Abraham Lincoln High School Reviews

Because of Lincoln's dark past, many view it as a very low-class school, calling it ghetto and filled with trouble making kids, or not even hearing of it at all. From my own experiences I would never go back in time and pick a different school than Lincoln. Lincoln is its own diverse community with students and faculty from all walks of life that get along like a family. This school allows you to create your own clubs, sports, community service activities, volunteer programs, and so much more. This school provides many Advanced Placement classes, and concurrent enrollment, so students can work at a chance to save money when attending college. Our Future Center is a hot spot for Seniors applying to colleges, scholarships, and financial aid with the help of our two college advisers that work with us to create our clear path to success. All teachers serve as personal counselors to help us when we need them, and they wouldn't hesitate to do so.
Review Abraham Lincoln High School
I love this school. Not only did I attend to it my younger sister and brother also did too. My brother I currently a senior and my sister graduated in 2014. There was a professor that I loved his name is Mr. Marini. He was awsome but sadly he is not teaching there anymore. Good vives, great people, awsome atmosphere. I was in a class named Colorado Uplift and every Friday professors that teach that class, class mates and my self would go to give lessons to elementary 5th greaders. I also had a clash called AVID (with Mr. Marini as the professor) and it was really helpful for me because in my senior year the class focused on helping students apply to colleges, universities, fafsa, and scholarships. Also this class heloed us writte essays for scholarships. The only thing I would change is to bring back AVID class I told my brother about it and when he wanted to go choose that class they didn't have it anymore.
Academics are great at Abraham Lincoln high school,since your sophomore year you can get in AP or honors classes, which for me is great because students can learn how is the closest similarity to college experience work. Furthermore, students at eleven and twelve grade can already go to college while studying at high school so they can earn college credit and high school credit.
