Lincoln High School is a fantastic academic school with an excellent IB program. All of the IB classes are challenging, prepare students for college, and event give them the opportunity to enter college as sophomores.
Lincoln teachers tend to be great about giving students more personalized help, and are generally very passionate about the subjects they are teaching.
Lincoln also has a many of clubs, easily catering to most students. If there is not a club that quite fits their niche, students can create one! The only true downside to the school is the intense academic culture in some parts of the school that puts pressure on students to get stellar grades, do community service, participate in clubs, and do sports. It can be very stressful if one does not know themselves and stick within the boundaries of their abilities!

My last 3 years at Lincoln High School, I have built tremendous relationships with students and teachers that have helped me succeed in the highly competitive academic atmosphere. The best part of Lincoln is the overwhelming amount of support within the school. This includes after school tutoring, racial alliance clubs, amazing counselors and mediators, that gives every student the opportunity to thrive. Excited for my senior year!
Lincoln is an inner city school, and while the facilities were less than par, we are in the process of getting renovated! The teachers taught for the sake of their students, and really cared about the safety and well being of everyone. There were also many unique opportunities in terms of classes that were offered including Culinary Arts, Computer Science, and Product Design.
