I have only attended Linden High School for 3 years and it was amazing. If I could I will do it all over sgain, since this is my last year. They have a great IB program that prepare every single student for college and more. The people in Linden High are very warm and pleased to offer assistance in anthing that a student needs. They have excelent sports like; soccer, baseball, softball, tennis, football, volleyball, and even bowling! There is variety of clubs that are always willing to accept new members, also some of the clubs include road trips. One of my favorite thins about this high school is that they offer exchanges for China, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, and Russia!

Linden High School is very diverse, filled with many opportunities and activities. Definitively a school which encourages on finding where you best fit in, within clubs, social groups, etc. Best part are the Student Activities such as our schools Language Exchange, Sports and Clubs. The Facility itself could be slightly better but the staff does it's best to keep it cleansed although hygiene is low due to some rodent issues
My experience in Linden High School was amazing! The school is very diverse which opened up many opportunities to get to know many people and network myself. The school also provided me with the opportunity to be in the International Baccalaureate Program which has made me exceed my academic expectations.
