I love the atmosphere and support in not only my high school, but the entire district. After the death of my dad, the support I received from all teachers, past and present, was tremendous. One thing I would love to see change is the involvement of students. Being a student athlete who also was involved in band, NHS, and mock trial, seeing more students supporting clubs and programs that are not as popular would be amazing.

I like that Abraham Lincoln High school because it's a very diverse school. There are different people from many cultures who have points of view about all topics. One example is our respect for one another, at Abraham Lincoln we don't care if you're a different race or have a different sexual orientation, we are all here to learn and that is all that matters, and nothing else. The one thing that I would change about Abraham Lincoln is hours that we go to school, I believe if we started school at 10 AM instead of 8:10 AM, us kids will be more awake and focused to learn, other than ignoring 1st hour and trying to catch up on sleep.
Abraham Lincoln High school gives you many opportunities to succeed. They have college readiness classes available to most students and offer a wide range of AP and CE classes. The staff seem to care about the well being of the students. Something I would like to see change however, is the clubs and activities available. There is a small category of the more popular clubs nation wide but nothing outside of the box or anything that interests me.
