Lindblom Math & Science Academy High School Reviews

Lindblom high school is a selective enrollment located in West Englewood that presents amazing opportunities. It offers challenging Ap and honors classes in all grade levels offering diversity and a wide variety of classes to choose from. In addition to the challenging classes, Lindblom also possesses some of the most passionate and skillful teachers in the city. On top of being known for its rigorous stem classes, it also offers a wide range of clubs, activities, and sports for students looking for something productive to do after school. As a student, I believe administration has to act on maintaining clean and newer facilities because the building is 100 years old. Another major concern is safety, ever since my freshmen year Lindblom has seen a wide variety of incidents occur both on and off campus.

Lindblom Math & Science Academy is a school that can easily prepare any child for college; school counselors are attentive, always willing to engage with students, and will actively seek out opportunities to help when they can. The same can be said for the teachers here at Lindblom; they always check in on their students, will go out of their way to help out whenever possible, and they are very lenient with revising work.

Coursework will be challenging, but never oppressing; even when you are struggling, there are numerous resources that can help you out such as the Writing Center which has specialized tutors and Khan Academy which will allow you to learn and practice the work at your own regular pace.
Lindblom has been such a great support system for me over the past 5 years. I could not see myself at any other high school, and the teachers, staff and administration are the BEST! I am now in my final year at Lindblom as a senior and it really touches a nerve to think about, because I will be leaving Lindblom's sheltered doors for good as a student after being one for 6 years.
