I really like this school! I home schooled my children before taking them to Lincoln. Home school was my desire, but since I had my youngest son, it was too hard. Lincoln has been a great blessing to my family. My children love the teachers. And the rest of the staff have tremendously made us feel a part of Lincoln family. Thank you Lincoln for making tough decisions easier.

Lincoln teachers are the greatest. My son's 5th grade teacher, Mr. Culver, has worked wonders with my child. Mr. Culver and all of the teachers spend many extra hours working to help the students learn.

My 6th grader has been attending Lincoln since Kinder, he has never not been on the honor roll or principals list. This shows that not only is the curriculum wonderful, it takes wonderful teachers to help guide the way. M. Phillips/Casillas

Lincoln has teachers that really care about the students. I have seen many teachers spend extra hours planning lessons that will help students to grasp new concepts.

In the past 16 years, I've had four children go through Lincoln. I've always preferred Lincoln to the other schools, and have had my last two children on boundary exceptions because I believe that Lincoln is a quality school with quality teachers. In the Mesa area, 'L' schools, such as Lincoln, Lowell, Lindbergh and Longfellow have been given a bad reputation as low schools, thus, the 'L' label. Lincoln truly has done outstanding things in the last 16 years to adapt to the migration of different cultures and population. Lincoln has the ability to become a model school. I will always support Lincoln long after my youngest child is finished with school there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
