On Academics: i have loved all four years of english at lincoln-way. the teachers have been great and the books have been amazing. i only read at most two boring books at lincoln-way and even the teachers agreed that the books should not be read. the library also has book for any type of report that one might have to write while at lincoln-way.

On Student Culture & Diversity: it was hard for me to fit in my freshman year because i moved. throughout the years, however i have become more accepted at school. i have my teammates as my friends and many of the track runners. i feel accepted and always have someone there by my side walking in the halls.

On Food: the school has switched a lot of the hot lunches to wheat options and they also provide both fruit and vegetable in the lunches. in the other lunch line there are freshly made sandwiches, salades, and fruit. they school has a large variety and there are many options. i never have nothing to eat during the day.

On Teachers: many of the teachers are easy to get along with. i have been comfortable going in and asking help and asking for advice. many of them have even personally helped me make up a deadline, an assignment, and help with schoolarships. whenever i am having a bad day, they confront me to make sure that i am okay and and considerate with my studies.

On Extracurriculars: there is a club that helps freshman find their way on the first day of school. they all wear the same shirt so that the freshman can distinguish who they are. it is called the welcome crew or the link crew.
