Lindenhurst Senior High School is one that prioritizes the student's ability to participate in more than just regular classroom activities. There is always an extensive amount of extracurricular that are tailored to the needs to each student. It also very easy to create your own club or have your voice heard on an administrative level. The course options are very versatile, from career and finance classes to marine biology or criminal justice and law. Also, the schools offers many AP courses alongside dual enrollment; both providing great opportunities to gain college credit. Overall, the kindred community of Lindenhurst High School is simply the cherry on top.

Lindenhurst High School is a good school, however it is lacking in some departments. While we may offer many more electives than other schools, it does not necessarily mean that those teaching the courses are truly qualified. Students who try to make their schedules cater to their personal interests are often let down when the courses they take are not what they expected when the course was advertised to them, or they are let down because they leave the course without the experience and knowledge they should have received. Lindenhurst High School does, on the other hand, offer many diverse clubs, sports and activities, and one thing they definitely do not lack is school spirit. Some other things I believe could improve in the school are the preparedness for college as well as the school policies. The school focuses on the wrong issues such as not allowing the students to hold sales of any type for their clubs/sports/classes rather than focusing on real issues.
Lindenhurst Senior High School is a very diverse school, meaning you will find all sorts of people attending. This school in particular is very competitive when it comes to athletics. Our varsity football team won the Long Island Champions title two years ago and last year they won the Suffolk County Champions Title. Not only this, but the environment of the school is very secure and safe. With constant security inside the building as well as outside, and even a police officer on patrol at the main entrance, the students are able to feel protected at all costs. The thing that would need change is the principle's role in the student's lives considering she hasn't done much to interact with the kids that attend this school.
