Lincoln Middle School4

My son is a 6th grader at Lincoln, and so far he loves it and is learning a lot. He especially likes Ms. Garrahy, Mr. Mateljan, Mr. Robydek, and Ms. Day. The classes are too big, but that's not the school's fault. My son feels safe and there is an emphasis on the kids' safety and a strong anti-bullying stance.
I just left an IEP meeting at Lincoln Middle School for my 8th grade son. His academics have always been a struggle because of his dyslexia. They were showing me his scores from the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test where he scored at an upper extreme level "gifted" in his cognitive abilities. The best part was the whole meeting's focus was, "We know how high his intelligence level is so now it's our job to make the modifications to help him stay engaged during lessons without having to focus so much on the writing to complete his assignments." They really seem like they are a team focussed on giving him the education he deserves and if it means teaching him in a different way they're up for the challenge. Feeling really good about Lincoln Middle School right about now!
Lincoln has a modernized campus and Mr. Bessant, the Principal is great! The school library is open before school, and at lunch. The librarian, Ms. Blaco was even opened during the summer! The counselors, Mrs. Lomelin and Mrs. De La Pena, are also great. They are very helpful and interested in student success. Mrs. Day, the music instructor, is very good and the students learn to play well, and enjoy the class time. The teachers are mostly dedicated, with one or two that may be more interested in retirement benefits than student success. Overall, Lincoln Middle School is a very good school in Oceanside, with a dedicated staff. Most parents and students will say that they like Lincoln. I sure do!
Lincoln Middle School has great devotion and spirit in both staff and students .Children are very proud to state "I go to Lincoln Middle School".It is a great feeling when you pick your child up from school and they are genuinely happy and talking about their special day at school and all the happenings and the learning going on in in Mr.or Ms. classrooms ! Great things happen at great places and Lincoln Middle School in Oceanside is it !!
With a remodeled school, a new principal, vice principal and dean of students. The school has a wonderul atmosphere this year. The PTSA has a full board and they are always looking for parents to be involved. Most of the teachers will meet with parents and most issues can be resolved. I am very proud that my children have attended this school.
In the 2+ years that my daughter has attended this school there has only been one teacher that has made an positive impact on her. Overall, I am disapointed with the quality of education my daughter has received at LMS.
