I love Abraham Lincoln High School! The teachers there are great. They help you stay focused and they will help you if needed. What I like about the school the most is that they provide you with so much classes so you can get a lot of credits and they provide you with extracurricular activities. Also, in the school, there is a college office and I love it. You get to know a lot about college and it will get you ready for college.

When I had first enrolled into Abraham Lincoln High School I was nervous. I had heard rumours that it had a large amount of students who acted up often. But I was floored when I finally entered my classes. Some rumours were true, ones where students occasionally acted up, but it was only ever the freshman who did. I did like the way the teachers taught their lessons. It was easy for me to understand and I learned pretty quick. The school as a whole wasn't as bad as I expected, and I'm relieved. Of course there are some minor set backs like the immature students or large crowds during lunch, but it doesn't effect my learning process.
My experience in ALHS was very interesting. You get to know almost everyone even though the school is very big. The staff is very nice, especially the security guards. They're warm and friendly, but serious in times of incidents. I really like how you have the opportunity to take higher level classes (AP, College Now, and Syracuse) to receive college credits. One thing I would like see change would be the bottle rule (you cant bring open beverages into the school). This rule makes you wait to drink your drink if you bought one, or even waste it if you forget.
