My school offers good opportunities for those who pursue and are passionate about performing arts. Our various programs have wonderful teachers who are well-known in being simply amazing! Academically, we have students go to Brown and Harvard! We have college counselors who always reach out to us and have workshops and meeting in which they help us get ready for college. Our staff is generally kind and helpful, though there are exceptions. Socially, the school is generally peaceful and diverse, which is what makes Lincoln such an amazing school!

Something I liked about Abraham Lincoln High School is how diverse it is, and the amount of clubs and sports offered to students. Another aspect that sets Lincoln apart from other schools is that it is a preforming arts school so there's always school plays students can participate in, they also offer dance classes and have a competitive dance team, there is also band, choir, orchestra and many more classes students can be a part of!
I went there my whole High School career and I wouldn't change it for anything. I loved everything about Lincoln. The performing arts there are absolutely phenomenal! There is a variety of sports programs offered. To top it all off, the campus is also amazing.
