Linden McKinley High School is located in Columbus, Ohio and is part of the Columbus City Schools District. The school has an enrollment of approximately 500 students in grades 9-12.

Mission[edit]

To ensure every student acquires the knowledge, and receives the personal support necessary, to graduate from high school prepared to successfully pursue either a career or post-secondary education.

Currently Linden McKinley maintains rigorous advanced placement courses in: English literature, English language, calculus, government and US history. In addition Kenyon College classes in English and Biology are held on site for dual credit.

Linden STEM Project[edit]

Beginning in the 2008-2009 school year, Linden McKinley high school will embark into a STEM curriculum. STEM, (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), will introduce cutting edge project-based learning alongside incorporated technology. The school will house grades 7-12 which will allow accelerated middle school students to receive additional high school credits in advanced coursework. In 2009, the current Linden McKinley high school will begin renovation to fully support the STEM curriculum.

The Linden STEM Project will have many educational and corporate sponsors such as: Ohio Dominican University, The Ohio State University, Battelle, and COSI, and students will be given opportunities for enriched instruction and post-secondary opportunities. Technology will be used to allow students to reach classrooms and professors around the world for interaction and educational opportunities. The school will be designed to serve students who want a learning experience that prepares them for the global job market through the belief that math, science and technology are essential to being successful in an ever changing world.

Student life[edit]

Leadership skills are developed through extra-curricular activities available both during and after the school day: Student council, GEWELS (Girls Empowered with Exceptional Leadership Skills), National Honor Society, SAVESNet, athletics, cheerleading, drill team, and marching band.

Athletic State Championships[edit]

Parent Participation[edit]

The quarterly "Roundtable" brings educators, parents, agency providers, and community members together in a collaborative effort, for continuous school improvement. The Parent-Teacher Association, athletic and band boosters offer additional opportunities for parent involvement.
