This is a wonderful school!. The academics are great! the children learn a lot and compared to some of the private schools are advanced. Aborn is a small school with a lot of love and caring. The staff members know all the kids and the kids all know each other. It is a very loving enviroment bullying is not tolerated. The kids seem to all care about each other and play with everyone. The Music,art and gym teachers are wonderful. Lynn has a bad reputation for its schools. But this school is overlooked, it is by far better then a lot of the wealthier town's schools. Alot is invested in the children. My son cant wait to go to school has learned so much. When I walk in the school everybody knows me they are very welcoming to the parents and children.
