 LMHS Parent Open House

Linn-Mar High School will be hosting an Open House for parents on August 31st from 6:45 - 8:45pm with parent sign-in starting at 6:30pm. The event will provide parents and guardians the opportunity to meet their student's first quarter teachers and receive information regarding course expectations, curriculum, homework requirements and grading policies.

Parents will follow an abbreviation of their student's actual daily schedule starting at 6:45pm. Please print your student's schedule from PowerSchool and bring it along if you want to avoid waiting in line for schedules.

Please feel free to contact LMHS if you have any questions regarding Parent Open House or anything else regarding your student at LMHS.

 ACT Scores for Class of 2015 show readiness

The readiness of Linn-Mar's students - for college, for career and for work - is once again reflected by their ACT scores.

ACT results have been released for the Class of 2015 graduating seniors from Linn-Mar High School. With a record-making number of students having taken the exam - 349 students or 46 more students than the year before - the district composite score held at 24.5.

In fact, average ACT scores at Linn-Mar CSD were higher than state averages in every area:
• Tested Area; District Average; State Average
• English; 23.5; 21.6
• Mathematics; 24.5; 21.5
• Reading; 24.8; 22.7
• Science; 24.8; 22.3
• Composite; 24.5; 22.2

According to ACT findings, the percent of Linn-Mar's ACT-tested students ready for college-level coursework was also significantly higher than state percentages.

The ACT consists of curriculum-based tests of educational development in areas designed to measure the skills needed for success in first year college coursework.
