As alumni, I can say Lincoln High School was a great school. I loved the environment and the diversity in the school. We are known for our Friday night lights. The enthusiasm each Friday with our pep band and cheerleaders. San Jose High are our biggest rivals, but I'm still not sure why we share homecoming with our rivals. It's tradition so I guess that's why it continues to be a thing. Teachers and advisors were very close to students and academics. I have very good relationships with my senior year teachers. You really leave having a very strong network for the journey that is college. I spent four years here not all where easy, but not all were hard. It was just right. Abraham Lincoln is a great school!

This is an awesome school. It is very diverse with wonderful teachers. The school offer a variety of levels of academic classes including AP classes in all areas. Students can start taking AP classes in their freshman year starting next year. There are over 20 sections of dance offered each day. They have a program that is very inclusive with over 500 students. The school also has a huge Performing arts department. They offer 6 sections, in Drama, Music and Band. We also offer 5 sections of Orchestra. Students are also very involved with our leadership class as well as athletics. You would be hard pressed to find a school with this much diversity in students as well as class offerings! The teachers are very caring to their student beyond there are of expertise.
Performing arts are one of the qualities that drew me to Lincoln. Unfortunately, there is not enough funding for this department and families struggle to provide their child to participate in these well-produced productions. Lincoln, however, did facilitate my growth as a performing artist and their college prep helped me narrow down my decisions and provided scholarship opportunities. The homecoming football game on Thanksgiving morning is a tradition for Lincoln families, teachers, and alum that I will always cherish. Bone Stays Home!
