Lynden School District Reviews

I've been a student in the Lynden School District my entire life. It's a smaller school district which allows it to be more personal/ one on one with the students. Almost all of the teachers are very nice and helpful, but every grade there is at least one teacher that doesn't teach, they just read from a textbook. At the high school there is a huge amount of clubs to choose from which is great because every student is able to feel like they have a place they belong to. The middle school on the other hand only has a couple. They mainly focus on sports at the middle school rather than the arts or sciences. When it comes to diversity, the high school teachers are all white except for the Spanish teacher. So not too good there. Staff is almost always friendly and ready to help when a student needs it and ready to listen if a student feels they need someone to talk to. Overall this is a great school district and I recommend it to new parents.

It is a good education. I typically score very well on the required Federal and State bench marking exams. The teachers, for the most part, are caring and take a personal interest in your success. There are a handful- as at most schools- that take it upon themselves to use class time as their own personal political opinion outlet- but only a few are disrespectful if you happen not to agree with their opinions. We have some bullying issues, as most schools in the US- but we are taking great steps in changing the culture to no longer tolerate that behavior. I would give our school a "grade" of a solid B overall.
Too obsessed with sports. A lot of bullies, xenophobia, and homophobia. Around 90% of students suffer from mental illness and substance abuse. Not inclusive to minorities.
