Lincoln Public Schools Reviews
My overall experience at Lincoln North Star High school is great because I feel included and the diversity is incredible. I am involved in the girl's soccer team and couldn't be happier because the coaches are great, as well as the players. Also, the school has a variety of after-school programs that anyone can be a part of. There is also a variety of classes that you can choose that catch your attention. For example, I started pottery my freshman year and still work with clay now. I have received a couple of rewards for my pottery pieces! What I think the school should focus more on is including the parents with activities or preparing students for college.
My experience has been great so far, though one problem I have is that they don't call snow days for bad weather in the winter. It causes many students to feel unsafe driving to their high school and multiple students have gotten into accidents due to icy roads. Thankfully, nobody has died from this and the worst injury someone had was whiplash. Lincoln Public Schools is definitely one of the best in terms of education. No one fails unless they don't want to put in the elbow grease. A second problem I have is that teachers are not payed enough. Amazing teachers, like my ninth and tenth grade math teacher, should be paid more for the time and effort they put into their lessons plans and how they make sure every student understands the material. Other than that, do send your child to a school in Lincoln, your child will love it!
Having lived in the Millard district in Omaha, Nebraska for eight years, I have experience two very distinct school systems. I am a student who is pursuing her International Baccalaureate diploma. This diploma requires a tremendous amount of support and commitment not only from the student but also from the teachers and administrators. The school was so committed to helping their students not only graduate but graduate on a pathway that was going to lead them to success. Hearing from my siblings that they enjoy going to school isn't something you are likely to hear from children in middle and elementary schools. Not only have I strongly appreciated the help from my teachers through my twelve years of education but I have also learned through my siblings that at such a young age teachers are trying their very best to ensure the best educational experience for all.
