Principal and grade-level teachers: GREAT! Art, music and after-school programs/child care organizer: TERRIBLE to the point of bullying/abuse. We have pulled our children out. A travesty in this beautiful community of artists and musicians!
How very odd that someone posted on the Flagstaff Academy site about how terrible the present principal at Lyons was when he was at the school and just a couple of days later someone at Lyons posts how wonderful this guy is doing at Lyons? I had heard it was a joke as to how this person manipulated the Great Schools site at Flagstaff and I am suspicious he is up to his tricks at Lyons. There was a strange very positive article about him in the Times Call as well that he apparently solicited that many Lyons parents were puzzled about. Hopefully self promotion can only get this person so far before his true self is revealed.
This is a wonderful school with a great sense of community. All of teachers at each grade level are excellent. The new principal this year has been awesome, and the parent involvement here is very welcoming.
We have two children at Lyons. Both adore their teachers and their reading and comprehension has shot up in this year. We are pleased with the strong sense of community here in Lyons and it reflects in the school.
