Linden Public School District Reviews
I like that they are on top of all activities and are involved in all additions to the districts. They give teachers enough resources to help their students with the right curriculum. Since we live in the Northeast, we have a few snow storms each winter and they make the right calls when it comes to cancelling school for the safety of the students. I however think that they need to focus more on college readiness and offer more classes that helps students get ready for real life problems. They need to give their students a little more freedom and hear feedback from the students to see what they think could help the schools.
They're unorganized. This school is perfect if you are looking in for diversity. This school provides a lot of diversity. Clubs at LHS consist of wanting to make everyone feel as if they are apart of something. Getting everyone involved is a major struggle. Teachers don't listen to students ideas and also don't provide any thoughts that might interest the students of the school. Our safety policy isn't at its best rate either. Side doors are constantly open for other students who are coming from outside. This can put us students at risk of a stranger walking in.
Many students, like me, attend to linden public schools, but after my experience of being with them since kindergarten, as you grow within this community you learn a lot. One of the many things that I have learned from being an African American is that just because there is diversity around me doesn’t mean that their isn’t any racistism either. Many of the teachers pick on you because your race and culture. I am an honors students, and I strive to do my best, and I come across situations where teacher and students question my race because I am in honors. They expected me to be in the mentally challenged classes. The honors class that I am currently in only consists of one other African-american and we are challenged the most. For example, on test, we can have the same exact answer as someone else yet we still got the question wrong.
