The History of Lindale Middle School
First, there was Lindale Junior High
The new middle school was named by combining the two towns where the students lived, Linthicum and Ferndale, into one: LINDALE. Lindale Junior High occupied this building from May 1972 until 1993.

In 1991, Lindale Junior moved in with Brooklyn Park . Even though the two schools were combined under one roof, they both still retained their own identity and separate staff. Lindale Middle was still called the Lancers and Brooklyn Park was still called the Bees.

In January, 1996, Lindale Middle moved from the Brooklyn Park Middle school into the newly renovated Andover High school building. Brooklyn Park moved right along with them so that their building could be renovated. During this time, the two schools decided to use the same mascot, the Jets.
In the fall of 2000, Brooklyn Park Middle moved into their renovated building and Lindale Middle was finally a middle school with a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. To celebrate the occasion and its new future, Lindale held a contest to choose a new mascot. The school decided to name itself after an American wild cat, the Lynx.
