As far as Pre school goes, this school is excellent. The kids do many projects, the teachers are super awesome with the students.., some kids leave Pre school reading and more then ready for kinder. I'm proud that my son goes there :)

Things are far better than they were in 2004. Not saying all is perfect, but maybe the new administration [principal & superintendent) are on the right path in getting kids to focus more on the whole picture.

Lincoln Acres has become an improved school within the last two years. Their API scores have gone up and there is a progressive feel in the overall educational goals of the school. Parent educational support is lacking in most cases. The support staff makes up for that difference.

The parents barely have any say so on anything. Not very secure either.

The Lincoln Acres parents really want their kids to learn English.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
