Lyndale Community School is a nurturing environment that stretches my children's learning. It's a community that celebrates diversity, educates the whole child and creates learning opportunities that cannot be found at other Minneapolis public schools. Lyndale Community School has a full time Differentiated Learning Specialist (aka Gifted and Talented specialist). Student to staff ration is approximately 7 to 1.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

We love Lyndale, our neighborhood school. My son just finished Kindergarten. His teacher was simply amazing -- highly skilled, able to manage and motivate a very diverse group of kids at lots of different academic levels and still be a lot of fun. I especially appreciate how hard she worked to make sure kids reading above grade level were also challenged. Very involved parents, a warm welcoming school for all.

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.

Both of my daughters love Lyndale Community School. Lyndale is a diverse urban school with strong leadership, a great teaching staff, and a high level of parent and community involvement. Lyndale is among MPS s highest performers in year-to-year academic achievement. Lyndale School provides a strong sense of community. Everyone feels welcome there.

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.
