I have stayed here for four years. The food is good, especially the dinner since their always have desserts. More importantly, the teachers here are really friendly. For example, they will answer all your questions. Additionally, the clubs are various, and students here can establsih their own clubs. In general, the experience here is really good!

School overall is great and improving every year, does not quite deserve the ranking it has, but also is not the best school around. Teachers are quite helpful and devote themselves to help you. Mostly it is not a school that everything is provided to you, you need to figure it out by yourself. Sports are taken quite serious and very valued. Sports players are way more valued than the rest of the roles in the school, but it is not at a level that is discriminative. People have different interests and characters. I tried to fit in the community as much as I could and earned unforgettable memories, however, there were times that I was not supported. Overall, Lincoln Academy is a great school for people who are looking for a good education in a small town community.
I spent my junior and senior year of high school at Lincoln Academy, I can say that I am very happy that I chose to study abroad here. Although I didn't like the location at first, but the activities the school programmed were enough to keep me busy. The friends I make and the things I've learn will help me experience different cultures throughout life. In my opinion the Lincoln Academy soccer program was the best experiences of coaching and playing soccer in a high level. And academically, the teachers that taught me were very helpful and engaged in the subject. I would recommend this school for anybody who is looking to study abroad.
