    Overall Experience: I have had a good experience at Lincoln so far. I would absolutely choose this school again because it is so diverse and there is no type of person that does not fit it. Apart from the typical popular group, people are quiet accepting and it's easy to be friends with everyone! The school provides a variety of sports and activities to participate in year round.

    Overall Experience: I had a lot of bumps in the road from the moment I started high school, with having to be in the hospital for my first week of 9th grade but overall, I had an ok high school experience.

    Overall Experience: I found that the teachers were kind and so were the students. The downside was that it was a bit too athletic driven and the course load was tremendous.
