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.

All of the students in this school had to test and be selected to get into this school. All of the students are literally brilliant. Rarely ever a ACT score lower than 20 at this school. Almost all of the students have academic plans for the future and come into the school with goals. There are no regular classes, only honors and AP classes. The class schedule is also set up like a college class schedule so the students come into college academically and socially prepared for college. Excellent curriculum that produces excellent students!
Lindblom has really prepared me for my life goals although I am only a sophomore. All the classes at Lindblom are either Honors or Advanced Placement classes, so you have no choice but to receive the best education possible. Lindblom has great clubs for all sorts of different interest, as well as a huge variety of sports and after school activities to choose from. I've really enjoyed my time at Lindblom. Everyone is extremely supportive and work with you. Classes progress at different speeds for those who need more help than others. Teachers are extremely patient. The Principal is always ensuring that the Lindblom community is accepting and achieving.
