I liked quite a few of my teachers, typically my AP course teachers because they were passionate and interested in their topic. Many of my teachers however, I felt were less qualified to be teaching their area or field. I think the experience with Lincoln County depends on the school you attend. For example, Pumpkin Center, and North Lincoln High School are pretty good from my experience but I cannot accurately offer my opinion to other schools.

The teachers really care about the students, though the diversity throughout the school is lacking. The sports teams are also lacking, though the football team has dramatically improved.
The teachers were pretty good and I felt like there could be a few you could remember for down the road. The recreational aspect was also good and students had opportunities to get involved as well as the parents at times. Depending on each student, I'd have to say I was prepared for the next level after graduating.
