Mary Lin Elementary was founded in 1929 as part of the Atlanta Public School system. The school was named after principal of 27 years, Miss Mary Lin. We are one of Atlanta Public Schools' shining examples of student success. We are nestled within the Candler Park Community, right across the street from Candler Park's beautiful golf course and just two miles from downtown Atlanta.
Our students live within the Candler Park, Inman Park and Lake Claire communities. Mary Lin Elementary provides a world-class academic education experience with over 650 students in grades kindergarten through fifth. Mary Lin is one of the premier elementary schools within the Atlanta Public Schools system and our students continue to Howard Middle School and Midtown High School. Our talented teachers, staff, administrators and our dedicated parents work together to provide each student an impactful and nurturing learning environment.
