Generally the school is fine but some of the students here can be a bit sketchy, and with the Freshman building the school is very crowded, walking throw the halls can be a struggle at times. The budget cuts that dmps is making is just making everything worse, from less school programs to worse food. The culture here is very nice, most people have good school spirit. Everybody just want to see each other succeed.

Abraham Lincoln High School is friendly and welcoming. The students tend to collaborate with each other and create large friend groups. The teachers try to involve themselves with the students and try to make impressions among their youth. I would recommend this school for students that want a fast track through high school and to the college experience. Abraham Lincoln high school offers lots of college help and allows students to implement a four-year plan.
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.
