I wouldn't want to go to any other school! The teachers at Lincoln deeply and truly care about their students and the overall environment is very friendly. I've been involved in the band, theater, NJROTC, Key Club, Student Council and am currently managing the boys soccer team. Trust me when I say this is one heck of a school

Overall Lincoln is a great school. The staff and administration seem to truly care about each and every one of the students. They do very well at including the parents in extracurricular activities. For example they allow parents to attend school dance orientation. One thing I wish they would change is the way they focus on sports more than academics, at times.
I love this school. So far I’m top scholar in English, math, and Spanish! Since, I transferred high schools, I’ve done so much better in school.
