We have children who speak English as a 2nd language. The are accepted among peers and very well attended to by staff & faculty, and intervention is administered immediately for those who require it. There are children of unemployed parents and children of nuclear physicists attending this school. We have children born in the USA, of all races, but children from Latin Countries (Mexico, Cuba, etc.) European (France, Russia, etc.), Asia (China, Pakistan, etc.). Thanks to the local Nuclear Research Facilities, the area attracts many intellectual transplants from all over the world. I really like the fact that my children are exposed to other children from all over the world, of different race and religion.

While we don't have security guards and metal detectors, it seems like it would be overkill for a K-4 facility, despite recent events. Doors remain locked during the day, in addition to playground access. Visitors must be buzzed in after video identification. Access to classrooms from the front door is very well controlled. The school nurse is wonderful and tends all issues from scrapes and bumps to incontinence. While bullying exists at every school, my children haven't yet been affected by it. I really think Linden embraces it's "nerd" culture, promoting science & technology for all students, at the same time encouraging physical activities with groups such as "girls on the run."
Elementary schools don't usually have organized teams/sports. The Physical Education program is great, however, continues to be cut back to shorter periods. Also, children only have 1 recess a day, while 4th grade sometimes forgo recess altogether. All of this is due to time restrictions. I do wish children were given more time for physical activity.
