    I think the school is great. I have had three of my kids attend this school and cannot imagine sending them any where else. The teachers and the principal are amazing!

    My son attended the EAK program at Lindo Park and for the most part he did learn quite a bit. If your child has to go to CARE Mrs. Val is the bomb and she really takes care of the kids. I transfered my son to a different school and we already miss her.

    My daughter just started kindergarden at Lindo Park. Her teacher Mrs.Chaconas is a very awesome teacher and I only wish I had a teacher that cares like she does for the children. The whole school in general is awesome. The learning the playing the activities and the programs are all part of the greatness.

    This is a great school. The teachers my son has had thus far have really truly taken a genuine interest in my child. The Principal is amazing. I was shocked to see that in the middle of a large function at school with so many children and parents around that she could still go up to my son and call him by his first name! His teacher this year is amazing. She truly takes a genuine interest in the child and the family and is warm and caring! My son loves to go to school everyday and that says a lot!

    I am a teacher and there are many things I like about Lindo Park School. They do a lot to involve parents and family. The Principal is very involved and aware of what is going on at the school. I am not completely thrilled with my childs teacher. The teacher has gone through periods of inconsistency but is doing better now. He told us our child 'wasnt good' at math but that really wasn't the case and he based that on one test our child didnt finish. Our child is struggling with anything to do with printing and there has been no offer to test or offer extra support. The teacher is sending home pages torn from the classroom workbook for homework. I have offered to help with resources from my classroom but he doesnt seem to want them. I am not overly impressed with his teacher this year.

    Great school. Very experienced concerned and talented teachers. My above-average son is being challenged appropriately in class. Happy to see music/art/p.e. program developed!
