My daughter attending in this school since 6th grade, and she is 7th grade now. I can only say this school is sucks! Principal and teachers are keep replacing since she was in 6th grade, and at least more than 7 principal replaced already. Never have field trip or outside activity from school. Communication between school and Guardian is not enough. Be aware of this school

im a 6th grade at LMS and i love it there. the school is probably best. the school has classes fit for everyone! you could be in band or wheel. wheel if made of different classes that you switch around in every 6 weeks. there's drama, french, art, etc. For band you try different instruments and you get chosen to play an instrument that's best for you to play. there's trombone, flute, sax, clarinet, percussion(drums/xylophone) and trumpet. the class isn't hard at all. i play trumpet and its fun! the school has dances, fundraisers, assemblies and other fun events happening the time. at the amp ( a hangout area for everyone) sometimes there will be small events happening at lunch. there could be a lost 'nd found fashion show, a music event or even a gaming event! its a great school, i really recommend this school for everyone.

I love this school, really, I do. I'm am a 7th grade student going there right now, and I love how that I can advance to Algebra if I want to, if not, or if Algebra's too hard, I can just take course 2. There are some downsides though, 1. Some of the teachers are MEAN, I've never had one of those teachers, but you'll know, you'll know. 2. Some of the students are annoying/mean/rude, and no one has been trying to stop them. On the bright side, there are amazing things about this school too! 1. Fun core teachers, there's plenty of them! 2. Outgoing, Friendly kids, it's not hard at all to make friends here! 3. The lunch is actually good unlike other schools :P 4. HUGE library and field There's one thing I'll never really get over though, it's the fact that they took away our school snack bar. It's not that I want to become obese and stuff myself with snacks, it's just that when I need to stay in a classroom to retake a test that I miss, it'd be nice to be able to go out and buy a cookie or a bag of chips so I won't be hungry at least. The cafeteria closes at around 12:00, and lunch lasts from 11:37 - 12:15, 11:32- 12:13 on Wednesdays.

If you're a parent get involved in your child's academic affairs because your child even at this so called good school could be looked over. Classes are large and teachers are wanting the type of students who really don't need motivation but would prefer to have a student without any type of disability even though they have special day classes. Don't get me started on that program; all styles of behavior goes on in that class so the learning environment is questionable. The front office staff is helpful but the one in the middle is rude at times so you better be prepared for her. The "Counselor" is also rude and rushes you....... actually that is the feel of the front office. I realize we are all human but taking a customer service excellence course would really be helpful and I think joining the PTA and lots of talking with your child would be an even more rewarding experience. I do have to say despite what I have recognized on this campus the children all look happy to be at this school. Also, we have to remember no place is void of placebo type teachers.

My son attended for 6th and half of 7th grade. We had just moved to Alameda, so this review might be helpful to those in the same position. It was really hard to connect with other kids as most of them are coming from other Alameda schools and have known each other for a long time. It would be great if the school had a new student orientation. The school has almost 1,000 kids, so it would prabably be well attended. Too many students, not enough teachers. The traits the students are told they need to have are not demonstrated by the teachers. Profanity is WAY TOO abundant. Teachers do not enforce the policy against profanity. Being a Calif distinguished school is great, but education encompasses more than just academics.

Lincoln is a great school, the teachers are nice, the band is super, and homework is a little overkill, but it challenges us, which is good. I'm glad they have geometry here, so we don't have to do it in high school. It's nice how 8th grade teachers focus on high school, getting students prepared for 9th grade.

Overall good, but too much homework that is just busy work. Math program is pushing many kids into Algebra too soon. Some teachers are great, some seem to enjoy belittling kids. PE is great, band is great. Another music/choir program as part of wheel would be good.

It's a great school and has excellent leadership from parents and teachers alike. We have great extracurricular activities and our principles and office staff do a great job of keeping our school safe and well run.

The Band is world class with Mr. D.C. A lot of focus on children with needs, but much more needs to be done for the GATE children.

My son was a 7th grader now moving on to the 8th grade and the teachers at Lincoln have been outstanding, they have kept me very informed of my son's progress and HW assignments. I am so far very happy with the teaching staff and the school in general. I am looking forward for my 6th grader to begin his year at Lincoln.

My son is attending the 6th grade at Lincoln. He has had a great experience thus far. With the exception of one teacher his teachers have been outstanding and his program high quality. I would like to see more emphasis on foreign language.

The teachers at LMS provide the kids with great opportunities for learning. The school has a high qaulity curriculum, though, dissapointingly, the district removed novels from the literature curriculum. The arts program is good in comparison to average schools. Community is very involved in this school and you can see many parents around campus.

My daughter is entering her third year at Lincoln and we are mostly pleased with her experience. The teachers seem to care and this is the best middle school in Alameda by far. Some teachers have stellar programs in place with great project-based learning. Some seem to do little hands-on (esp. science) and seem to do a minimum to make the curriculum come alive. That said, my admiration is there for anyone who attempts to engage 11-13 year olds.

As a former student of Lincoln, I have to say I think this is a great school. The music program was my favorite, and Mr. Silk was the best teacher I've ever had. Now that I am a parent I would choose this middle school over any other in Alameda without a doubt.
