Open Quote We love Lyndale and feel it was the best possible choice we could make for our kids. Lyndale is hidden gem with an incredibly dedicated team of teacher and school leadership, plus a very involved parent community. Ranking the school based only on test scores is deeply unfair. Test scores are influenced by who is in the school. This is a very diverse school with a high number of English Language Learners, so clearly the test scores are not going to be as high as an all white school in the burbs. What matters more is how much progress kids in the school make every year - on that Lyndale is one of the strongest school in the district. My kids teachers have done a great job of teaching to students at all levels in the classroom, and everyone benefits from the very low student to teacher ratio! 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.
