J.J. Flynn Elementary School

Flynn School is a strong, community-based school where adults, parents and staff consistently focus on meeting the various needs of all students, helping them learn, play and laugh. It is a professional community that partners with a wide range of community organizations to support and enrich student learning. Some examples of our community partnerships include: Echo Center, VT National Guard Starbase Program, Very Merry Theater, Audubon Center and the Flynn Theater. Located at 1645 North Avenue in the New North End of Burlington, Flynn serves approximately 375 Pre-K through 5th grade students.

The property on which Flynn School now sits was formerly a hayfield belonging to Starr Farm.The school opened in 1953. Opening ceremonies were presided over by Mayor Moran and School Board Chairman Floyd Moore. Designed by architect William Freeman, the original building cost $300,000 and had 7 classrooms. Three additions have been built since then, and the school now has 16+ classrooms, a library, computer lab, art room, music room, gymnasium, and multi-use area. A city park was also recently added behind the school.
