I graduated from LHS in 2004, so there very well could be changes since then. I really enjoyed my time at LHS. The honors program and core classes were great. They didn't offer a HUGE variety of electives, but the ones they had were good- robotics, pottery, art, speech, drama, etc. They had a great music program and lots of sports. The pep rallies and school spirit were just "so so".
After experiencing life at LHS for 3 years, I can say this school can be a lot better. There are some really good teachers, but it's a shame that they are outnumbered by all the bad ones, especially for the math and Spanish departments! English is okay, depending on your teacher. The Science, Japanese, French, AP, and honors programs are very good on the other hand, but to really get an education, get out and take Running Start. Many kids complain they don't feel they are getting a good education and they don't like the other students that much, so junior and senior year they take Running Start and they like it a lot better than LHS because the teachers actually know what they are doing, and they teach in their specific departments (some teachers at LHS have a degree in one thing and teach another.) The principal is okay, but I don't really like the vice principal, he's not a good vice principal. About half the kids do drugs and more have bad attitudes. Also, the school has all these brick walls and barely any windows, so it's a very dim and prison-like environment. Clubs are good, DECA, FBLA, Key and AERY are the best. Bottom-line, if you value your education, go elsewhere.
i went to lhs for almost 4 years i found the teachers to be great and the studunts to be ok . but there is a big drug problem there. so if you dont want your kids to be around it send them some where else.
As a parent of a student (2006-2010), I found the school to have a handful of brilliant and helpful teachers and counsellors, but too many mediocre ones. The building is poorly maintained and prone to flooding, while the campus is always littered with trash. Enforcement of rules was inconsistent and flaccid; there were no clear expectations or teaching of appropriate deportment. School administration emphasizes sports and extracurriculars, but academic achievement is given short shrift. Most students seemed to be happy with sports, clubs and the social scene, but any parent or student looking for superior academics would be better off attending either of the other high schools in the district or taking advantage of the Running Start (community college) program.
Honestly since my freshman year here at Lindbergh, I've seen a huge change. Our school is built by our students honestly. It's the students that makes our school look good. The teachers are excellent at the same time for guiding us to where we want to go in life. They are very supportive and helpful. Our extra curricular activities are really good and has been improved since my freshman year. Example our DECA program is amazing. Our students actually qualify for state. Lindbergh offers many great AP classes and classes to help you attend the college of your need. Overall all i can say is we've improved and will continue improving.
Lindbergh high school in the renton school district. They teacher have went out of the way to help me succed. When other school didn't.
I go here and this school is terrible. The amount of Racism in the hallways is almost unbearable. The teachers are the worst that i have ever met and they dont care about the students at all.
I am a student at Lindbergh who also believes that this is a great school. They have awesome teachers and they all treat students really well. I am so glad I chose to go here. They make leaning fun!
I graduated from Lindbergh in 2004. They have some great faculty members on staff with a few not so great mixed in. The entire time I was at the school it was being renovated, and living onlt a few blocks away when I drive by it looks like they're still not done. I had good and bad experiences. The bad ones mostly revolving around the way students treat other students at times.
I am a junior at Lindbergh High School and absolutely love it! My whole family has attended LHS and encourage more people to come. I learn something new each day and on the contrary to seniors, I am definitely not looking forward to day I have to leave. The construction is done, and LHS looks better than ever! The teachers are amazing!! They teach me so much and I have never felt that they weren't doing their job, not only are they teachers, they're friends as well. I would highly recommend Lindbergh to anyone!
I've been going here for about 2 years and all I absolutely love LHS. The staff is great they care for their students and me, the academic's are challenging with AP Courses to fill up a schedule, and the sports are top-notch. There are many extracurricular activities that I've enjoyed while at Lindbergh.
My friend's sons/Daughters go the LHS and are happy with it. we are hoping our child has a educational life there.
My son just started at this school and I know its a little to early to rate how well he will be doing.But we took a tour around the school grounds and found it to be rather dirty and not very well kept up. I thinks it says alot about a school's pride by the way it is kept. It is a fairly old school and there is some construction going on. But it looks as tho it is taking a longer time to complete. I will be watching and taking note on how well my son does as well as the upkeep of the school grounds.
As our second child now enters Lindbergh, we've had nothing but positive exp. with the staff. Our kids are challenged academically and in a safe learning environment too.
