I have had 4 children go through Lino Elementary over the past 20 years and it has been a wonderful experience. Great teachers, great parent involvement and great learning going on. Extra kudos to Lisa Sauer, the music and FPS teacher. She continually comes up with fresh ideas and I have not seen the same concert twice from her.

Lino Lakes Elementary instills a positive attitude about education to young students. They strive to set a strong foundation for not only education but also social skills and self esteem. Each student is greeted personally upon entering the building each morning. (What a great way to make students feel welcome and important.) I would prefer to see smaller class sizes, but in todays world with all the educational budget cuts, Lino Lakes Elementary still focuses on doing the best job they can do with the resources they have available. I feel that my student matters.

It's evident that all staff members work together to provide the best education & educational experience possible according to the childs needs, whether it's for a child who needs help keeping up with required material or for a child who has mastered grade level material and needs a little more challenge.

I know my child is safe and in good hands at Lino Lakes Elementary School. The school, staff, bus drivers, etc all do a wonderful job of communicating and making sure parents are informed about their child. Also, my child looks forward to school every single morning.

Lino is a remarkable school that gives 100% to every child that walks through those doors. Giving up when things get tough is not an option. The children there have the entire school cheering them on to give it their all, and I have watched them all excel through the years. Every child at Lino counts!!!!!!! Bravo to all who help at Lino and make a difference its a team effort from school to home!!!!! Thank you!!!!
