In the words of our 2016 Salutatorian:
"The people here are fantastic. They are wonderful and precious. They will love you and support you in your darkest times; your friends will keep you sane as much as they drive you insane. Teachers who care about their subjects, friends who hug you when you cry and do Calculus with you through lunch — these are beautiful things."

At Linden Hall every girl is valued and known by her teachers, advisors, coaches, and peers. Research shows that students learn better in smaller classes. The personal attention that students receive allows smaller schools to foster a greater sense of community.
Independence offers specific freedoms that contribute to academic success. Independent schools have the freedom to define their own mission, to admit students who are well-matched to the school's mission, define the qualifications for high-quality teachers , to determine their own curriculum and select how to assess student achievement.
The research is clear – girls learn better, achieve more, and are exposed to greater leadership opportunities in an all-girls' school. Compared to girls at co-ed schools, girls who attend an all-girls' school have higher self-esteem and self-worth that is founded on factors other than physical appearance.
