Lincoln High School Reviews
As a student Lincoln and shortly after graduating, I was unaware of how well Lincoln High School had prepared me for college. Lincoln was instrumental in developing my argumentative and rhetorical skills (as a result of its English department). As a college student, with the intent of pursuing law school, I am grateful for the strong writing foundation that Lincoln provided me. With that being said, my experience at Lincoln was not perfect. I have complaint with Lincoln on two grounds: inconsistency in the quality of teachers, a lack of oversight within the athletic department, and antiquated facilities. Despite my excellent experience with the English department, some of my other teacher experiences were bad. These lackluster experiences arose out of both personal and systemic problems. I had teachers who did little to help those what were struggling, failed to accommodate provisions made to students, and enforced a “proficiency”-based grading system.
I think there are a lot of amazing educational opportunities at Lincoln but the social climate greatly distracts from it. They have a decent anti-bullying campaign but lack of diversity and the staffs' reluctance to address it means that the racism and classism that students of color and students of less affluent families face is a daily struggle. There is also a rampant drug/alcohol/tobacco abuse culture that is growing more and more concerning. However if you can keep away from the distractions, there is a lot of potentials to be very successful student here and it will definitely help you reinforce and develop your personal own values.
I love Lincoln. There's little to no drama, mainly because with the academic course rigor, workload, plus athletics keep students busy. Counselors are always available, teachers are willing to help if asked. There's tutors available. As long as you put the work in you'll do well at Lincoln! Athletics are strong and the coaching staff is great, we've had several students transfer just for athletics. There's an abundance of clubs yet no clique's, everyone has a place and everyone there is there to help you students and faculty combined.
