What I like about Abraham Lincoln is that their is a lot of diversity within all the students. All the teachers treat everyone with respect, and the lunch menu has a lot of option with food unlike other high schools. Lincoln also helps senior with a lot of college stuff. Like organizing trips to colleges to see which cropped students would like to attend to. They also help senior by giving the a lot of tools that show them which scholarships would help them most, and Lincoln also helps students fill out the FAFSA application. All of these things make Abraham Lincoln a great school. But one thing I don’t like is that the school is massive. On my first day I got lost because there were so many floors. Other than that Lincoln is a great school.

Since I have been at Abraham Lincoln High School, I have grown into a leader and have expanded as a person and in my learning. I came to Lincoln after I had went to south high school for a month. Moving to Lincoln was the best choice for me and my family because it was closer to my house and I loved going to school. I am so sad that I will be graduating this year, but I am thankful I was able to come to lincoln for such a great high school experience.
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.
