    Administration is very involved with the students and parents. Plenty of opportunities for extracurricular activities. Administration does an excellent job of responding to parent requests and feedback

    Both of my kids have gone to this school. There is no air conditioning but aside from that it is a fantastic school! The administrators are fabulous and really care about the students. They offer offer lots of cool activities such as the 24 hour run movie nights activity nights dodge-ball tournaments. Most of the teachers are great too! I'm so happy my kids went to this school!

    Lundahl is amazing. My son is just finishing his 6th grade year and it has been such positive experience for him. Everything has been wonderful starting with the school leadership to the teachers to the athletic activities he has been involved with. The school has a supportive culture it feels safe and comfortable for the kids. My son is challenged academically and feels accepted. Overall couldn't be happier with this experience.

    The school is 50-50. It's good because of awesome teachers like Mr. Nenn and other company you can also get lots of good extra credit in classes but what's best is Mr. Grubbs with his backflips. But what's bad about it is mean teachers that I'm not gonna say and the school has no air conditiong which bothers lots of students at Lundahl.

    Its okay I'm a 7th grader. But the kids tend to be... eh. Not the best. The lockers don't open right. My grades are worse. And there's not really air conditioning... The good thing is the extra curricular and the teachers are nice. OH and mr. grubbs is awesomee!!

    I am a sixth-grader from Lundahl and it's awesome! There are tons of great after school activites. I'm in an 'gifted' class (extra curricular) and the teachers have so much to offer!

  • (6 years ago)

    They are great! they have extra teachers there to help during and after school when you needed help which is why i went from almost a strait C student to A's and B's. They have a lot of connections with the parents. And they have a massive load of school activities and sports. Their very pertective but i like it. and they will have police at the school every day and even if somebody threatend to have a shooting at the school. The only thing if you really want to hear something wrong with it i would sya a little more air conditioning!

    Lundahl is great! I am a 6th grader and have been there for only about 2 months and i love it there. Its like my home away from home!

    Lundahl has lots of outside activities perfect for any student. It has diffrent band levels and has various art music and language classes along with the basic corses too. It has a group of extra-cericuler clases for those who learn at a faster pace. It also has a great staff who are very helpful to the students.

    I think this school is pretty nice compared to the other schools in the area it has the least amount of problems with behavior.

    i don't like the school that much but the teachers are really really nice.The only big promble i have with it is that there is no air in the summer.

    I am a seventh grader at lundahl. I feel that this school is good at being a good influence emotionally for the students but sometimes academic studies are hard to come by.

  • (10 years ago)

    I am not a parent but a student of lundahl middle school. I'm in eigth grade. this school needs major updating on ventilation. the upper gym has no windows and is always hot even in the winter. some teachers are very under qulified for the job if you ask me. I would only give this school 2 stars. the only things I find impresive there is the math and science courses.

  • (10 years ago)

    I love this school! I'm a student and I've loved every minute of it! The kids are great and the teachers are awesome. This is one of the best schools I've gone to. There are many extracirricular activities to participate in too! If your into sports or are not so athletic there's something for you!

    This is a good school but is very old so there is no air conditioning and could be updated a little more than it is.
