  • School Code

  • Flynn is a community-based TK-5 elementary school located in the Mission district and bordering Bernal Heights. At Flynn, all students, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or what their needs may be have access to a high level, quality education. Our instructional program is rigorous and culturally sensitive. We promote language development and encourage social/emotional growth for all our students. Social justice at Flynn means that there is a strong home-school connection that will support student well-being, assure satisfactory attendance, and high-levels of learning.

    Flynn's teachers and staff members dedicate themselves to maintaining high achievement expectations for all students to cultivate and celebrate the intellectual, creative. and humanitarian potential of each student. Our school community practices mutual respect, embraces diversity, and inspires passion for learning. We believe that parents are partners in their children's education, and ensure ongoing communication between staff and parents. We believe that every member of the community should feel empowered to communicate issues and concerns, as well as to provide positive and negative feedback regarding the school experience. Everyone's voice should be heard. Our goal is to see students at Flynn Elementary enjoy intellectual development, a character based on morals, and compassion for others—preparing them to be good citizens and future leaders.

    Flynn's Commitment to Students and Families: We strive to provide unconditional love and commitment to each child. At Flynn, we acknowledge and attempt to understand the roadblocks students face in and out of the classroom and attempt to share their burden. We create pathways to showcase the brilliance of our students.

    Our Mission is to Prepare Young People in Three Key Areas:

    • Passion for Learning and Innovation: We develop leaders by encouraging creative, reflective and innovative knowledge-seekers.
    • Social Justice: We work collaboratively to meet the diverse needs of our community in a just and equitable way.
    • Community: We celebrate diversity and encourage acceptance for all people by modeling empathy, respect and non-violence.
