    Overall Experience: I love my school in all and would definitely choose to attend again, although I know some other schools that I would like to experience as well. We are pretty well rounded and successful and I am proud of the track record that I have made at this school and the impact I will leave on it. I wish the students had more school spirit and motivation though. Some of my favorite memories include dancing at my senior homecoming dance and traveling with the football team (I am a cheerleader) and cheering on the sidelines every Friday night in the fall and traveling to the State Championship and playoff games. I also really enjoyed travelling to San Francisco with my Mock Trial team; it was an experience like none other. I am very proud of my school and will be very proud to call it my alma mater.

    Food: I do not eat it and do not know many students who do eat it and like it. Though I do see students eating school food. Most upperclassman go off campus.

    Administration & Policies: Overall, our administration does very well. They successfully run the largest and one of the most renowned high schools in the county and state. However, there is always room for improvement. It took until my senior year for my guidance counselor to know my name, and I am a fairly well known student on campus. I understand they are busy, but guidance counselors should be closer to the students; they are there to guide students through personal and important matters. The principal, assistant principals, etc. do well at running the school smoothly but are often biased and somewhat corrupt about things. For example, if a club wants to run a charity event, they only allow funding (or strongly prefer the funding) go to one specific charity and not disperse among separate community charities.

    Sports & Fitness: We definitely have some athletic talent among our students and great coaches to help them. However, I am critical and I have a lot of school spirit-arguably the most in the school- so my responses are biased. I would like to have more school spirit, more excitement, and more fans show up to games to support other students. This makes the high school experience more engaging and entertaining and creates a positive web of support among teammates and classmates. Football is one of our most prestigious athletic programs and the football practice fields/stadium are pretty disappointing as it is the sport that gets the most hype each year. We have the potential to do very well athletically, and often do, but I think we could do even better (I'm talking state championships here) if there was more motivation among the teammates for the right things. This is a difficult issue to solve though.

    Teachers: I have been fortunate enough to have had some of the best teachers that Lincoln has to offer in my four years, so my answers are biased. I am fairly well informed on others teachers that I have not had also. My teachers are great and do very well at getting information into students' minds. They are kind and approachable and want the students to succeed. I do know of some other teacher, however, that are not as great. There are some that take too long or are very inconsistent with grading and are very unpredictable. There are some teachers that clearly do not know the material they are supposed to be teaching and this is troubling for students who want to succeed. Most teaching styles work well.
