    Our school is committed to working with the parents of our students and the community to foster in its students a high regard for education, the self confidence to think analytically, act independently and strive to achieve success both personal and for the community of man.

    The James J. Flynn School will provide curriculum, instruction and facilities of the highest standards while striving for academic excellence by involving representatives of all segments of the school community in shared decision-making.

    We will encourage our families to:
