    I hated it here. It's like the Gulag with bells. The uniform is a joke and there is very little trust towards the students. I was so glad to leave on the last day two years ago and I really don't miss it there.

    Linkhorne has great programs like band orcestra chorus drama shop sports and other electives. I am in the band and we have a wonderful funny band director that helped us to 2nd place in the music in the parks at Busch Gardens!

    Student here at Linkhorne in the Eighth Grade. Personally if you look around the fact that I hate school overall (problems in the past).. Linkhorne is a great school. Not looking forward to leaving it in two and a half months.

    Linkhorne is a very well run school that is has good discipline and yet treats each student as an individual. The teachers are excellent and the students are really good kids as well. The school has some diversity but all the students benefit from it and there don't seem to be the racial problems like in some places. My son plays football and the players on the team actually put pressure on him to get straight 'A's.
