The Linden School is not what it use to be. Where do I start...it was great when Dawn was the Principal. Tracey and Tara were also great but they 'left'. They use to be all about teaching girls positivity and leadership..now it is all about being a victim and hating men. Their admission process is not selective at all and they now take a huge amount of girls that have issues. This is fine but... more

My daughter loves attending The Linden School and as parents we are quite happy with what we've seen so far.  The teachers are amazing and seem quite happy to be there.  They show enthusiasm for teaching.Report cards recently came home and I was surprised to see the mini-novel of feedback written for each subject area.  Very different from what we've seen in her previous school.  Based on... more

My daughter is in her second year here and has found the community, including staff, so incredibly nurturing. So glad it goes up to 12! The level of instruction is leagues above those found in her previous school - the teachers seem to be able to keep those girls engaged and thriving in novel ways. I know they have ongoing training and keep abreast of new educational methods. I love the place.

If you are considering sending your child to linden, please take a moment to read this.First, I want to make it clear that many parts of linden are wonderful, including several teachers and the majority of the student body. However, as i'm now an adult ex-student of this school i'm going to bury the hatchet on this difficult phase of my life. To make a several year-long story short, I endured a... more

I have been attending Linden since grade 6. I am currently in grade 11. I'm not sure who really goes on yelp to review a private school, but there's no reason Linden should have two stars. When I first stared going to Linden in grade 6 I was a small girl who was extremely unconfident in my abilities to do Math, Science and English.  My grade 6 teacher Beth changed that, and so did the teachers... more

Most staff and curriculum were wonderful, however, after carefully picking a school that would empower young girls as they became young women, and one where 1/2 the children entering the grade (7) would be new, so she wouldn't be the only one, our daughter experienced such extreme bullying (social media and otherwise), that she began to cut herself. When we finally realized the problems she was... more

It seems odd to be writing a review about a school, but I have to respond, given the low rating I see. (There are many positive comments that are not featured at the top, which I don't understand.)

The Linden School is simply one of the finest communities that I have ever been part of. The passion and expertise from the faculty is just unmatched. (Seriously: Go to Ratemyteacher and see what... more

Sending my daughters here was the worst mistake I have made in regard to their education. They attended one year, then we transferred to another school. Even if they had liked it there, I would not have had them return. However, it is the only year in their high school years (or elementary for that matter) that they both HATED going to school. At their new school, they are both on the Gold... more

We'd tried the big fancy private school and the local public school. Then in Grade 7, our daughter came to Linden. The smaller class size, nurturing environment and excellent teaching (especially math, science, art and technology), have helped her discover her passions. The diverse community at Linden is a vital reflection of Toronto and the world our daughter will be part of. No ivory towers... more

We sent our daughter for grade 7. In our experience with both our older kids, and observing kids in our neighbourhood, this is a real critical time to keep kids on the rails. The reality is, you have much less control than when the kids were elementary age. Peer group is the dominant influence and having teachers that have the will and capacity to more closely engage, monitor and care, is... more

Two years ago my oldest daughter started here and blossomed. This year we started my younger daughter and the same has happened. The school provides a supportive, interactive learning environment and my kids come home engaged and conversational. What more could I ask?

It's not clear why the only review showing is a negative and deceiving one. My daughter is thriving here. The staff and faculty are top notch educators. Please read the reviews marked as hidden for a true picture of the school from actual parents and students.

Where to begin?One reviewer suggests that readers simply "find another school because Linden caters to students with some learning or mental issues".  Another reviewer, seemingly a former student, depicts Linden as an average educational setting that does little to prepare its female students for the realities of high school, but proved to be helpful during her challenging middle school years. ... more

OK, I have to write a review because the other review was so mean it's hard to not say anything.

I haven't gone to Linden in a long time, but I did go there for 6 years, so I feel I have a bit of a perspective.

First of all, I don't have a "mental or learning" issue. The reasons I chose to go to Linden were vast and varied, but the main driving force to leave public school at that time was... more

This school is not what it seems.  In an attempt to save money, this school does not hire OTC teachers.  Most of their teachers are not trained well nor do they have teaching qualifications.  Most of the students are there because they cannot be in a regular public school due to a variety of mental and learning issues.  In short, find a better school.
