Lincoln High School 5

Okay this is the BEST High School I have ever gone to. I moved to Florida in Oct. 2013 and the way Lincoln does things is great. Some people say that teachers are just there for sports but that's not true, got to DeLand High School and you will know that the teachers at LHS are way better and care way more about the student's success than most schools. DeLand High School is rated a 8/10 but you DO NOT learn anything so I don't understand how that's possible when Lincoln is rated 7/10 and you ACTUALLY learn. Not all ratings are accurate, I can tell you that. Dr. Jay Berns knows what he is doing and the success he is bringing to LHS is tremendous! If I could, I would transfer back to LHS tomorrow! -Proud LHS Student.

The good news: Mostly excellent teachers (especially in AP), a great sense of community and pride. The new(ish) principal (Jay Berns) seems to really be "in it to win it". He seems to want to see the kids succeed. At this school there is a real feeling of belonging. AP teachers are incredibly impressive The bad news: Culturally, Lincoln just has a large group of people who don't seem to put much emphasis in higher learning. Some kids just don't seem to care about learning and take away from those that do. They also have an iron clad teachers union which protects even the most ineffective teachers. We had a negative experience with a teacher and, even though the administration listened and took note, it appeared there was very little they could do. As with all schools, their counselors are spread thin and probably shouldn't be relied upon too heavily for assistance.

I do enjoy teaching at LIncoln High. However, there are teachers there who are there for sports and do not do well in the classroom and this is quite difficult for those students who need the knowledge to excel in college.

Go LHS!!!! I am a graduate of Lincoln High School class of '07!!! I am very pleased with LHS, not only did I enjoy the school when I went there, but I still enjoy it as I watch both of my sisters find their way through the halls. LHS' teachers, staff and students all work together toward one common goal unity. I attended LHS for four years and never had any problems with so- called gangs, drugs or violence. The teachers are caring, motivated and determined to help you in any way, but you yourself must take action and ask for it. Face it if your child is failing at LHS it's because of their lack of responsibility. ( You are not always going to be there to hold their hand)!

I'm a graduate of Lincoln High School. I am pleased to say that the atmosphere at Lincoln is just superb. As long as the student does not get involved with the 'bad students' on campus, all 4 years should be enjoyable. Teachers are always willing to help, and there are many extra curricular activities to take place in.

I myself am a graduate of Lincoln High School. I'm amazed how much this school has changed. Not for the best. Unfortunately I've had the experience of seeing first hand how bad it really is. My daughter was involved in an altercation awhile back, and I felt the cituation was handled poorly. Istead of 'getting rid of the problem' the school suspended my daughter and we had to go through the whole process of having an actual hearing. After a month of suspension, yes a whole month of not being in school, they say my daughter was not at fault. Imagine that. The only reason this came to head was due to the irrationality of the other parent. I do agree there is a problem with 'wanna be gang members'Just because my daughter chooses not to associate with them, they will continue to harrass her. I am very displeased.

Like every school, Lincoln has it problems but it is up to student to decide how those problems will affect their learning. Lincoln has improved over the past years. It is now a California Distinguished School and has the largest Agriculture Farm for a high school in the California
