Abraham Lincoln Senior High School Reviews

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.

Lincoln High School is an amazing school. The staff and teachers care about the student's education and well-being. There are classes that prepare you for college and there are many opportunities provided for students to do so. If I could improve something at this school, it would be the lack of resources. Some classes don't have enough material to start projects, and some sports teams don't have enough funding to go to competitions and buy uniforms. For example, the Robotics class doesn't enough VEX kits to build individual projects, so some students aren't able to participate in projects. In Track and Field, there is a problem in funding. This year they weren't able to attend a track meet in Las Vagas and purchase new uniforms for their athletes. Setting these issues aside, Lincoln High School is welcoming and a place where you can grow as a leader and a person.
I enjoyed the presence of activities such as theatre at Lincoln which receives plenty of support and consistently keeps me energized and joyful, however I disliked the use of threats to "encourage" students to do as they say and found issues with student morale, staff expectation and overall warped attitudes on both sides of the fence. I enjoy Lincoln, but every school has it faults and I'm sure most educational institutions run into similar issues as they're not exactly places of freedom or fosterers of true creativity/personality.
