At first I went to Central and I LOVED it! ALL of the staff was incredible. They always strived to make sure you succeeded. Not only were they there to mentor and teach me, but I also formed relationships with my teachers that most schools don't have. However, when LWN closed down due to district debt, I ended up attending LWW. Now I can only speak for myself but I can strongly say that LWW was not nearly as good as LWC. ALL of the sports are very politically driven in terms of who gets playing time, who makes the team, etc. In addition to politically formed sports teams, the staff also did not measure up to LWC's standards. As far as I know, very few students, if any, had any relationship with any of their teachers. This was a very heartbreaking experience for me. Not necessarily speaking about all the teachers, just simply the majority didn't really care how well you did. They obviously wanted everyone to succeed but there was definitely a lack of enthusiasm along the way

Lincoln-Way has been nothing but a dream come true in more ways than I can count. I could not ask for better teachers and staff who have always done their best to help me succeed and go far in life. Through Lincoln-Way, I have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people, many of whom have become very close friends of mine. Lincoln-Way treats its kids with respect and treats them as their own, with no discrimination. It has awesome programs that help special needs kids learn in ways that are suited to their needs, while still feeling included by their classmates. I have been a student of both Central and West, and absolutely love them both. They don't feel like a school, so much as they do a home. Lincoln-Way is family.
My high school experience at Lincoln Way Central has been amazing. The entire district has so much pride for their schools, being the theatre portions, academic, athletic, or otherwise every student has pride. Going into freshman year having endured the mediocre pep assemblies and differing personalities of junior high I had no idea what to expect. I had no idea how big of a part of me would forever be a knight after that first day. Now as a senior I scream my throat raw at the football games, create relationships with my teachers, and participate in school activities. I do all these things with passion because the Lincoln Way District is the best. Everyone is involved and everyone cares faculty included. For my final year of high school the saying given to the entire school is; do your job and as a senior I plan to do just that. The Lincoln way district has given me so much and I plan on giving back, be it through writing online reviews or just participating I will do my job.
