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.

Attending Lindblom Math and Science Academy most successful achievement of all students is being college ready academically. Personally my counselor, administration, and teachers are all by your side as support. Also they push you to be at the next level and to not settle for the less. When it comes to being prepared for college Lindblom provides those resources that connects you to your preference of a college. A couple things I would like to change about Lindblom is only there lunch food vendor and the inequality on sponsoring all sports/ activites.
I've been going to Lindblom for one year so far and I can honestly say that I am proud to be an eagle! All classes are either honors or ap which give me an extra push and helps get college credits. The classes are set up so they resemble a colleges' schedule. One thing I can say that I wish they would improve is the number of languages offered to study and more afterschool clubs, activities, and sports. I feel in a wider range of those it will bring a bigger audience and more diversity to those programs.
