I've had a good high school experience. The food sucks most of the time, but there are a lot of options, most are unhealthy. The teachers of the higher classes are great (except for one), but lower ones are not so great. The administration can be rude, but they are considerate and caring when the time is right. There are many dual credit classes available to prepare you for college which is great. I feel more confident moving forward because of this. There is an on-campus policeman during all school hours, and he makes you feel safe while learning. The doors are always locked to anybody on the outside, and they can only enter after checking into the office to earn a visitor's pass. The school is very safe, and there are multiple drills to prepare for the worst case scenarios. Basically every student and teacher is white with a handful of exceptions. There are tons of activities to get involved in, and many are well-funded. Sports are taken extremely seriously. It shows during games.

I truly loved and appreciated many of the staff members of Lincoln Community High. I can honestly say almost every teacher I had actually cared for my education and wished to see me succeed. However, activities wise I would love to see many improvements. Coming from such a small background, my school doesn't have a lot of money, so how the school spends its money is very important. For all four of my years, it has been made very clear that any activity related to the arts is not taken very seriously. Almost all activities funding goes to basketball and football despite only one of those teams being acceptable. I have personally experienced many short-changes in clubs such as scholastic bowl where we have boxes full of broken equipment we're forced to use due to there being no other choice.
Lincoln Community High School is a close-knit school. The faculty and students have great relationships. The amount of time and effort the teachers put into the students gives them the upper hand to learn and succeed in whatever they do. Having great relationships with teachers and peers creates an environment that is excellent for learning. LCHS is an athletic based school. The only downfall is the closed-off mindset that students have if they do not participate in athletic activities. Lincoln Railer Basketball is the focal point in this school. Overall, Lincoln Community High School gives each student great opportunities to be successful in life.
