Lincoln Park Public Schools Reviews

I love the students and staff at this school. Most teachers are very helpful when you need assistance. However, I do not believe that they prepared us enough for college. I believe that mlre guidance and information should be widely offered throughout the whole school when it comes to post graduation preparation. I also wish that the school would properly fund the arts programs. I have watched my art teacher struggle with basic classroom supplies throughout my entire high school career. Overall this school did its job in educating me but only doing so slightly above average.

I love Lincoln Park High! I have been going there since 9th grade. I got to know al the teachers very well. They help you whenever you need it, not only with work or homework but with issues that need to be resolved. The administrators at our school are FANTASTIC. Last but definitely not least but out intervention staff is amazing. They not only seem to end up feeling like family but they treat you as family! The students all treat each other with respect!
As a recent graduate I can say I had a positive experience here, but not without its downsides.

Pros:
There is an enormous amount of school spirit here. The majority of students would say they are proud to be railsplitters and would always stick up for LP.
Overall, the teachers here care about the students and try to their best to help students pass.

Cons:
While most of the teachers care about the students and are great, there are limited academic opportunities here. Lincoln Park was a severely under performing school for so many years the curriculum here is catered towards helping kids pass instead of giving opportunists for motivated students to get ahead.

There are a large amount of sports at Lincoln Park , but most funding and attention is given to larger sports like football, basketball and track. This makes it harder for smaller sports and to grow and attract members and deters people from joining other after school clubs due to lesser funding.
