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.

The teachers at Lincoln High School are outstanding! they go beyond any expectations, and make sure each student understands the material. They are willing to help students who are struggling, and explain/accommodate to the student's learning abilities.

My experience with Lincoln high school, i attended Lincoln high school half my sophomore year, because i moved into the school on November, 24, 2014. My teachers were nice, they cared for students including me as well. Some teachers are up to date with the grading system, I really don't know how the grading system works. The school is little strict, for example, if you missed or skip any class during the day, its a excused absence. When you do have excused absence, the school calls your parents and say the student had this much excused absences. Me as a student all have "ONE" thing in high school that is stuck in our minds, and that is graduating high school. Some teachers would care if the student been putting hard work, and been coming on time to class, being prepared to class, and getting good grades in all of your classes. And there are teachers that don't put in the effort, if the student been late to class, not being prepared, not turning in class work, and if the student is not putting in the effort.
