Welcome to Linden!

Welcome to Linden Elementary School’s website, home of the Lions! Our school is proud to teach approximately 530 Kindergarten through Fourth Grade students. The long tradition of our caring, compassionate staff and overwhelming parental and community involvement continue to contribute to our overall academic success.

We enjoy working with each and every child and family throughout our school environment. All students in our school will not only learn the much important Tennessee academic standards, but will also be taught to be responsible, respectful, ready, and safe.

Linden professionals work diligently, using current research as well as collaborative conversations to strengthen our instructional program. Teachers work as a team to provide student-centered learning, using developmentally appropriate curriculum and instructional strategies. We value the process that allows us to make decisions together, while respecting our unique strengths. There is no one right answer, but we strive to find the way that leads to optimal student learning.

Working together, we will be able to continue to shape our future one child at a time. Should you have any questions, concerns or compliments please contact our school office at 865.425.5701 or e-mail me mpmassaglia@ortn.edu.

Yours in education,

Melinda Massaglia, principal
