Its a safe, clean, and good school to spend your 4 years! Teachers here are mostly nice and good enough to teach. But sometimes, you have to take initiative to act for yourself since its a pretty big school so no one would ever come to you and asking what you think. However, this is a pretty good school to stay for four year without stressing yourself too much as well as not slagging and not learning anything. Therefore, as a mustang, I will recommend this school! And they also offer ELD classes for new comers which is really helpful!

Abraham Lincoln is not the best high school in the U.S but it’s where you can improve yourself and make your memory worth. The environment fits with everyone and as a English learner, I’ve received a lot of support from my teachers and the staffs are extremely friendly, also I made many new friends. I think Lincoln will be a perfect choice for anyone who wants to have fun and study at the same time, no stress. I would take one star off because they have to improve on the bathrooms but after all, everything is just great!
Throughout my 3 years at ALHS, I am glad to say that I have not much to complain about. My time here was definitely pleasant and gave me an opportunity to grow as a better person. My favorite aspect of ALHS is the diverse community that you will be surrounded by. Everyone here is unique and generally very nice. The school offers various kinds of courses that you might be interested in. The teachers are very easy to talk to and is glad to be teaching you. They can be very attentive to all of their students and will spend extra time helping students who need help. I deducted one points because the school building needs to be renovated. The bathrooms are old and covered in grafatti. The school also has a problem with moss and water damage. In the sophomore year English class, water leaked through the walls and onto the floor.
