History

Linn-Mar High School opened in the fall of 1959. It was built at a cost of $243,325 and housed 177 students when it opened.[3] The school board had a naming contest for the school; a then-eighth grade student won $25 for submitting Linn-Mar, judged the best of 75 entries.[4]

In 2016, Newsweek named Linn-Mar to its list of best high schools for low-income students.[5]

LMHS athletic teams are nicknamed the Lions and compete in the Mississippi Valley Conference.[6] A new 6,000-seat athletics stadium opened in 2011,[7] and a new aquatic facility opened in 2013.[8]
