    This school is amazing! The teachers will help out students and provide great learning. There is a full art program jazz band and 6th grade choir. Homework help in the library after school is also provided. This school also provides many clubs such as Yearbook Art Club Greenhouse and more! If you live in Lynden and have a middle-schooler but don't want to pay for a private school LMS is for you!

    Lynden Middle School is an overall okay school. There are plenty of sports programs and several after-school activities. There are some really cool teachers there but others are strict. The principal is awesome. It's mostly the students you have to worry about but since this is about the environment of school I can't say too much about that. Compared to other schools LMS is okay.
