Linganore High School is a school with a permeating culture. There's very little violence among the halls due to how well everyone fits together. Learning favors mathematics, engineering (PLTW program), Sports (A thickly competitive culture), and Social Studies, but the course offerings are diverse enough to support any desired career. The teachers are mostly the reason why the departments that flourish do. Many of the teachers in other departments find many of the students disliking them.

I love Linganore high school! We are competitive in athletics, as our football team was state champions in 2017. It has an amazing academic program with many great teachers. The students are very welcoming and friendly.
Overall, Linganore High School was a place where I learned more than I could have imagined. Not only in classes and assignments, but about myself, others and the world around me. In high school everyone has hard times and struggles with various things for many different reasons. Personally, some of my struggles were at school. Some were dealing with a tough teacher or class that was harder for me, some of my struggles were with friends or other individuals. The education I've gained from Linganore in the last four years has been extremely beneficial and I could speak very highly about many teachers that have helped me achieve my goals, learn about what I want to do after high school and pushed me to do my best and get excellent grades. One thing I wish was a little better is the way administration solves problems. I know it may not be their job to solve an issue between two students but it is their job to make sure everyone feels safe in school.
