Abraham Lincoln High School 5

An excellent public school in a beautiful neighborhood. My student's friends have been admitted to schools such as UC Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, NYU, Brown, Princeton, UC Davis, Harvard, Georgetown, Boston College, USC, UC Santa Barbara...the list goes on. I only list these schools because some parents believe only private schools can help you get into these schools. Many other students attend strong CSUs, other UC schools and small private schools such as Santa Clara University, Lewis and Clark and Chapman University. Some choose community colleges for reasons of budget or to find focus before heading to a university. The support is there at Lincoln for all of these situations. It is remarkable! I have two students at this school and they love it! Their friends are multicultural, and tend to be well rounded in the arts, academics and athletics.

Great School, amazing performing arts programs. A lot of clubs for students to chose from. Teachers vary from subject to subject. Some are too strict on teaching one method instead of various alternatives for students that learn differently. Also they only pay attention to students that are succeeding more in class than those who ask for help and are failing the class. I had a good time because of the staff not so much teachers.

Lincoln High has offered my child an excellent opportunity to excel in sports, choir, dance and other activities. Mr. Hewittson, the principal, makes it known to parents that academics are ALWAYS the priority for the students. All staff/teachers are focused in teaching the subjects for knowledge, retention and success for each student. The campus setting at Lincoln allows for social and educational interaction. I am proud to have my child attend Lincoln and become an alumni member with the class of 2016. She has been offered the best public education at Lincoln and will be successful in college and any chosen career because of Lincoln High School. Go Lions!

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.

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 :)

Our daughter will be starting her sophomore year this fall. She absolutely LOVED her Freshman year at LHS! She felt very comfortable and safe. To be able to have exposure to all kinds of Arts is amazing! Lincoln is an awesome school!
