Lincoln Senior High School Reviews

As it is located right in the middle of the suburbs and the rural country, Lincoln has a pretty diverse population. It still has a way to go, but compared to most of the schools in the area, it is far ahead in terms of diversity. It also has a growing athletic program. Athletics has always been important, but after the basketball team won the state championship last year, interest has peak, and much more investment has gone into that part of the school. Also, our choirs and band have consistently received 1 ratings (highest ratings) at festival and solo and ensemble. One thing I would change though is how administration handles issues. While they do it and try their best, sometimes it's just not effective enough, at least from a students point of view. There are probably many things that go on behind the scenes that we don't know about.

My overall high school experience was pretty good. I’ve had a very great support system and that has been with friends , teachers , and also within myself. I’ve learned a lot about myself and also learned to trust the decisions that I make , for better or for worse. My teachers and counselors have been a huge component to my education and me developing as a person. Throughout high school I became really involved with my school and the programs they have to offer. I’ve been (and still am) a proud Lincoln cheerleader, marching/concert band student, link crew leader, peer to peer member, and now I am going to be apart of the cultural diversity group. Even though these are all the things that I’ve enjoyed throughout my high school experience , something that I’ve not seen be represented enough is different ethnic groups. I want to see more diversity within the staff and student body so that every student has a space where they can see people who look like them and feel welcomed.
This school is very diverse. Both in a good way and a bad way. In terms of race and religions, you would expect to see many kinds. However, in terms of culture and morals, you would expect to see both sides of “the spectrum.” You would see the good students who behave and do their work, but you would also see the students who are careless and only do the bare minimum.
Their facilities could use some improvements. A few of the teachers here could use some different methods to teaching especially methods that prepares students for college.
