Dear Linden High School Family,


On behalf of Linden High School (LHS), I am delighted to welcome all to the 2023-24 school year. As Principal, I am truly honored to be a part of the Linden High School learning community. It is my belief that with hard work, dedication, and perseverance all students can reach their potential and achieve all goals. Here at LHS, we believe in educating the whole child by way of equity and diversity. Our teaching faculty, clinical professionals, and support staff are committed to providing high quality academic instruction, social-emotional learning, counseling and support services.


Entering this year, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children. This will be accomplished by setting high academic expectations for all students and providing supportive systems to assure achievement. By focusing on a positive school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students, and engaging the community, it is our goal at LHS that all students are on track to be college or career ready.


I welcome your involvement and participation this school year as we strive toward an academically successful 2023-202 school year.


Educationally Yours,

Charles Koonce
