“There is simply no greater feeling as a parent than knowing how happy and comfortable your children are every day at school. The Linsly School truly is a home to my two boys. They deeply admire every faculty member on campus as well as their many peers. They take great pride in being members of the Linsly family, and for that I am deeply grateful.”
~ Judge Julie Selmon, parent of Linsly upper school student
“Choosing to send our son to Linsly in 5th grade was not an easy decision, because he did not want to leave his friends behind. We knew no one going into 5th grade, but he quickly met new friends, and we all felt so welcomed to the Linsly family. Linsly is a community where everyone takes the time to help students tap into their individual potential, both in and out of the classroom. The teachers genuinely care for their students, and our son’s successes have been reflected in his honors reports. I can’t say enough about the return on investment we have seen in five years at Linsly.”
~ Nancy Haynes, 11th grade Linsly parent
