From Linfield Christian School

Linfield Christian School is an independent TK-12th grade college preparatory school that exists to inspire students to know the Lord, to love others, and to grow as servants and leaders so that they can change the world.

Linfield is committed to academic rigor rooted in biblical truth, all while cultivating a highly relational community in which every student is fully known and deeply loved. While studying on our beautiful 100 acre campus in Temecula, CA, students benefit from an engaging and innovative educational experience (including exceptional Fine Arts, Athletics, STEAM, and Biomedical programs), one that not only prepares them to be successful in college, but also sets them on a trajectory toward living remarkable lives. That might be a big claim for a small school, but with over 80 years of proven history and with 99% of our graduates going on to college or university, it is also true.

    Linfield is truly an amazing Christ centered school. The staff is helpful, the teachers are perfect, and the campus is beautiful. I have learned a lot from the academics, and Linfield helped me realize what I want to be. I actually look forward to going to this school each day!

    I’ve been at Linfield since 2nd grade! The community aspect of the school is absolutely the best! I’ve made connections with students and teachers that have lasted for years! The school also is very good for college prep because although I haven’t personally gone to college yet, students from our school have gone to prestigious universities like Yale, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Cal Berkeley, UC Davis, and University of Alabama and have thrived!
    Indoctrinates students with conservative ideology in the pretense of biblical implications, has harsh coursework which in turn deflates the GPA and few AP/Honors opportunities to bump GPA (many students that get a low 3.0 and end up at public school immediately get a 4.0), and chances at getting into college are very much so hurt because of this. There is a required comprehensive bible curriculum that delves into theology and philosophy, which also is often labor intensive, that most colleges don’t even accept as credit. There is no standardized test prep at all. Internationals are poorly integrated into the social life, and the ‘Christian culture’ among students is pretense. Favoritism is rampant, and the school has a set type of student they favor. If you don’t think you fit into the mold of a student that would be favored, do not come here. The counseling office is often very helpful, and most of the teachers are lovely, hence why I am unable to give 1 star.
