    We are so happy at Lyndale! My daughter started kindergarten this year and she loves her teacher and classmates. She is thoroughly engaged in her academics and is supported and challenged accordingly. We have a wonderful principal who gives her all and the teachers are amazing. There is a great sense of togetherness and a great attitude throughout this school.

    The city needs to spend more time watching this school. The teacher my child has is the worst teacher I have ever experienced. Very bossy and not nurturing at all. When I go into the building I just get a depressed feeling. The school is behind on everything. Even school pictures are not taken until November.

    Individualized teaching is what its all about. And a principal who gets to know each and every child and family.

    Our principal provides excellent leadership for a school that is open and welcoming of all students. The teachers are especially talented at identifying each child's academic needs and providing differentiated instruction. Classes are small and diverse.
