Welcome to the Linden Public Schools Health / Physical Education / Athletics Department!

The Linden Interscholastic Athletic Program is a vital component of the curriculum and instructional program of each school. The program offers student athletes an opportunity to learn and develop self-discipline and sportsmanship. The opportunity to participate is an important part of the student athlete’s total learning experience and is a privilege that carries with it a responsibility to the student body, parents and community. Although winning contributes to excellence, it is not the main focus of the athletic experience; instead the desire to excel and succeed as an individual and member of a team should be the highest priority.
