As we finish our 2nd year at LJHS, I can honestly say that this is a school who cares for their students. From the minute you walk through the front door, you feel welcome. The teachers my child has had have been incredible! They have been easy to communicate with and helpful to my child, even outside school hours.

I love this school! My son went through this jr. high and loved it, now my daughter is in her 2nd year there and I dread when the time comes for her to leave! Since 3rd grade I have tried to get her help with her dyslexia, no other schools even tried to help her until she started Lincoln Jr. High! She went from making D's & F's to A's & B's. The teachers are awesome!!!

We are looking forward to what the next 2 years have to bring. Bentonville is the best school district in the state.

We are new to the state and were quite shocked at the quality of education that the Bentonville School district provides. The schools are overcrowded but, they have an awesome system for providing the best possible education. The teachers are great and the staff is also. They are very involved with the students and are doing a great job! Very pleased!
