Flynn Park Elementary is the 2019 Bayer School of Excellence
Flynn Park has consistently made academic gains over the years, but what the school community — teachers, administrators and families alike — is really celebrating are the gains in their “social-emotional connections.”
“It’s the relationships we are building with our students,” Principal Nicalee Wilson said. “It’s the safety we are creating. It’s the positive learning environment we’re creating. That is almost immeasurable, what we’re seeing. The students have learned how to express their needs, and we are learning how to meet those needs.”
For their important work, Flynn Park Elementary was named the 2019 Bayer School of Excellence on Saturday, September 21, at the St. Louis American Foundation’s Salute to Excellence in Education Gala, held at America’s Center.
