The student body is so diverse, you will transform within the first year. The teachers and staff are always focused on you and so helpful! The extracurriculars and programs like the music, drama, and IB program will ensure total involvement at the school. Not to mention, the area the school is phenomenal. The park and hill provide a serene and relaxing environment. The freshmen are kept in a different building, allowing newcomers to fully emerge themselves into the new crowds and get use to the high school environment. Lincoln park high school is ranked top tier in Chicago and nation, so I guess it's pretty awesome.

I received a great education and the teachers really care! I am now senior at LP and my experience is definitely one that I am not going to forget. I participated in the music program, choir, throughout my time there and has strengthened my music capabilities in more ways than one. I would recommend going to Lincoln Park because it is great environment for someone to pursue their high school career.
Pros: •Everyone gets along here well -very friendly people and no cliques •It's great academically! •The teachers are great and I love how we are very culturally involved as we encourage diverity, the arts, music, and student involvement.
Cons: •Cps is broke and because of this not many rooms have the A.C, and we lack many other resources. •We spend $ on painting the locker paint and wall paint which they chose wierd colors. •Just the apperance of this school needs to be fixed and cleaned. •The bathrooms are dirty and there are ants in my locker. •Instead fixing the outside of the school LP should really focus on the inside •Saftey wise tbh not really great as there are a couple muggings and robberies •The school lunch really sucks as many kids either throw food away or go out to eat • Not many club activities •Barely any school events and field trips
