We have shopped around and been a part of other educational institutions and not one of them compares to what Lyndon has to offer! Best choice we have ever made for our children's future.

I want my children to experience their classes and teaching without a teacher bringing their domestic issues into their classroom. This lady now has her friends posting all over the net drawing attention to her drama. Please tell your well meaning friends to stop the embarrassment- for all of us. Your being married three times makes no difference to us if your teaching is drama free and up to par. We've all heard enough please.

Too much drama! The powers that be shouldn't be allowing their Science teacher to bring her personal drama into her classroom. Really disappointed in this unprofessionalism. WE expected more.

I was told to sneak a peek on this review site for the drama and sure enough- it's here. The review below of the teacher has no place on this forum. The reviewer obviously doesn't have a kid attending this school or ever attended this school- unlike the rest of us. I had a kid attend here and we left because they didn't have a middle school at the time. I have nothing but good memories of the school and so does my child. It's sad to see drama like this being played out in the classroom. Hopefully the teacher mentioned below will stop the drama so this school can enjoy positive PR. Perhaps she should mention this to her "friend" who seems to be bringing much attention to a very private and personal situation.

Shame on Kudzu for allowing a review from a person who's child never even went to this school publish a blurb like the one above. If you didn't pay money to this school then your opinion about it shouldn't be on this site. In response to this blurb- YES- this teacher had issues with parents when she first started. This is public knowledge amongst those whose kids go there. Was it all her fault? Probably not- some of these parents were, in my opinion- asking too much and expecting too much. The middle school had just opened and there was always growing pains with these situations. But to have some friend get on here and "take up for her" just stirs up more drama for this school and it's our hope that this teacher tells her "friend" to stop as it makes her and this school look bad. We liked Lyndon while our kids were younger and loved the fact they were learning different languages. This school is a newer one compared to some of the other more established private schools in Atlanta and its location is great for those living out in the counties. We see a lot of promise for this school as it grows- BUT drama like the "review" above highlights is NOT what a newer and growing private school needs.

I personally know Rebecca Rumrill Collins. The review about her is not true. That post is written by a person she used to be married to who is cruel and vindictive. Rebecca is a professional with a great relationship with faculty and staff and many years of successful teaching under her belt. The person who posted this is sick in the head and needs to stop now. This harassment has gone too far! She is a fantastic teacher and a heart of gold and sweet gentle nature!

We have been very happy here! I was worried coming from a public school that she would be behind. But the teachers are fantastic and she fits right in! She loves that she is learning Chinese and Spanish in the sixth grade. I love the small class size. The teachers really get to know the students. When I asked her what she liked most about Lyndon, she said the teachers! "Some teachers go by the book. But Ms. Johnston rewrote the book!" That is the Language Arts teacher. She also loves her other teachers but Ms. Johnston realizes her gift in writing and really encourages her passion. There are other private schools out there. But I can't imagine finding better teachers. They are hand picked by the headmaster! They take learning to a whole new level.

We were quite happy with this private school at first. Our child excelled for several years- learning several languages and was being challenged daily. They were opening a middle school so we were happy to be able to continue the trend. Middle grades Science proved to be challenging early on. Lots of busy work with a teacher that expected it to be finished very fast. Grades that were A's started plummeting. Several parents were concerned for their children so we all just tried to work it through. When you are being told that its on the kid with no ownership from teacher- it makes a parent skeptical. We sleuthed and found an educational background that was lacking a bit in the Math and Sciences and no bachelor's in Education. The Masters degree was in educational technology which seemed very neat at first but the kids can't just learn to do robotics. They needed a more stable Science background. Ms. McNutt (Rebecca Rumrill Collins- I am told as she recently married) is still employed with the school in the same capacity. She would be great with elementary age students but not children in middle grades. Overall a great start for younger children.

My son has attended Lyndon Academy since Kindergarten and it has been a great experience. The teachers truly care about their students and really motivate them to go above and beyond in their education.
