Overall I have had a very nice experience at Linden-Kildare High School. Even though is is a small school, it offers an excellent education and a variety of classes. What I like most is the the size of the classes. There are normally 20 or less students in each class during a period and this helps the student and teacher to receive the interaction time they need. What I would like to see change mainly is the physical features of the school. It is quite old so the facilities are need some updating, but they do not hinder learning in any way.

LKHS offers sooo much for a 2A school! There are tons of dual credit classes, CTE classes, and student organizations to get involved in.
The academics are below standards in almost every subject. Science is generally the exception, though our lack of funding makes a subject like Chemistry somewhat difficult with limited resources. I've ranted enough about the teachers. We only have one Foreign Language offered, and we have to find a new teacher almost every year now. We don't have very many electives available, and the lack of teachers means you end up with the same teachers multiple years in a row, which can be good and bad. It's bad if the homophobic woman in 2nd Hall teaches five different electives and I've taken four of them due to limited options. The workload isn't bad except for from a few specific teachers. Our only online courses are Dual Credit courses through a nearby community college, and this online College Algebra course is honestly the first real math class I've had since 5th grade. That's how poor our general math education has been. Last year our Pre-Cal teacher successfully covered I think two chapters in the entire year. We never did anything. Scheduling is a nightmare. It never ends well for anyone, and getting your schedule changed is like pulling teeth. You also get forced to retake classes since we have so few electives and often you'll have a class period where you have nothing you haven't already taken. Or you get stuck with a nightmare. I was forced to take either AG or Athletics during 5th period one year because they were the only two classes I hadn't taken that were offered at that time. A very large percentage of students are failing and only graduate through online credit recovery options, or they wait until they're old enough and drop out. Then again, a lot of them have just swapped to homeschooling so they can do nothing all day and still graduate. The sad part is that our academics are rarely challenging, so failing is entirely a lack of effort in all but a few classes.
