Lincoln has been great to me. I feel extremely lucky to attend a school with fantastic teachers, great programs in athletics and the arts, while still remaining a diverse and inclusive public school. I made so many friends my freshman year and was exposed to several interesting classes in a range of fields, piquing my interest in social studies especially. Throughout my high school career, I have been exposed to a variety of interesting and intelligent people through my involvement in theatre, volunteer organizations and my classes. Lincoln has been very transformative in the sense that I've learned much about myself and what I want to do with my life, as my teachers have instilled me with invaluable knowledge which I hope to build on throughout my post secondary education. While I have had a few tough teachers, I feel as if this isn't a stain on my perception of Lincoln High as a whole; bad teachers are unavoidable and to believe otherwise would be ridiculous. Overall, Lincoln has granted me with indispensable skills in both academia and life, and no matter what college I am ultimately admitted to, I will know that Lincoln has been tremendously helpful in assisting me with my admission, more so than any other local school could.
