I really enjoy the support that is provided within my school environment. I especially appreciate being a part of the Magnet SLC (smaller learning community). I'm surrounded by like-minded people who have same goals or same work ethic as I do. My teachers of nearly all subjects guide me to push to my fullest potential and to always challenge myself. I especially treasure my AP Calculus AB Teacher, Mr. Yom, and my AP Microeconomics teacher, Mr. Zapata. They have their unique querks in teaching which I find very helpful. I used to dread going to this high school, only because of the negative word around the street that students get killed everyday, which is completely false! I've never felt safer anywhere else outside of school. Attending my school actually changed my whole perspective about it, and I've grown to love my school dearly. I absolutely wouldn't change my high school experience in any way. Most definitely, I'm going to miss my four years of high school when I graduate.

This is currently my second year attending Abraham Lincoln High School, and, so far, it has been one amazing journey. In an outsider's point of view, living in the Lincoln Heights community would mean violence and danger in places even within the school. However, ironically, it's quite the opposite. As a sophomore of Lincoln High School, I am a clear example of how Lincoln has influenced me. Though on the surface, Lincoln may seem slightly ghetto, it has in fact provided me with something more than just an education. Being a part of Lincoln High School has given me the sense of community, a sense of family. Teachers here care; teachers here respect; and teachers here want to see you succeed. Despite my graduation coming closer to an end, I know that Abraham Lincoln high school will continue being the hearth of love to many people living around this neighborhood.
Even though I was first skeptical about Abraham Lincoln Senior High School at first, I've come to love the school and all the teachers within only a few months after entering. The teachers and staff always had the patience to hear me out, and I felt safe and welcome everywhere I went on campus. Especially in the Math, Science and Technology Magnet. The teachers there were really caring and would always try their uttermost best to help me out. I really appreciate this school and how much they care for our education.
