The mission of Carl Von Linne Elementary is to prepare students for college and career by providing a rigorous, researched-based instructional program aligned to the Common Core State Standards, with a focus on "educating the whole child".
Our school was built in 1895 and named after Swedish botanist Carl Von Linnaeus (1707-1778) known as the "father of modern taxonomy". There are a number of historical murals that adorn the school dating back to 1910. Keep checking back our site for our upcoming alumni section!
