What I like about Lincoln High School is the competitive spirit of dedication to education that is endowed within its students and programs. I am A Jrotc Captain CO (company commander) I have seen first hand, the soul of the Lincoln Lions. We are dedicated students who have vigilant academics and pride. Lincoln High school is second to McNair Academics in graduation success and scholastics within the district. Our students strive and aspire for college readiness in Cosmetology, Teaching, Science and Military careers. What I would like to see in Lincoln is the increase of SLC (secondary learning communities). Due to budget cuts we have lost Fashion, Wood shop and Automotive. It is sad to see these programs leave, when students have varying interest with. No other High school has we have the dedication to scholastic at Lincoln High School were quality is paramount.

My experience at Lincoln High School was interesting. It definitely wasn't what I expected. I did not feel safe at this school because of the students. Things happen that I feel like shouldn't have happen. Also, I feel like as far as resources when it came to test and work it wasn't fully there. The school worried more about us wearing our uniform than anything else. Some of the teachers unfortunately did not know how to properly teach the material they were supposed to and were very disrespectful. If one student did something did anything that was unacceptable she would take her anger out on the entire class. I found that to be unfair because it was not everyone. Overall, I wish I would have went to another high school. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.
Right now, I will be entering the senior year. I finished my junior year. Yes, it was very tough and very hard for me to concentrate on my studies because of all these incidents going on around. The teachers are great, the gym, the foodare okay. But it is very difficult to crack the exam to get into it.
