Open Quote I moved to the district from Massapequa. I'm Class of 2015. I moved here summer 2011, so I've done 9th grade here and am about to start 10th grade. I'll start with the pros of Lindenhurst High:
-a lot more diverse than Massapequa. I like meeting new people from different backgrounds.
-teachers are very good
-good school spirit
-middle-class, pretty nice student body. A lot less snobby then Massapequa, I'll tell you that!
-the lunch is better than Massapequa's!
-the Drama Club is...indescribably great!
-the Gay-Straight Alliance Club is good...I'm going to be treasurer this year :)
-there are many many different clubs to get involved in
-pretty diverse curriculum.
-the media center is nice and big and the staff is great
And now, we have the Cons....
-school is pretty tolerant towards drugs and illegal activity...in the morning, at the student drop-off on Lewis Ave, there's often a bunch of kids smoking pot, right next to the security guard...:/. Dress code isn't really enforced, either...
-there is a gang presence in the school, albeit not very big.
-my studio art room in 9th grade had a ton of cockroaches
-they recently ruinned the foreign language program...upperclassmen can no longer enroll in French and German as a 2nd LOTE :(
-during a geometry test, my teacher just decided to walk out of the room for a moment, so the class was totally unattended. Everybody just started getting answers from everybody else...weird :/
-some students are very violent
-the district is wayyyy too focused on athletics....
-the science Olympiad team is small and the school doesn't care about it...meanwhile in West Babylon, Farmingdale, even Bay Shore, the Science Olympiad is a big part of school.
-one dean is really good and smart. The other is a total goof. He suspended for 5 days without even checking to see if the kid was in the day of the incident!!!! How stupid!
-the superintendent is a goof, too.
-there are some kids in honors classes who really shouldn't be there and they just annoy the real honors students...
-the guidance department is rather unorganized..
-everybody seems to hate it :/.
Overall, Lindenhurst High School is great if you like sports, but most "nerds" like me really won't like it...LHS is certainly not a failing school, but LHS is certainly not an A+ school either...However I do like this district better than snobby, super un-diverse, and very overrated Massapequa!

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
