Throughout my four years of attending Lincoln southeast I’ve had the privilege of making a difference in the school. The teachers are very accommodating and strive to help us succeed. The school spirit is most definitely there and as soon as you enter the door, you have a sense of belonging. My only request for the future would be that teachers and counselors really pay attention to the students who may have trouble in class. Checking up on each student especially the seniors to make sure that they’re on the right track is something that’ll be beneficial in the future!

I very much enjoyed attending Lincoln Southeast High School. The school atmosphere was so diverse and overall very positive. My teachers were extremely helpful, kind, persistent and patient. I participated in cross country, speech/debate, and the music/ fine arts programs. Experiencing high school at Southeast felt so set apart from any other high school because of the connections I made with teachers, counselors and how I felt so connected and learned so much within my 4 years of attendance.
I wish I was able to respond to the comments on here, because some of the former students are obviously not the brightest. The softball team isn't the only sport that practices off of campus, so does the archery team. Oh, did you not know we had an archery team?! Well we do, and we aren't even allowed to use the Southeast logo on the shirt, which is beyond stupid. I wasn't there when the salad bar was in use, but it does seem quite redundant that they replaced them with flat screens. May I add that I've only seen them on about four times, if even, in my three years so far at Southeast? The food isn't actually that terrible, but it is sad that the lunch ladies are required to count out an exact number of popcorn chicken per plate. We also have a decomposition program for lunch, and it seems to be going pretty well, and it's leaving a good impact on the Earth.
