Lindero Canyon Middle School Reviews
I dont like it at all. Sorry, just the truth.
I honestly have no idea how this school has a "1" rating on education dot com. For the record, LCMS tests among the top in the state, has a great principle and reputation and for those of us that moved to this beautiful area for the public schools, it has exceeded our expectations, while saving thousands on a private education for our kids. (and Ron Kaiser is fantastic!)
It has been fantastic for all three of our kids!!! They all had different circumstances from being a gate student to needing 504 accomodations. Fantastic for all of them!! The counselors are terrific, the teachers are very special and the kids and community are great too!
The principal, Ronald Kaiser, is fantastic. He really cares about the kids and gets to know them individually. He supports the arts in the school, so consequently they have a fabulous music and fine arts program. Also annually they produce a full scale professional musical. Last year the school won the Bravo award for excellence in the arts for the LA area.
