Overall, I liked the Lynnwood school and principal, and I felt the students we saw enjoyed their learning opportunity and collaborating together. I feel Lynwood has a great program ...  Read more

Our daughter just started 1st grade at Lynwood and it's a wonderful little neighborhood school. The principal is very accessible and hands-on and the teachers are warm and caring. We're looking forward to a great year!

I have found Lynwood to be very bias in grading. My child was always being accused of doing things perpetrated by other students. The principle is always clueless and has a way of acting like he is making things happen for students with certain needs. Lynwood doesn't have any tools to assist in cultural ...  Read more

Best school I've ever attended. The GATE class was the greatest experience of my life, and it's benefited me as a person in imeasurable ways. The advanced class was placed there to boost the tests scores of the school, which can lead to the assumption that it's a poor learning environment, but that ...  Read more

Horrible school, do not send your kids here. There are a handful of great teachers but it is not worth the trade off. Scores are marginal, look at the AYP breakdown, a few students bolster the scores to reach minimum standards. Current principal/school leadership and parent involvment are sub par. Classes ...  Read more

Lynwood was a great neighborhood school for both of my sons. They both tested and got into the 4th/5th grade GATE program which is for gifted students. We could not have been happier with the teachers we got. I loved the diversity my boys experienced. Lots of great parents as well. Did tons of volunteering, ...  Read more

As a former student of both of the two GATE teachers at Lynwood I think that they are awesome. They are two of the best teachers I have ever had. I learned so much from them. If anybody has the opportunity to be in the Lynwood gate program they should deffinetly take it.

Love Lynwood Elementary! Excellent, top-notch principal. Staff plays well with others, cooperates, S+ rate of retention of staff. Grade would be E with improvements from the district level. Could improve with more parental involvement, but that could be You... To a great extent, parental involvement ...  Read more

Our experience at Lynwood has been only with the 4th and 5th grade GATE program. We have been very pleased with the 'special education' directed at kids whose teachers have always said that they need to be challenged. The pace and depth of curiculum is the biggest difference between this and a 'normal' ...  Read more

Test Year: 2012
Lynwood Elementary School
Novato Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
