Several reviews of the school noted that the diversity was one of the greatest assets found within and around the school’s community.  Here’s a review from a parent found on

We have several children enrolled at Flynn Park and we feel so blessed to be a part of this school community. The teachers are enthusiastic about learning, and the principal is a huge supporter of positive reinforcement for all children. We really like the diverse community that defines Flynn Park, and we like the neighborhood feel of the school – both during school hours and after. Our kids, all different learning levels and strengths, are challenged and encouraged based upon their interests, strengths, and abilities. The teachers are willing to meet and discuss our concerns whenever we feel the need, and have always set our concerns at ease or have readily suggested solutions to our issues. WE LOVE OUR SCHOOL!
