About Our School

Leonard R. Flynn Elementary School is a Spanish Immersion & General Education school located near Precita Park in Bernal Heights/Mission District of San Francisco. Our dedicated staff of teachers take pride in providing a safe and caring environment for students to learn and thrive. Our students are supported by a strong community of families, friends and neighbors.

Flynn's Commitment to Students and Families



Our Vision:

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. 


We celebrate diversity and encourage acceptance for all people by modeling empathy, respect and non-violence.
