Lincoln Park High School is a great school, but it’s downsides arise from its students and their motivation. The students’ parents’ lack of emphasis on education shows in low performance from the majority of students. The curriculum is then developed to assist the majority of the student body which in turn lowers the standard of the teachers and their lessons. Students who care about and understand the importance of their education are left without challenge (but AP classes are available). That being said, the school is an excellent school. The administration and teachers do their best to help students learn, but ultimately it is the students’ decision to listen. Technology is abundant to help students complete their work and many teachers would go out of their way to help a student if they simply asked dearly. The school will struggle becoming respected in Downriver until students begin taking initiative and taking advantage of the opportunities presented to them at LPHS.

Initially when I began my studies in Lincoln Park I felt completely terrified at such an environment of immense diversity as well as learning. Lincoln Park does suffer from a 'bad' reputation throughought the downriver area of Michigan, but such information is only necessarily believed by those who do not attend the schools and have no previous experience with the kind, caring individuals who teach in the system.

During my time at Lincoln Park High school I've experienced only the best environment. The faculty is the most caring and understanding group of individuals I've ever met. When a student named Cedric was hit by a car the school did plenty of fundraising to help his family pay for his medical bills due him being completely brain damaged. When a fellow student passed away and the student body was left completely in shambles they all pitched in to give comfort to us--- the students, by setting up special areas.
I love how there are lots of things to get involved in at the school, I've made some great memories with the friendship I've been able to make here as well as the accomplishments I've made in sports. The cafeteria offers multiple decent lunches on a given day, which is a plus. In recent time there have been some progressive renovations being made that are shaping the school in a positive manner. During the hotter days, a lack of air conditioning makes it's empty presence felt. However you can't really complain since the building is kind of big and old fashioned, so implementing a new AC system would be out of the question for the next year. I couldn't really imagine going to another school and I'm proud to have gone to this one. 8/10 would go again
