Green T. Lindon Elementary School

BACK TO Public Schools

Green T. Lindon Elementary School in fast-growing Youngsville was named a Top Gains School in 2013 by the State Department of Education. The 2014-15 A-rated, pre-kindergarten-through-4th-grade school, south of Lafayette, also received 10 out of 10 bonus points in 2013 for its performance in helping its students achieve academic success.

The curriculum at Green T. Lindon Elementary School allows students to explore the arts. In 2013, second graders studied dragons in Chinese art as part of a unit that became an exhibition of the student’s drawings at the 2013 Student Arts Expo at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in downtown Lafayette.

The campus is undergoing expansion and renovation to accommodate community growth. An $8.9 million project that began in 2013 will add 30 classrooms, a new cafeteria and a new multipurpose building. The school has a high level of family support and involvement. A recent campus beautification project added a flower and herb garden, trees, shrubs and a wooden gazebo.
