imagine not having them in our village because after all, it takes a village!
