Lindenhurst Union Free School District Reviews

We moved to this district in order to get out of the terrible Massapequa school district. The teachers and student body were a definite improvement. An unusually high number of the teachers live in the community and are very invested in what they do. I only had a couple of teachers that I genuinely thought shouldn't be teaching (whereas in Massapequa I felt that about half of my teachers). The student body is very diverse economically, but not as much diverse racially: it's mostly white (a lot of immigrants/1st gens from Poland and other Eastern European countries) with a good number of Spanish people as well but very few black folk or Asians. They offer a plethora of extracurricular activities but they aren't all funded very well. Facilities aren't that great, the HS in particular really needs some renovations. Although the classroom teachers are good, the overhead administration is sometimes a little inept. But overall we liked Lindenhurst a lot.

Overall my experience at Lindenhurst was very good. The thing about Lindenhurst is that we are necessarily the nicest town by any means. We don't have the nicest houses, only in certain areas, however our school district catches the eye of many people. It's far from perfect however I truly love it. You will have teachers that will impact your life forever and make you into an educated adult. Although there are some negatives associated with Lindenhurst Schools, In my opinion the positives outweigh them by far.
Lindenhurst Union Free School District was very involved in the processes of making sure students are successful and able to graduate on time, and attend colleges. My one idea of a downfall would be the high school guidance counselors, who were often times misinformed, or just too busy to work with students who were confused about the college application processes.
