We have only had good experiences at Flynn Park. The teachers are amazing, the community is welcoming and diverse and there are many extracurricular opportunities available to students. Our kids love going to school!

My children range from the mid-20's down to 7 years old and they have all attended or are attending Flynn Park. Our experiences here throughout the years have been phenomenal. The student population is wonderfully diverse in ethnicity, religion and socioeconomic status. All of their teachers have cared for my children as if they were their own. Flynn Park is not just a school, it's a family and you will not be able to find a more supportive environment for you or your child. I know of families who have had some issues, as every school does, but if the staff is unaware of your concerns, they are unable to address them. Whenever we have had any concerns they were addressed fully and completely. the principal and counselor are always available for even the tiniest issues. Their academic programs are very strong. We have had friends move to surrounding more 'elite' districts or private schools and many of them have commented to me that their children were actually working at a more advanced level at Flynn and a number of them definitely regretted leaving for a number of reasons. The staff is extremely supportive of children who are struggling as well and they offer differentiated instruction at every level. While academics are of the utmost importance they also very much understand that children are children and the incredible importance of recess, social interaction and play. Their character programs are phenomenal and it is very clear that kindness and celebrating diversity are the norms. We love Flynn Park! (and Brittany Woods, and U City High too!)

Flynn Park is a remarkable school for our three kids. It is one of the few truly multi-racial schools in the St. Louis area. The education and experience provided are excellent. The school currently has a chess program being taught by the St. Louis Chess Club, an excellent Strings program, an award-winning Equations team, after-school programs taught by COCA instructors, and much more. There are many engaged and involved parents and a strong school administration. Great place!

We have 3 children currently attending Flynn. We love the community and the teachers. I can't imagine a more diverse school, ethnically and economically than this school. My children are receiving a great education and also learning how to live and learn with every type of kid. We wanted a place where our children could learn, be challenged and also be part of a community that reflects the real world, not a wealthy bubble where everyone looks like they do and has what they have. We have found it and are tremendously happy.
