I was involved in most of the extra curriculars offered. This being said, I loved the environment of the school, and the positivity the groups I was involved in were able to create. Through student council, we raised food, money, laundry detergent, and more for our community. Through nation honors society, I was able to serve my community through volunteering at my church and dance studio. Overall, Linden high school gave me and my peers so many opportunities to make the school a better place, and I think through of of our groups we fulfilled that duty.
I overall had a positive experience from Linden High School and I firmly believe that it is a good school for a students growth and future success. Most teachers are caring, kind, and will go out of their way to ensure that students succeed. This applies to both their education and lives outside of school as well. Linden is a relatively small town with small graduating classes. While there are a fair share of "cliques" throughout Linden, most students are friendly. Some of the pros and cons of Linden Community Schools include the following:

Pros:
-Easy to develop closer relationships with classmates due to small student population.
-Smaller classrooms for more individualized learning.
-Kind and caring teachers.
-Opportunities for students that want to further their future professional careers (AP classes, college courses, dual enrollment, etc.).

Cons:
-Lack of diversity among student population.
-Politics, coaches playing "favorites", and a slew of other issues involving sports.
