    I am a Panther alumni. This is was and will always be a great high school. I am so happy to hear that the school is being remodeled and will become a STEM school. My teachers inspired me and worked hard to give us the best education possible.

    Linden Mckinley is a great school. I am a linden Mckinley alumni and I am currently attending The Ohio State University for engineering on a full academic scholarship and i believe that Linden prepares their students for college and the real world.. I have had some of the greatest teachers here and because of my experience at linden I was able to reach my potential at The Ohio state university earning a 3.4 GPA.

    Linden McKinley is finally getting the improvement everyone is talking about. The building and the instructional program are both being renovated. Linden Will become a 7-12 STEM (Science Technolgy Engineering Math) school. Plans are under way and in the next two years everyone should expect big thing to come out of the Linden-McKinley community. Keep your eyes on this rising star; I know i will.

    This school needs a lot of improvement. It appears students and teachers do as they please. No one follows rules.

    Linden McKinley is a great example of a neighborhood school bringing together students who are instilled with loyalty friendship and pride in their school and each other. The teachers are working hard to ensure that the students receive a quality education and the interaction between students and teachers needs to be commended. Even though the sports have not returned to the days of glory before the loyalty friendship and pride of the students in the stands and on the field which is also supported by Linden alumni who are proud of Linden Mckinley staff and students and still proud to be panthers. Few if any high schools have the true spirit of the Linden McKinley panthers - they just don't know what they are missing.

    This school needs alot of improvement. The kids that do want to learn need to be removed from class to help reduce discipline problems and help those that do.
