Line Mountain Junior/Senior High School Reviews

100 reviews

Line Mountain has some great teachers, but also a few "bad eggs" which spoil the soup. Although some teachers are great, sometimes it seems as if nothing is taken serious. Administration for the high school isn't always the best, and the school board is terrible. Only emphasis is placed on sports, no support for non-sports activities (band, choir, theater). The lack of communication between administration and students is terrible. It also seems that there were never enough teachers (only 2 for art, 2 for all music classes grades K-12, 3 English teachers for 4 grades, only 3 science teachers, etc.) The school has a habit of not hiring back teachers once they retire, rendering the school short staffed and affecting the availability of some classes. Not a very supportive school of the arts. Very good with gifted students and all special education students.

I liked that Line Mountain High School was a small district. Overall the school district needs to improve its academics so that students are better prepared for college classes.
Line Mountain is a very friendly school. Mostly everyone you meet there is nice and caring. The teachers also show that they care about the education and the students well being.
