From Linwood Middle School

Linwood Middle School is a learning community comprised of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who are divided into grade-level House Centers. At the core of our curriculum are courses in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. This core is supported by our Life Skills (elective) courses where students explore Health, Physical Education, Music, Art, Technology and World Languages (French, Spanish, German, and Italian).

Our students are also provided with opportunities during the school day for academic enrichment and social-emotional learning. During the first period of the day, all students have a “Read and Review” (R&R) period which provides a structured time to build study habits, as well as introduce Character Education activities. Several students are also enrolled in additional academic strategies and enrichment sections of R&R , which focuses on various literacy and mathematical skills for increased academic achievement.

AMPED on Algebra STEAM-Based Program

Linwood has implemented a STEAM-infused program known as AMPED on Algebra. Students in this supplemental program will apply algebra to real life (“Contextualized“ learning). They will use technology such as 3D printers to run business-like activities to supply data for analysis, and for tracking and prediction modeling using algebraic functions via an interdisciplinary, STEAM-infused approach.

    Linwood is one of the worst public Middle School anyone can go to. I am currently in Linwood and I hate it. Let's start with the teachers, the teachers don't care about anyone but themselves. For example, When an administrator comes in they act like they were not even yelling at us two seconds ago. Next, my classmates, they are disruptive and treat the school like a barn. In the halls, they are either running or walking as slow as they can in front of people to get them mad. Also, the fights that they start are the stupidest thing ever they are so disruptive, and then no one can get to class because the teachers are blocking the halls. Lastly, the administrators are the absolute worst. They treat people differently than other people. Also whoever starts a fight rarely gets into trouble and who stands up for themselves gets into trouble it's ridiculous.

    There are a lot of things wrong with Linwood Middle School...for starters students who disrupt the classes aren't held accountable and are loud to mostly go unpunished. When given ISS or OSS the students see it more as a reward than a punishment. The ISS room is a joke, it has computers which the students are aloud to use, they are aloud to talk and use phones, its ridiculous! Though there was a lot of negative certain teachers made it a better experience and i felt i had their support, but there were very few teachers, about 5 in the entire school.
    There are many academic opportunities, but skills in socializing are needed to branch out and find these opportunities. Without discipline, I found there will be a hard time.
