    "This beautiful historic landmark building, has a wonderful faculty. The teachers seem enthusiastic to teach and are great with the kids. They are supportive and make themselves available for tutoring. With less than 1,000 students, the classrooms are not overcrowded and teachers get to know students. As a parent who is not from that neighborhood, safety was a concern. It is in a rough neighborhood, BUT, security is always present, a CPD officer is always around, and there have been no safety issues inside the school with the students. Classes are challenging and takes some getting used to with 100 minute classes ( 4 periods a day). No regular classes on Wednesdays but instead have colloquium classes in which students receive extra support/ help with their work. This school should not be overlooked."

    "Lindblom is a good school. The teachers tend to cater to the smart students. The school is not very good for the average student. The teachers could care less about the average student. There is no support at Lindblom if you are an average student."

    "My daughter just graduated from this excellent school in June. During her 4 years, not only was I extremely impressed with the challenging curriculum Lindblom has, but also with the very caring teachers, staff and principal. At graduation, there were several hundred students there and Mr. Mather knew each child's name; when I jokingly asked him about that, we replied that these are his kids; and that was so heartwarming for me to hear because there are a lot of schools in which the kids are just numbers. Wonderful school!"

    "I'm so happy my kids are going here. Yes, the neighborhood is depressed, but the staff is very cognizant of the dangers, and they do everything they can to keep the kids safe. This includes offering shuttle bus service, and walking kids to bus stops to wait with them. (The security guards walk to the corner with the kids, then pretend not to know them, just as any teenager would like from their parent:) The teachers and administrators are very responsive to parent suggestions and concerns, and really seem to be thinking about the best way to design and run a school/classroom. The school is not very ethnically diverse, and is mainly African-American, but as one of the few white folks, I can only say we have always felt welcome, and our kids haven't ever felt negatively singled out. Besides good staff, the students seem smart and respectful. The test scores have been dramatically improving over the few years it has been a selective enrollment school, and every year they add interesting new classes according to student interest. In addition to strong math and science curriculum, we have been pleasantly surprised by excellent arts and languages."
