Lincoln County Public Schools Reviews

Lincoln county does not prepare you for college or adulthood. Most teachers are wonderful and easy to get along with, but the schools teaching system is outdated, and only targeted to one type of learning due to restrictions on the teachers. Not all children are taught the same, and a complete technological school will not help those who struggle with multiple disorders, and who struggle with living poor living conditions. In my opinion as a graduate from this school, I would try to transfer your kids out. Their school system is rated a C for average... colleges look for A students and with a graded C school that’s the best the majority of your children are going to receive with this schools academics. It is not the teachers fault either. They are told what to teach.

In my 4 years of going to Lincoln County, I as a person have changed a lot. The staff here, including the teachers, lunch lady, janitors, and the front desk workers are so kind and have helped me realize what I want to do with my life. In my sophmore year, I was in AP World Civ with the teacher Mr.Padgett, and he made learning genuinly fun. It was getting to the point where his class was one of the highlights of my day. He always was in a hreat mood which helped the class, and a lot of his students passed the AP test, including myself. But thanks to him, I want to pursue a carrear in teaching. But like any school, ours has our downsides. The restrooms aren't always the cleanest and the staff really could do better about bullying and their morals.
Our school system truly cares about the students. The teacher are invested in the kids and really want to see them succeed. The kids always complain about the food, but I am not sure it’s as bad as they say. I feel like the school system tries it’s best to make sure each kid is college and career ready. they have taken many steps over the years to make this process better.
