School Reviews

  • Recommended October 27, 2012 - My daughter started at Linden Hall in 6th grade and graduated 2 years ago. It was an amazing experience for her. She took advanced classes that weren''t even offered at her public school. The teachers were well supportive, knowledgeable, and caring. I do not feel that my daughter would have had the same great experience at any other local school. - Posted by Parent
