    I have one child who just completed her education at Flinn Elementary a second child beginning 3rd grade and am happily sending a third child to Kindergarten. The staff if friendly and helpful and based on my children's standardized testing the academics are high quality. Parents are very welcome and many are heavily involved and I have no concerns about the safety of my children while in Flinn's care.

    My son has been a student at Flinn Elementary since Kindergarten and we both love it. I was so proud to be sending my child to a school that was voted WV school of excellence. I volunteer and am grateful for the help and thoughtfulness of the teachers. They are always happy to have the help of parents. They always do a wonderful job making learning fun. The music and art classes are wonderful. I could not have asked for a better school. Flinn's special needs classes are wonderful and has helped my son a great deal. Thank you Flinn Elementary for a wonderful job.

    My daughter is in her second year at Flinn and I could not be more pleased all around. Before my daughter started kindergarten I had even considered starting her in private school however because Flinn was close I decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise to find a caring and attentive staff that truly cares about the children they are responsible for. The curriculem is presented well yet in a fun way which makes learning easy. Flinn was also one of only seventeen schools in the state voted as 'BEST' during the '04-'05 year! Congratulations!

    My child is a student at Flinn Elementary for several years now and I am very well pleased with how the school is run. The teachers help out any way they can. Even help the parents! This is a A plus no.1 school glad I had the chance to send my daughter through there and get to meet the teachers and become friends with them!

    I have worked there as a teacher. I have also sent my children there for their education. It is a very high quality school with great expectations. The teachers are friendly and get along with each other. Parents are always welcome and many volunteer to help at the school. The help from parents is genuinely appreciated by the staff.
