It's a really great school with excellent programs! The animal science program is amazing and will give those whom in which are looking into a future involving Biology (Environmental and Molecular ) a great head start. There are also other programs, but the Photography program is one that is also well known in the school. The school also provides students who wish to achieve at a higher level the opportunities to do so through programs and classes at levels that can be considered equal to or greater than an AP (Advanced Placement ) class. Some well noted programs even include college courses, such as College Now, SUPA, and more. Overall, Abraham Lincoln High School is a highschool that is well known for a great diversity within not only their students, but their programs as well.

Personally, I had an amazing time at Abraham Lincoln. Mainly it was because of the people I surrounded myself with. I definitely have to say that the school really does TRY a lot to give the students many opportunities. The amount of read20's I did over the school year was insane and overall enjoyed my time in the clubs I joined. I feel that the students in the school should have some responsibility into getting things done to have the best experience. Lincoln is also well known for their sports. Our football team is extraordinary and making it to the finals is an easy task. those who are interested in sports will find a variety of teams to join from lacrosse to swimming both for girls and boys. I am deeply grateful for the college courses offered to me throughout the semesters. I graduated from Lincon highschool with 9 college credits! I was also able to do the things I loved to do as a hobby. in my senior year, I joined set design which I absolutely loved!
At Abraham Lincoln High School, there are many programs you are able to participate in to help students. They assist you when you're in need of help with things like college readiness, summer jobs, and personal problems. Although, the school is not very diverse, they provide facilities for students just like any other school. Occasionally, they’d have events for students to enjoy themselves for the work they’ve done. The school is a very sports oriented school, so those who are good with sports will find it enjoyable.
In addition, for students who’re falling behind in their classes, the school provides teachers that are willing to stay behind in their free time to tutor them.
