Overall, I had a good experience and Lincoln High. We were provided IPads to use as learning tools in the classroom and for homework, and that was very beneficial and I have now purchased my own IPad to use for college as well. The teachers and staff are all very friendly and concerned for the students, I learned a lot from them over my years here.

I love how involved you can be at Lincoln. I do have a few concerns: 1) People who are in three sports and hold a High GPA are recognized. Those who are involved in multiple activities that may not involve sports don’t receive the same recognition. 2) FFA, band, choir, and the arts are always on the chopping block unless someone does something within those activities to get recognized. 3) It could feel a bit more like home. It doesn’t feel as welcoming as it could.
Lincoln puts atheletes on a pedestal. Atheletes are punished differently than other students. This is partly because our administration is composed of coaches.
