My son attends the Math & Science Academy at Linkhorn. Overall we've been pleased but we have felt that there has not been as much communication with the parents as we would like. However, this year we are lucky enough to have a new principal, Barbara Sessoms. She was the principal at my son's previous school (W.T. Cooke) and we thought she did a fabulous job. We are already starting to see some changes and hope that she'll be able to continue improving.
I love everything about Linkhorn. Very sad that Linda Sidone (principal) has retired, but I feel confident there will be somebody equally as good to take her place. The parent involvement is amazing!!
I've had kids going to Linkhorn Park Elementary for 8 years now & I've never had an issue. The teachers are absolutely wonderful, the staff go above & beyond to help you, & the students never go without what they need thanks to all the generous parents that donate their time/money. I've volunteered there for years & I really enjoy working with students as well as the staff. The school as an incredible Math & Science Academy, which begins in 3rd grade, & my daughters love it! My husband & I had considered putting our kids in private school early on, but we're glad we didn't go through it as Linkhorn sets the bar high & continues to to meet it every year!
I love this school! My fourth grader has had the best experiences here with teachers who are fun, fair and wonderful educators. The principal is always visible and available for any questions or concerns as is the VP and the office staff is cheerful and helpful. My daughter has soared in reading this year, and the extra help she receives in math is all due to in house tutoring available to every student. I am proud to say she is an honor roll student each quarter this year and it is all due to the hard work and dedication of the teachers! Mrs. Ware and Mrs. Phillips are great to work with and stay in constant communication with parents and the second grade staff was equally accommodating. THIS is the place to be in VA Beach.

Go linkhorn lions! plus: the EDK for kindergarteners is an awsome program and im glad that they offer it and my son has had such a huge improvement in learning! thank you mrs.joyce!
Linkhorn Park is a wonderful school. Ms. Sidone has made great improvement these past two years.
The academic programs are nothing short of outstanding. They make school fun, and incorporate learning into every aspect of each day in many creative ways. I do wish there were more extracurricular activities available for the Kindergartners. The staff is very warm and friendly which creates a productive learning environment for the students. The parent involvement level is very impressive. There are many parents that contribute to the success and sense of community that the school provides. We are very pleased that our daughter attends such an outstanding school.
Linkhorn Park is the best public school in America. The math/science academy is an example of excellence in achedmics. The PTA is a shining example of the community behind public education. Bingo night, monster mash, after-school forigen language program, monthly cultural assemblies, field trips, are all above and beyond activities that families love. Kudos to the outstanding faculty and staff. The facility is state of the art with the science lab and the computer lab. It is all that a school should be...a safe learning environment that makes learning fun. We are proud of our school.
This is my daughters 2nd year at Linkhorn and I believe it is a super school. She has learned so much and seems to be adjusting very well. Mrs. Beverly (1st) and Mrs. Rendon (2nd) have been a god sent to my child. The staff at Linkhorn are there to help and ensure advancement for the children! GREAT JOB, LINKHORN!
Good Location. Class size was large but hired new teacher to decrease class size from 28 to 21 students. School academics above average. I felt teachers put forth a good effort for each student
Nice fun school. Good kids. Bingo night there is a blast. Good food too.
This is an excellent school! Samantha just adores Mrs.Manley and Ms.Holian! Please inform them that they are wonderful teachers. If you are a parent thinking of enrolling your child in school, Linkhorn Park Elementary is the school that will fit your needs.
This is our first year at this school and it is fantastic. Linkhorn offers a quality education in a safe, clean and fun environment. We have been so priveledged to send our child to Linkhorn each day and know he is getting the best education possible. Kudos to the principal and teaching staff who make this school so wonderful.
