    Overall Experience: Lincoln, in my opinion, is the best high school in Leon County. Lincoln has provided me with many opportunities and has made my high school experience one I will not forget. It has had some ups and downs but over all, I would not change anything about my experience. The good teachers and experiences definitely make up for the moments that were rough. Over all, Lincoln has prepared me for the next step and has taught me life lessons along the way.

    Food: I have not really had school lunch in a while. Lincoln, as I have seen through other's lunches, tends to serve fairly good food and gives enough of it. However I cannot truly rate it because I tend to eat lunch from home or go off campus with friends.

    Administration & Policies: Lincoln handles the issues within the school fairly well. I have not really had a major issue at the school except an incident when my iPod was stolen, however the situation was resolved cleanly and not such a big deal. I am not aware of any major problems within our school.

    Sports & Fitness: We have a huge variety of sports to choose from at Lincoln and most do fairly well. However, the support of fans tends to lean towards the football games and basketball games and not so much other sports.

    Teachers: I have had some of the best teachers at Lincoln. These teachers genuinely care about the students and care about what they are teaching. They have drive and enthusiasm. They make going to class enjoyable. Then again, we also have some newer teachers that need experience teaching and need to have a better understanding of how to handle being a teacher and everything that involves such as student-teacher bonds and the responsibility of having to break down a subject and teach it to a group of young adults.
