Lincoln High School Reviews

Lincoln High School is not the best school for your child. The education that I received here was subpar. Rarely, you will find teachers who actually care for your child.

But I can positively say that not all of the teachers will waste your child’s talents. There are maybe four or five teachers that I had who inspired me to learn and take advantage of resources outside of the school, which have been very useful in increasing my level of college readiness.

So, take a chance on this school only if you must, but just let your child know that with any opportunity that they receive—whether it’s high or low quality—they need to work hard to prove themselves. Lincoln High School will not challenge your child much, but they can always challenge themselves to learn beyond classroom material and make themselves stand out on college applications.

My experiences with Lincoln High School was tremendously outstanding. Throughout my 4 years of being in that school I’ve had have nothing but success. The teachers and staff are the most helpful people out there and does nothing but stay on top of you to make sure you’re doing right. They are also very helpful with the college process. Although it is a difficult time for us, the administration and guidance counselor make it a easy and stress free process.
Lincoln High gave so many opportunities I couldn't miss out on. Their best known for the Business Academy and the Scientific research program. Winning first place and running up in multiple competitions.

Great school!!
