There are some things I truly wish were different but I want to try to keep this as positive as possible. My high school experience hasn't been great BUT there are some good things that did happen. My freshman year, they had a variety of food that I loved. My sophomore year they changed to a healthier choice of food but it hasn't been awful. I have not found a single hair in my food or any other disgusting thing in my food.
The assemblies are fun! It's nice to see everyone in the gym because a lot of schools don't do weekly assemblies like Lincoln Academy does!

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!
While my experience was alright, there are many social issues that can be fixed at Lincoln Academy. Drug use is rampant, with pot being sold often on school grounds. Students juul and vape freely, easily able to conceal their "gadgets" and even when caught, are not often, if ever, punished. Lincoln Academy has a boarding program that includes students from multiple countries. Despite this, there is still a multitude of racist undertones in the school. The LGBTQ+ community is large and has a club, but slurs such as "dyke" and "fag" are used by some students. Teachers don't always know how to handle it. The administration does not handle discipline well overall.
