Lincoln Elementary is an amazing school! It has a totally awesome Principal, Mr. Williams, who gives fist bumps while greeting all the students by name in the morning. He is with the kids at recess and lunch will do anything to help them. The teachers are the best in the state and work very hard to give students a good education. My son loved all his teachers because they cared about him. Thank you Lincoln and Go Lincoln Lions!

Lincoln's Principal, Bill Card, is the BEST! He has lunch with the kids and plays ball with them at recess. He reads books in every class monthly. He knows all the children by name and you can see how much they love and admire Mr. Card each and every morning when he is at the curb to greet everyone with a hi-five and a warm smile and each and every afternoon with a wave goodbye. Just ask any parent, staff, teacher, or student just how much Mr. Card is appreciated. I feel so very lucky that my children attend Lincoln, the BEST school, the BEST teachers, the BEST PRINCIPAL ever!

The school provides numerous arts and craft classes such as the Gardening Club, Lego Robotics, Chess and many more wich help to awaken the curiosity and intuitions of the students and motivates them to express and expand their creativity. Additionally, the teachers and school staff are constantly pleasant, patient, incredibly enthusiastic and creative with their teaching methods. Prove of this is plastered in the classrooms and all over the school. It must be the Tiger spirit in them. Go Lincoln Tigers!!!

This is an excellent school. There is a lot of parent involvement, the teachers are wonderful, and the principal is a true leader. My only complaint is something that seems to be typical of CA schools - not enough extracurricular activities, and not enough music, art & gym for all grades. However, it's still a great school.
