Lincoln Way has changed my life. I have met so many amazing people and teachers throughout my 4 years of high school. This district has taught me you have to work hard for what you want and never give up until you reach your goals in life. The teachers challenge you day in and day out to ensure you reach your full potential each and everyday. I would not change a thing within the past 4 years of school and i’m said it is my last year as a knight but know that I am well prepared for what comes my way later in life either college or personal life, and to know i’ll always be a knight. Once and knight always a night!

Lincoln-way Central has to be the best school I have attended and I know this because I moved around quite a bit growing up. After seeing my fair share of schools I can safely say my current highschool is not only better at academics and sports than previous schools I have attended, but the staff is also much more welcoming. Even though we have a large student body the staff still makes time to get to know everyone and over the past three years I have learned how important that is. In order to really get through to some of the students here, the teachers work day after day and it is obvious that everyone is working their hardest. Not only do we have an outstanding staff, but there are also a wide range of clubs and sports offered by my highschool. There truly is something for everyone at Lincoln-way Central Highschool.
Here, Opportunities are given to each student. We learn in a safe, clean, and welcoming environment. I believe my school is an excellent example of a well organized learning place. Everything here is clean, up to date, & properly inspected. If a student appears to be struggling academically, every effort is made to help the student succeed. There are many activities to get involved in, most of which are fit for each students specific likings. One thing I would change is the lack of diversity. There are barely any students of color, nor do they get represented during black history month. I find that teachers give kids of color harsher punishment purely because they are considered a minority. If more represtation was provided, along with an immense amount of exposure to other cultures, students would be more willing to commemorate and work together. Discrimination would be lower while creating a better inclusive environment.
