Open Quote I attended Mary Lin from 2002-2007. The school has changed a lot since then, I am sure–some for the better, some for the worse. When I was a student there, bullying was extremely common and nothing was done about it–except maybe telling off the bullied child and giving them a hard time about it. The teachers were hit or miss. I had AMAZING teachers, and I had emotionally abusive teachers—some of which DO still teach at the school. I think my experience was not the norm, but I do know others who suffered similarly. Ideally, the school has improved. Close Quote

Open Quote The school does well in general but the administration has poor leadership, communication, and advocacy skills. They are alienating the parent community. Close Quote

Open Quote The intown community and parent involvement is what makes Mary Lin superlative in so many ways. As many schools teach for tests, I have found Lin doing more to help my son become confident in his questioning as he examines the world. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
