Lincoln College Preparatory Academy is a very good school. If you're really serious about attending college and wanting to pursue a good career, this is the school for you. I recommend others to join Lincoln really early though as it will get difficult a bit if you're coming in say for example, your junior or sophomore year. It's better to start early and to stay focused otherwise it'll get really tough as it is a college prep school and they want you to be ready. I wouldn't really change anything about this school. This fall will be my last year at Lincoln and I can say it's been a really great experience as far and I can't wait to graduate from here, I'm sure you'd love it too!

I have learned how to use my intelligence for the good of the community and to become dedicated to my education. First, to use my intelligence for the good of the community, Lincoln College Preparatory Academy, made sure that I was always involved in my community. They made sure I gave back, tutored kids and even fed the homeless. I used the intelligence I have to good in my community because Lincoln instilled in me a passion to help others that need guidance. Lastly, this school taught me to be passionate about my education, this school prepared me for the real world. They informed me that if I wanted to learn I have to go get it because nothing can be handed to me. They taught me that I actually have to care about what I'm learning and try to apply it to my life. This school has bettered me as a person by all of the lessons I've learned because of them. My experience as Lincoln College Preparatory Academy has been educational, eye-opening and beneficial to my well-being
Lincoln was a great preparatory school. The teachers there prepared you for the future and the real world. Also, being that this school is an international baccalaureate school, the teachers as well as the administration push you to do your best. This school is also big on volunteering and community service which'll teach current high-schoolers and middle-schoolers the importance of giving back.
