My grandson goes to this high school. The teachers seem to make the material interesting to the students. The chorus teacher is wonderful - not just for what she teaches, but for her involvement with the students. Most of all, the school seems to be very welcoming and inclusive - the administration, teachers, and other students.

Lincoln is absolutely amazing! The performing arts are spectacular, and the school also has an excellent academic program. I love this school so much, and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.

I'm a Junior Here At Lincoln , It's a Great! School I loved Being Here Since My Freshman Year.The Year's I've Spent At Lincoln Made My Academics Soar The Teachers Are Amazing .They make me feel comfortable in the School Environment its safe Secure but i hate it that they have police there to make it feel like its a bad school it's not. Though I'm surprised by the increased number of New Students Attending ,there is the concern that 'This Is A Performing Arts School'And A Special One Of That that has Students with soaring talents.The Motto Is Do Right !.I'm Showing That here, accomplishing the commitment of my school showing this Review that hope makes you think Twice .It Has Things That some other schools don't have, A friendly community .Everybody Is Equal In every Way and in every way No matter of Ethnicity or Sexual Orientation .

At a lot of high schools, you may have kids hanging out with only one group of friends, their cliche, or you might hear often, 'You can't do that' or other discouraging things, or unsupportive teachers, but at Lincoln High School you don't find any of that. The reason I love lincoln so much is because of it's free environment, the encouraging atmosphere, and the performing arts. All the staff are approachable, and every student is super friendly. Also, this school puts on the most amazing shows ever, literally, the kids here are so very talented and take advantage of the resources they are given. I think any kid who has a love for the performing arts needs to come to this high school :)

Lincoln offers far more than any other private high school offers. Everybody is super active and there is a diverse population too. Students are very sesative and responsible, and it is a comfortable environment to be in, especially when you spend most of the day there!

Lincoln is such a great school. The principal, Chris Funk, is extremely active. He attends golf tournaments, mock trial competitions, water polo games, music concerts, drama plays and a plethora of other productions Lincoln puts on. Everyone immediately gets involved when they first come to this school. Being a magnet school for the arts, many kids interact quicker and proudly show off their skills in the classroom and on the court. There are a variety of clubs on campus where teachers and students are allowed to show their creativity, indivualism, and personality. I don't know anyone that hasn't had fun while going to Abraham Lincoln. They have more accelerated/ap/honors classes than other schools in the district. Lincoln has many awards given to them because of their strive to do community service and help students. Parents are extremely involved and you can tell students care about their 'job'.

Incredible school! Awesome principal - friend to all but lays down the law and has high expectations of faculty, staff, students and parents. Magnet school for the arts - highly supported by all and independent financial backing as well from the state.

I can't say enough great things about Lincoln HS! My daughter graduated & went onto be accepted into the Honors program at UCLA. She is graduating this spring Summa Cum Laude as an English/Political Science Major. She has been active in music in LA and hopes to work for a non-profit Arts organization. My son is graduating this year from Lincoln and was accepted at UCLA, Cornell, and will attend Georgia Tech where he plans to major in engineering, focusing in Nanotechnology. I think this speaks volumes about the excellant education both kids recieved at Lincoln while having the opportunity to participate in an outstanding music program and both served as attorneys on the schools great Mock Trial Team. The staff and teachers are incredible, intelligent, compassionate and dedicated!

I have sent three children to Lincoln. One is now a genetic engineer, the other a performance artist, and the last is a senior, excelling in sports and mathematics. Lincoln is a decent school, but the best thing about it is the acceptance. There is no racial tension. Many students are openly gay and are accepted and even protected. I believe Lincoln contributes in a positive way to the values I wish to instill in my son.

I went to Lincoln High School back in 1988-1991, and had a great experience both educationally and emotionally. I've heard horror stories about other friends' high school experiences, and I must say I had the opposite. There were no fights, no bullies, and no drama. Just lots of laughs, and memories. I'm still best friends with my girlfriend I met in ninth grade. I'd say I was fortunate to go to such a fine school.


Posted August 26, 2003

My daughter is beginning her senior year at Lincoln High. She has had a really great time here and has developed some very close friendships. I am extremely impressed by the professionalism when it comes to the shows. This is a performing and visual arts magnet school and they strive for perfection. They also have a lot of fun doing the shows, be it the Steps (dance) Concert or the many musical and dramatic performances they produce each year.

I have never seen such a warm and welcoming community. This school is free from the pressures of most typical high schools. The people at this school are taught to value one another and not tease and taunt the 'different' people. I have never seen a kinder environment from teachers and students alike. All this with the best performing arts in the state of California. Its choirs have ranked best high school choir in the nation at festivals. I cannot begin to say enough good things about this school.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
