Map of Lyn Knoll Elementary School address.

I have never met school officials that were less professional. I have donated over $1000 of items to this school without even a thank you. This included a piano for the music department and $200 cash for turkeys for less fortunate kids. I have yet to receive a verbal or written thank you. I am married to one of the teachers at the school and it feels like they looked at what I have done personally as a requirement of her teaching there. If I had to recommend a school in the area I would not recommend Lyn Knoll if the staff doesn't have respect enough to say thank you, I doubt they have the professionalism to teach children.

I was very hesitant to put my child here because of the reviews. Yes, it's true, the level of education is nominal, which is why I gave four stars. However, the staff is wonderful, attentive, and caring. We have a higher needs kid that is struggling, and the staff has been unbelievably supportive. The only reason the level of education is where it's at, is because the school really is bursting at the seams, way too many students! There is no way the teachers can do any better, but it certainly isn't for a lack of trying! I'm a very involved parent and have witnessed first hand how much the staff does for each child. They do the best they can and I am very pleased!

Our son attended this school a couple of years ago. We pulled him out. The schools are bursting at the seams. Large class size when my son attended. There is a new principal at this school--that may be a plus but the problems may be too much for one person to overcome.

Nice school, friendly staff, high percentage of immigrants with little or no family desire to have children succeed. Many speak english as a second language and are ill prepared for any form of education involving instruction in english, like many urban schools that cater to large immigrant communities, it seems to me, that the school is used as babysitting situation while the parents work. Lousy scores year after year with little possibility of improvement possible. Looking at aps map the only schools that have realistic expectations of giving children an education are those that have larger white populations, presumably families that have better education want the children to benefit as well. Not a bad school just overwhelmed by the immigrant issue, aps policy is incremental improvement over a long period which means all the kids in low scoring schools now are getting a lousy education.
