I absolutely love my school. The teachers and administration staff are the best! Once I become an alumni, I would like to return to my alma mater and assist in whatever ways I can to make sure that Lincoln High remains a top-notch school.

I have been a student at Lincoln High School since my 9th grade year of high school and I now am a senior. Transferring to Lincoln to start my high school was the best decision I've ever made, it is a very diverse and welcoming school. There are many things I would change about my high school experience such as joining more clubs and interacting with others more but overall I can say that being at Lincoln was worth my while and as I move on to college I will definitely miss the environment and administration.

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.
