Linn-Mar Community School District Reviews

I enjoyed my time at Linn-Mar High School because I was very involved with the activities they had to offer, in particular the cheerleading squad. I was involved in cheer all four years of my high school experience and I made memories that have stayed with me and my fellow squad members. The academics did well with preparing me for college and I am happy with the majority of the teachers I had and even made a relationship with a teacher that had an amazing impact on my life. On the other hand, I was disappointed in the lack of emphasis on the importance of Diversity and Inclusion. There were few or if any classes that taught to support the diversity in school, future workplaces or just in general. I am hoping as we enter a more progressive and evolving society this becomes implemented in different class settings and normalized throughout curriculum.

Linn-Mar provides a great, welcoming atmosphere for all students. The sports programs may not be the best, but we have truly amazing fine arts, music, and theatre programs that any student should be proud of. Go Lions!
Great school with great opportunities. Strong academics and opportunities for the kids to get involved in many different things. The district is not the smartest with how they spend their money, and have focused more on cosmetic appearance than making the school more spacious and efficient for the growing numbers in students. Sports can be a hit or miss on success, but the music department is one of the best in the state, even one of the best in the Midwest but very often gets overlooked. I overall had a great experience at Linn-Mar and would strongly recommend it to anyone moving to the Marion/Cedar Rapids area.
